What type of counselling services do you offer?

At my practice, I offer lots of different types of counselling services – from individual sessions to group therapy. It all depends on what each client needs and what they’ll benefit from. Because a lot of my clients lead busy lives, I also offer online and telephone counselling if that suits their schedule better. Although I always suggest coming in for a face-to-face session now and then, as these are often very helpful.

What qualifications do you have?

To be a certified counsellor, you need to have a Level 4 qualification in counselling. This can be as a diploma, or at a degree or postgraduate level. I chose to go down the university route by undertaking a BSc Hons in Psychology & Counselling. This meant that I got a degree and was accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am now a registered counsellor with over 10 years of experience and have completed a number of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) modules.

What is the main reason your clients come to you?

Most of my clients have certain goals in mind when it comes to their therapy. Often they want to resolve issues which are causing difficulties in their lives. This may be problems in their personal relationships that they want help working through. It could be with their partner, family, friends, or work colleagues. Or they may want to develop coping mechanisms to help deal with their own mental health. But often these can interlink. For example, if a client is wanting help with their personal relationships, this often has a positive knock-on effect on their own mental health.

Ellie has profoundly influenced my journey toward self-discovery and inner peace. Her Havening techniques made a transformative impact on my wellbeing. From our very first session, it was evident that Ellie genuinely cares about her clients. Her warmth and compassion create a safe space to foster a sense of trust and openness. One of the most remarkable aspects of my journey with Ellie was her ability to help me break the mind-body reaction to stressful situations. Through her guidance and support with Havening, I gained invaluable insights into the intricate connection between my thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations. Armed with this newfound awareness, I have learned to navigate challenging circumstances with grace and resilience. Also, my anxiety and feelings of self-doubt ceased to hold power over me. Through Havening and empowering strategies, Ellie has equipped me with the tools necessary to dismantle negative thought patterns and cultivate a deep sense of self-confidence and self-worth. In summary, I cannot recommend Ellie highly enough. Her dedication to her clients' wellbeing, coupled with her profound empathy and expertise, make her a truly exceptional coach. Thanks to Ellie’s guidance, I have emerged from our sessions stronger, more resilient, and infinitely more at peace with myself.
