What do you love most about your job?
My passion is to see people change and be the person they want to be. The word Eleos is ancient Greek compassion, but the literal rendering of the word means to walk in the suffering of another; I think that totally embodies my idea of what therapy should be about. There’s an old saying that says you will know what a man really feels like when you walk a mile in his shoes. In therapy, my aim is to step into your world truly understand what is going on for you. Often, at the beginning of therapy, I will use the analogy of a walk down on a beach to illustrate how therapy really is. I am not to walk in front of you or behind you but side-by-side in your journey. Then, one day I’m not there you walking on your own, understanding yourself and how you truly are.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I love my job with a passion and what better way of sharing your passion than to be working it. I started Eleos Counselling as a way of offering therapy to people who may never normally see a therapist. Starting my business was a natural progression after completing my degree. I wanted to put some of the ideas, technologies, and ideas for therapy to a practical situation. Hopefully, this is all to the benefit of the client.
Why should our clients choose you?
My goal as your therapist is to help you unshackle yourself from burdens which may have been holding you back for years. This may be depressive episodes, addictions, anger, anxiety, obsessive thoughts, interrelationship and relationship problems. Eating disorders, and a multitude of other issues. Fundamentally anything that’s stopping you from being the person you want to be.
I’m not a passive listener, I actively engage with you to help you look at your problems in a new way sharing insights and offer ideas, often this will be challenging. I value being transparent and work hard to address, whatever issues are most important you on any given session.
I stay current with the latest training in proven scientific principles to guide my work. I also feel I have compassion and offer a non-judgemental and somewhat playful approach to engaging with clients. That is characterised by the way I conduct therapy. My work with my clients is highly collaborative, and in highlighting your strengths and insight is a central importance to any therapy.
We offer six session anger management course which can help you with your anger. This is individual and one-to-one with a trained psychotherapist councillor who is a member of anger management UK.
