Ellen M. Daly MBACP (Accred)
If you are thinking of having counselling, you are going through some difficulty right now and
probably feeling low or stressed, but, although it may not seem like it, deciding to have
counselling is a positive step forward.
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, even if family, friends or work colleagues are trying to help.
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, dealing with issues such as anxiety, stress
and depression, work-related stress, bereavement, loss and change, trauma and its consequences, relationship issues and family problems.
I am a BACP Registered and Accredited Counsellor, which means you can be confident that
I have extensive experience, qualifications and training in Counselling, and am required to
maintain ongoing professional development.

Critical Incident Training
In addition to running a private practice, I have also counselled in education, the voluntary sector and NHS settings. As a former Lecturer and Counselling Tutor, I have taught on many person-centred counselling courses, from introductory courses through to Diploma. I have also run specialist training workshops for practising counsellors, as part of their continued professional development.
I have supported and counselled staff at their workplace, after critical incidents, assisting them and their employers in understanding the nature of trauma and it's possible impact on their staff.
I am a Registered and Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their code of conduct and ethics.

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 /SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT I also work with clients, who may not have a specific issue as such, but are searching for new directions, 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.
