About me and my therapy practice

Finding the right counsellor for you is not only an important part but it's you taking your first step to start your beautiful journey, so I just want to say thank you for your interest! 

My name is Elina and I am a passionate therapist that promotes talking therapy as a great benefit to anyones life. I will actively listen and help you work towards your goals and feel better, whilst I provide a safe, confidential and professional environment. My priority is for you to step into your whole self and comfortably talk at your own pace on what matters to you and any difficulties you are facing. You can comfortably cry in one moment, reflect and see joy in another. 

Talk about personal matters that may revolve around; stress, self-worth, confidence, anxiety, low mood, relationships, work, studying, anger, depression, childhood or talk about traumatic issues that relate to physical, financial, psychological or sexual abuse. I also support individuals with exploring underlying causes, finding coping strategies, coming to terms with events and challenging unhelpful thoughts. Utilise a variety of skills and approaches to help maximise change and help you to manage better. I aim to empower individuals to feel like they are actually living, not just existing.

Working within the NHS and other well known organisations over the years has given me the advantage of developing more skills and knowledge to support individuals with mental health and further health issues. Talking to a qualified professional can help you gain insight, clarity and a greater understanding of yourself and that is what I aim to do.

My first session

I offer a free 20 minute consultation via telephone. 

To ensure that the service I provide matches your need in therapy. It is also an opportunity to discuss any queries, thoughts or worries you may have before booking in. We will then schedule your 1st appointment and within 48hrs you will receive a confirmation text or email (which ever you prefer).

On the day of your first session; I will talk through with you on boundaries in terms of confidentiality, how counselling works and you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions. You will also complete a short assessment form and we will both sign a contract to confirm that you agree on what we have discussed.
