About me

Imogen Ellis-Jones Advanced Dip Couns (MBACP). DC Hyp. Lic ASK

With over 20 years experience as a Couples' Counsellor I also work with individual clients on a one to one basis specialising in relationship work covering all issues with compassion and empathy in a comfortable and confidential setting in Farnham. Additionally I work with children using sandplay which helps to uncover hidden issues arising at home or at school. I offer an initial free phone consultation where we will chat briefly about your situation and then, on our first appointment, we will discuss setting up a 6 session contract which can be extended should we feel it necessary.

Couples/Relationship Counselling :-

All of us go through ups and downs in our relationships and, from time to time, we can become stuck in our patterns of communicating with each other. Perhaps we feel under fire from criticism or maybe we struggle to get our point across for fear of being misunderstood. Whatever the problem I will help you to look at your communication skills and work out different ways of dealing with your difficulties – perhaps you both want the same thing but are speaking different languages ! By understanding just why you are struggling it is often possible to work towards a more positive outcome or, if not, a more bearable ending.

Ideally, a couple will go to Couples Counselling together but if your partner refuses then there are lots of things you can do to help the situation on your own. If this is the case, a Couples Counsellor will help you to sort out your feelings alone which will often then make a positive impact on your relationship and may well result in your partner wanting to join in further down the line.

Individual Counselling :-

Sometimes when we are feeling low or depressed we need to talk but may not feel that sharing personal thoughts with friends or family is appropriate. Perhaps we do not feel ‘heard’ by our loved ones or maybe they haven’t the time to listen.

Can you imagine, I wonder, how it would feel to be able to talk, without fear of being judged, to someone who will listen and empathise for as long as is necessary until you feel you have control over the problem in hand? A skilled Counsellor will help you to improve communication, resolve a crisis and deal with negative behavioural patterns by listening and talking in confidence as you work through the problem.
