True Connections Counselling & Psychotherapy is my private practice based in Fife, which offers professional and personal therapy in a confidential, safe and non-judgemental environment. I will work together with you to provide a service which is designed to fit with whatever it is you wish to change, cope with or attend to.
My name is Liz Millar, I am a fully qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) and also deliver trauma therapy through the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM). I work integratively with other therapeutic modalities and may also use Mindfulness within sessions. However, I will work together with you in a way that you find effective and beneficial.
My working life for the past 21 years has been within the voluntary sector and I developed an interest in counselling 10 years ago. This interest has lead me to train and qualify as a counsellor and then to further my training in CBT and groupwork. I have also trained in the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM), developed by Lisa Schwarz, M.Ed., specifically for working with severe trauma related conditions, such as Complex PTSD and Dissociative Disorders. Trauma related problems are an interest of mine and I am constantly upgrading my knowledge and research in this area.
I have experience in working with drug and alcohol addiction services, as well as with those who are directly affected by drug and alcohol addiction through a relative, partner or friends.
I have also worked with Fife Womens Aid as a Therapeutic Counsellor to women who have suffered or are suffering domestic abuse, many of whom have been through severe trauma as children as well as in adulthood.
I work according to the ethical guidelines of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
