Ellen Daly MBACP (Accred)
I have been a Counsellor for twenty years and in that time, I have gained a great deal of valuable experience, working with a wide variety of clients with issues such as anxiety and depression, bereavement, loss and change, work-related stress, relationship issues and family problems.
Its not always easy to find the right support when going through difficulties, but deciding to have counselling is a positive step forward. If you're feeling anxious, low or confused and not sure how to move forward, counselling offers you precious time and space, so that you can really talk about your experiences, and how you feel about whatever is troubling you in your life. It does offer you an opportunity to break free from old 'baggage' and painful situations. It helps you to understand yourself so much better, enabling you to accurately identify the root of the problems and how you feel about them and then put the right changes into your life, to be happier and less stressed. Counselling could be such an important part of your return to personal happiness and wellbeing.
I provide a confidential, supportive and non-judgmental space, where problems and upsetting situations can be discussed and explored; to gain understanding, relieve stress and ease emotional pain. We all encounter difficulties in life and sometimes need support and some personal time, away from our normal routine, even if family, friends or work colleagues are trying to help.
I am Registered and Accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, which means you can be confident that I have extensive experience, qualifications and training in Counselling.

CARING for loved ones can be extremely challenging and, I feel strongly that all carers should have access to a wide range of support services, including counselling.
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT I also work with clients, who may not have a specific issue as such, but are searching for new direction, or want greater personal development and a deeper sense of purpose in their lives. It could be a low-level depressive feeling, a mid-life search for new growth, a spiritual crisis, philosophical questioning, or simply a wish to feel happier and more fulfilled, more of the time.
