About me and my therapy practice

Hello. My name is Ellie and I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist in London, offering sessions online and in person. 

My approach is relational and integrative. I am interested in developing a therapeutic relationship with clients and leaning into a selection of approaches that offer meaning and tangible support, tailored to each person.

Whilst I am integrative, my approach is rooted in the humanistic strand of therapy, namely the core conditions of person-centred therapy. From this foundation, I draw upon a number of approaches, including psychodynamic theory and compassion-focused therapy.

Jargon aside, I offer myself as a non-judgemental, compassionate and kind witness to your experience. I believe that we all deserve to be seen, heard and understood - and it’s within that experience that we find a path through challenge.

I have worked within different therapeutic settings, including low-cost counselling services, university counselling services, and within private healthcare settings in different clinical and non-clinical capacities.

Practice description

In weekly sessions together, you will lead and I will be guided by you. I may ask questions, notice patterns or themes, offer interpretations or reframes, and at times, provide gentle challenges with the intention to be wholly supportive.

Together, we might look at past experiences and relationships, and try to connect the dots between what’s happened in the past and what’s happening in the present. Most importantly, however, is what feels meaningful to you. Therapy is your experience.

My first session

After your enquiry, we’ll arrange a 50-minute assessment which is an opportunity for me to learn more about you, and you to get a sense of working with me.

If we decide together to go ahead, we’ll arrange weekly sessions lasting 50 minutes (a typical ‘therapy hour’), at a set time and date each week.

There’s no set timeframe for therapy, but I will suggest we commit to a minimum of 6 weeks to settle in together and then review your experience.
