About me and my therapy practice

My name is Elinor. I am a qualified integrative counsellor who works under the BACP ethical framework. 

I endeavour to provide a welcoming, empathic safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and situations. I understand at times life can get tough. Different issues arise during our lives whether its loss, relationship difficulties, stress, anxiety, depression or anything else and having someone to turn to at these times is imperative to our well-being. 

I have been drawn to helping people all of my life. I have previously worked within the NHS as a rehabilitation assistant and more recently have worked as a carer. During these roles I have realised that a huge part of the job is being there emotionally for my clients. Having someone to listen to their problems and needs was a big part of their recovery and mental health well-being which lead me into the world of counselling.

Practice description

My Practice is over a communication platform such as google meet. Each session is 50 mins long.  I provide long and short term counselling.

I work as an integrative therapeutic counsellor. This approach ensures that I focus's on your needs adapting the therapy as required to meet those needs. My practice is largely person centred and psycho dynamic which means the work is lead by you the client and focused on the issues you present, providing empathy, unconditional positive regard for you and being congruent throughout. I also believe that our bodies can tell us a lot about unconscious feelings, and so I may bring mindfullness technquies into the practice if suitable. 

I work with a wide variety of presenting problems from stress, anxiety, depression to eating disorders and addictions to relationships issues, self esteem and loniness to loss and bereavement, trauma and abuse.

My first session

The inital contact made by yourself will prompt a brief telephone call to introduce ourselves and to assessment what is required for our work together.  (this is free of charge) Once this is done we will book in our frist session which will be a more detailed assessent, contracting and looking at the presenting issue. From here we can make a plan together of how long you want therapy for, what type of therapy you might prefer to recieve and make some outcome goals for us to work towards.
