About me and my therapy practice

Practice description

Hello, my name is Elena – I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor. I am based in Exeter, but because I can offer online and telephone counselling, I can work with anyone across the UK.

I work with a range of issues from stress and anxiety, depression, OCD, and bereavement. Whatever you are struggling with, I am able to offer you the time and space to talk about whatever’s causing you pain and distress, and work with you to find ways to change or manage those things that are weighing you down or holding you back

Counselling is so much more than like ‘having a chat with a friend, that you pay for’, as I heard someone describe it. You may not want to talk to friends because you don’t want to worry them or are anxious about what they may think, or even that they may judge you. Counselling can hold you in a crisis and help you to heal, but it has a lot more to offer than crisis management.

I am an Integrative Counsellor and this means that I have trained in a carefully programmed combination of approaches: this enables me to offer you a very tailored experience of therapy. My main focus for therapy, is to enable you to find a way through whatever is troubling you, so that life is more manageable, the future more hopeful and maybe even your dreams become possible!

The approaches I use are from different areas of therapy; I often explore past experiences whilst at the same time looking at what is going on for you right now.

The beauty of integrating techniques is that what we do is tailored to you, the way you work and what you need. But, most importantly, at the heart of what I do is to provide a non-judgemental way of being with you that can help us to build a trusting relationship.

My first session

I am aware that picking up the phone or sending that first email or text may feel daunting, and I will try and make this as comfortable as possible. Once you have got in touch, I will arrange to have an initial, no obligation, telephone conversation with you before we start sessions, to get an idea of what you are looking for from therapy and answer any questions you may have.

The most important this is that you are comfortable with your counsellor, and talking to me before we start session is part of that process

There is a little paperwork at the first session, but I aim to keep this as simple as possible, so that I can spend some time listening to you and understanding what has brought you to therapy. Sometimes it's not always easy to say in the first session, what you want from counselling, and that's ok. It may take a couple of sessions for you to settle into the work and begin to see the way ahead.

Types of therapy

CBT, Integrative, Psychoanalytic, Relational

Adults, Couples, Older adults, Young people

About me and my therapy practice

Wellbeing at Work Services (please see my Counselling listing for individual therapy)

The way we work is changing. For some of people working from home has created new opportunities, and for others it has meant the loss of the social environment and connection with others that is important. Often it can be a mixture of both. Work related stress can hit us at any point in our career, whatever work we are doing.

Wellbeing at work is essential to our general health and happiness, as well as helping us to feel fulfilled and satisfied in our job or career.

I work with individuals to support the better management of stress at work, assertiveness and personal development, as well as with organisations to enhance their provision for staff and leaders.


Practice description

The wellbeing element of my practice encompasses both my many years working in a stressful education environment and for the police, as well as my counselling skills. I am able to provide a supportive and confidential environment for you to explore how you can manage your stress and improve your confidence, so that you can thrive at work.

For individuals: We will spend time focussing on stress management and recognising your particular pressure points, how to deal with difficult relationships, how you can feel more in control in your working environment, communication and more.  

For organisations: I can provide support for new managers as they step into this role, existing managers who would like to develop themselves and their team. I also offer stress management workshops and can support you in developing a strategic plan for staff wellbeing.

My first session

In the first session we will make an assessment of what you are struggling with, your levels of stress and establish some goals to work towards.

This session is very much a space for us to get to know each other, and for me to understand your preferred way of working.

What I can help with

Anger management, Anxiety, Business coaching, Career coaching, Depression, Leadership coaching, Personal development, Redundancy, Relationships, Stress, Work related issues
