About me and my therapy practice
Emotional issues can feel complicated, contradictory and hard to cope with. Could talking to someone help?
Whether you're feeing confused, anxious, afraid or angry, perhaps depressed, emotional and alone, not knowing what to do, I believe talking can help. Maybe there seem to be issues in your relationship that just feel impossible at the moment. Is connecting with your partner a struggle – perhaps there are some early separation issues, for example if you've been to boarding school which may also affect trust and/or communication ?
My name is Elaine and I’ve always been interested in people and their stories.
I'm trained as a Gestalt Therapist and Couples/Relationship Counsellor and have been working with both couples and individuals since 2010.
I also work with those who, as children, were sent away to boarding school. I can work with you either as an individual or as part of a couple.
I welcome people with diverse histories, experiences and identities, including those from minority groups.
I like to work at your pace and aim to create a safe space where each person can speak and be heard.
Gestalt Therapy is a holistic, compassionate way of learning to get to know yourself, your thoughts and your feelings and from there choosing what feels right for you whether it be the same as you do now or something different.
My fees per hour are: Individuals £45 and Couples £55
I have supervision with two qualified, experienced supervisors – who help to enable me to do the best I’m able for my clients.
I attend various Professional Development courses to keep me up to date and to expand my knowledge.
I work with both couples and individuals.
Whilst I see the majority of my clients online using Zoom, Facebook or Skype, I also work face to face in Allendale, when it's realistically possible and feels safe enough to do so during these strange times. I can also communicate with clients by telephone.
