About me and my therapy practice

Hi and thank you for looking at my profile, I am Elena, working as Integrative Humanistic Counsellor- Person-Centred, TA and Gestalt and CBT to suit your individual need I have always been passionate about people. I believe that every person is beautifully unique, special and has inner potential to reach high goal and be whatever they feel right, at their own pace.

As your counsellor, my goal is to ensure and provide a confidential safe space that you feel heard and understood. I am non-judgemental and respectful, taking great care by creating a space that you feel comfortable to express yourself, explore your thoughts and feelings of what is impacting your life – to see issues through your eyes.

It takes a lot of courage to contact a therapist and take that first step. It might be one of many reasons why you are looking for counselling therapy due to feeling stuck or just about managing to float with life situation. Experiencing stress, depression, loss, low self –esteem and confidence relationships or any other types of problems that can affect our lives on a daily basis.

Working together, we will explore your challenges and discover new ways of moving forward with self-compassion and acceptance.

"You don't have to be able to see the whole staircase, just take the first step" - Martin Luther King Jr.
