About Liz Hawkins
I am Liz Hawkins and I run my own therapy practice (Wise Woman Practice) specifically for women in West Dulwich and Central London.
My approach to health and well-being is to see each individual as a unique person who has the innate ability to move towards wholeness in a way that is appropriate for that individual. To facilitate this I place emphasis on the therapeutic relationship with my clients regardless of the therapy I am practising.
I offer a safe, supportive and empathic space in which clients can be still and reflect on whatever issues they are facing. Clients come to me for a variety of reasons including emotional issues, long term/ chronic physical issues and often spiritual issues. Depending on what a client presents with and what their aims are determines the type and course of therapy. This can be either short term or longer term depending on individual need.
Talking therapies - counselling, psychotherapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy tend to be preferable for clients with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, bereavement, pregnancy/ postnatal & parenting issues, self esteem, long term/chronic health conditions who wish to explore this in further depth.
Bodywork therapies - tend to be more useful for clients wanting to relax, de-stress and improve well-being. I also offer pregnancy & postnatal massage or reflexology
Reiki - tends to be more useful for general relaxation, rebalancing and improving well-being.
Reiki Training - attunement to Reiki energy for self use (further practitioner training also available).
Meditation teaching - based on the practice of mindfulness meditation.

Registered General Nurse
Registered Mental Nurse
I have extensive experience working in healthcare having originally trained as a nurse in the 1980’s. My experience since then includes working with clients experiencing anxiety, depression and other mental health problems as well as other serious health problems including cancer & HIV. I have previously managed Complementary Therapy services in both hospices and acute cancer centres. I have been involved in teaching as the course leader of a Complementary Therapies Degree for over ten years. I have used complementary therapies myself both before during and after the birth of my child and have worked with many women during pregnancy and following birth. I have also had personal therapy with a psychotherapist for a period of four years as part of my psychotherapy training.
I now continue to teach in higher education focusing on therapeutic relationship and counselling skills and combine this with private practice as a therapist. I maintain a regular meditation practice having experienced the benefits of this discipline observing that I am more balanced and able to deal with the challenges that being a human in relationship with others presents.
If you wish to have a preliminary talk to ascertain which might be the most appropriate therapy then please do get in touch.
