A warm welcome to you and thank you for visiting New Frame Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My name is Lizandra Leigertwood and I am an experienced fully qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist.
I help people to improve their relationships, whether that's the relationship that you have with yourself, or the relationships that you have with others.
My counselling practice is based in Hertfordshire, St Albans and easily accessible from nearby areas such as Watford, Potters Bar, Kings Langley, Harrow, Finchley, Barnet and North London.
I work with individuals over the age of eighteen and couples for short-term counselling or longer-term psychotherapy.
Some of the areas I work with include:
I have a particular interest in women’s issues, trauma and relational difficulties.
I am an integrative relational therapist, which means I am able to draw from several theoretical perspectives according to what might work best for you.
Through counselling you can:
- Learn effective ways to communicate
- Identify what your needs are and get them met
- Feel calmer when facing stressful situations
- Develop problem solving skills
- Increase your confidence and self esteem
Maybe you want to feel better about some difficult family relationships and move on from past hurtful experiences.
Perhaps you feel that you react out of anger or resentment and would like to make a change, or you feel unable to make a decision or feel like you make the wrong choices.
I'm a firm believer in hope and the power to change, you don't have to go through difficult times alone. Counselling can help you to hear your own voice and make sense of what it is that is causing you distress.
Please contact me for a free initial 15-minute telephone consultation to discuss your individual needs.
I believe counselling and psychotherapy should be accessible to all. Therefore, I am able to offer limited availability daytime concessions for those able to provide proof of low income.

What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?
Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in the same or similar situations - perhaps you are feeling unsatisfied in your relationships – feeling used, unheard or just misunderstood. It can be difficult to expect others to change without knowing more about our selves and what we can do to sustain healthier relationships. We can’t always change the situation, but we can learn, develop and change how we deal with difficulty. Counselling and Psychotherapy can facilitate in finding a new frame of reference, which can reframe your experience, helping you to find clarity and understanding.
This is the first step towards help and change. Counselling can provide a confidential, safe and non-judgemental environment to fully explore your wants and needs. Together, we can work towards finding new ways to improve your relationships with others, and most importantly, your self.
The therapeutic relationship offers a unique experience where you are able to develop personal insight and awareness. This is facilitated by understanding how past experiences can impact the present. Understanding our patterns of thought and behaviour can lead toward lasting positive change so that you can lead a happier and more fulfilling life.
