About me and my therapy practice

I'm Ellen and I'm an experienced counsellor based in Edinburgh, I have 10 years of experience. I have experience and interest of working with anxiety, depression and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). I have 12 years of extensive experience of working with people with Autism. I have worked in charities in the social care sector for more than ten years.

I have also worked in a University Student Counselling service for over five years. 

My approach:

Throughout my career, I have chosen to work in either Person Centred and Holistic environments/projects. This has given me a strong understanding of a Person-Centred approach and an appreciation for individuality and the need for different approaches.

I aim to provide a safe space where you can bring any issue in your life. I’m a visual person so I use visualisation, metaphor to enable me to communicate my understanding of your world/feelings/thoughts during sessions.

I’m a warm, passionate and friendly person I am used to working with lots of different people and I make connections very quickly.

Individual circumstances can be discussed. 


I’m able to work on both a short- and long-term basis and I am willing to negotiate what you need from me and work together to find a number of sessions or therapy journey that’s right for you.

My first session

Although I offer a reduced rate for first session it is a full therapy session. In the first session I will explain how therapy works. This session is also really a time for me to get to know about why you have come to therapy. You can also ask my questions about therapy.

I am keen on doing informal reviews throughout the therapy journey  so clients and myself are able to take stock. The regularity of reviews can be agreed together but this is usually every 12 sessions or in shorter term work every 6 sessions. I usually work weekly but can discuss alternatives.
