About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I am Ellen! I am an integrative and transpersonal psychotherapist. My strength lies in facilitating your process of self-realisation, transformation and self-healing as well as turning your anxiety and stress into a new source of creativity and empowerment. Clients come to me with a wide range of issues, including but not limited to anxiety, stress, depression, anger, grief, loss, trauma, work and relationship issues.
I work holistically to provide a trusting therapeutic relationship. I incorporate deep listening, Gestalt, creative imagination, dreams, breathing exercises and body work to support your experience in the here-and-now. In this sense, greater clarity can be found in order to understand the roots of your difficulties.
I understand how difficult and challenging in exploring the inner world when some preverbal trauma surfaces. I have been in that place myself so you are not alone.
Please allow me to bring out the potential in you and facilitate your journey of transformation, no matter what stage you are in!
If you have overwhelming issues, I am always here to talk to.
I hold a Master Degree in Transpersonal Counselling and Psychotherapy (CCPE/University of Northampton), a Diploma in Transpersonal Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (CCPE) and a BA in Business Studies (University of Leeds).
I am a registered member with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
As a former UK-China business women turned psychotherapist, I am passionate to bring balance between the business world and the mental health, the outer world and the inner reality.
When face to face is possible, I normally see clients in the Centre of Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in London W2 as well as in Rickmansworth WD3.
I am currently working online. Sessions can be conducted in English or Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese).
Fees: £60 - £90 per session (50mins), depending on individual circumstances.
