Elaine McIntyre Registered MBACP, PQ Dip CYP
I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I work with adults and also with Children and Young People, having experience of working in a Primary School setting and both Community-based settings and the private sector.
Deciding to get help can sometimes feel like a big step however, it can be an important first step on the journey of change. Counselling is like an investment in yourself and offers a way to gain perspective on your behaviour, emotions and relationships. It also provides a means of expressing your feelings in a non judgemental setting and helps identify patterns of thinking. I firmly believe in every adult, adolescent or child I work with and value them as individuals, offering counselling which reflects this. I provide a confidential, caring and safe 'space' to explore whatever issue has led to you seek counselling. I am experienced in working with a range of issues including relationship issues, loss and bereavement, self-harm, bullying, self-esteem, trauma and abuse, post traumatic stress disorder and anxiety and depression.
Sometimes even finding the right words to express the issues can be difficult and when appropriate I can also offer alternative therapies such as Sand Tray therapy and other creative therapy tools which can be used with adults as well as children and adolescents.
