About me and my therapy practice

My name is Ellen, and I am a person-centred counsellor offering 1-2-1 counselling sessions. I offer a confidential, safe environment where you can speak freely, without judgment. I currently offer sessions facilitated either online (Zoom), walk and talk or via the phone, to over 18’s. Your sessions can be either long or short term the choice is yours.


Practice description

We all have a different reason as to why they are seeking counselling. You could be feeling anxious, unable to cope, distressed, have low self-esteem or just want to be heard. No two people are exactly the same. We are all individuals. We are all unique. I am unable to offer advice and I will never dictate what you should do or how you should deal with a situation, that is not what I am here for. I am here to listen to you and provide you with an unbiased ear. I aim to provide you with an environment where you feel safe and comfortable enough to be able to explore your thoughts and feelings. Your counselling sessions are let by you.

I understand that you may be nervous, it takes courage to seek counselling and even more courage to make the initial contact with a potential counsellor. Your reasons for seeking counselling may already be causing you some distress, I understand this and will do everything that I can to make you feel at ease.

I am unable to offer advice and I will never dictate what you should do or how you should deal with a situation, that is not what I am here for. I am here to listen to you and provide you with an unbiased ear. I aim to provide you with an environment where you feel safe and comfortable enough to be able to explore your thoughts and feelings. At all times, your counselling is led by you.

My first session

We will have an initial free 15-minute (or so) telephone (or on Zoom if you prefer) assessment. Here you will have the opportunity to ask me any questions you may have. We will discuss what has brought you to seek counselling and I will need to ask you a few questions. It is also an opportunity for you to decide if I am the right counsellor for you. During this contact, I will also talk to you about the admin side of things and if you would like to go ahead with counselling with me, then we will book your first session. With Walk and Talk Counselling, I do like the first session to be on zoom if that is possible, it is a way of us meeting and we will be able to recognise each other when we do meet, if you are unable to use Zoom then let me know and we can discuss our options.

If you would like to make an appointment, please feel free to email me at: ellen@butterfly-effect.me.uk or you can use the contact form on the website.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
