Life often throws us a curve ball, something painful, unexpected, frightening or devastating. We all have coping strategies and sometimes they can be unhealthy ones. What happens when they don't work or they become too destructive or unmanageable?

Elaine has helped me immensely since I’ve started having sessions with her. She made me realise a lot of things I would not have realised on my own and healthy coping mechanisms. There is always no judgement and she makes you feel 100% comfortable More...

Elaine is a just simply a wonderful human being. When she decided to train as a Counsellor I knew her clients would be lucky people. She has given years of her life to voluntary work to safeguard children and vulnerable adults. If you are looking for help from a compassionate, knowledgeable and practical Counsellor then look no further. More...

I spent several years in therapy because I believe in the power of therapy . I love that it empowers people to make changes in their lives, relationships with others and most importantly with themselves. Everyone I work with brings something new and I love to learn from my clients and watch them make progress. I really enjoy working with children and young people as well as adults, their ability to embrace the whole therapy process is amazing

After working for charities providing counselling I decided to make it my official job and sent several years training and widening my experience. This business is just a joy to have.

I believe that we all have choices, we can all change, we can all make meaningful connections with others and we are all ok. I work with you not as an expert but a ‘fellow traveler ‘on your journey to feeling good again. As humanistic therapist, I look at childhood patterns, your life story (told by you for you) and how all these effects the present. There is no judgement in our sessions but there will be openness, honesty and confidentiality. Our relationship & connection will reflect how relationships work in the outside world for you.

Therapy sessions with me are warm and empathic, allowing you to be free to express yourself in the way you want to. I use creativity, colour, music, literature, media and laughter to help with exploration of areas that maybe difficult to verbalize. By observation, challenge and joint investigation of meaning we can open new areas of growth, change and choice for you.
