Andrew Ellis Dip.couns, MBACP
Hello and welcome,
Managing emotions is an integral part of everyone’s life. We all feel positive and negative emotions at different times. Feeling negative emotions can be a natural and appropriate response to what is happening in our lives. However, sometimes we may experience becoming stuck in these emotions. This can be a very difficult place to find ourselves in. During these periods it can be really helpful to have yourself a safe and confidential space to work through these thoughts and feelings in a setting where you will not be judged.
Counselling can help with all sorts of different issues. It can help with positive events such as choosing a direction in life or reaching your full potential. Perhaps you are feeling a ‘bit stuck’ and would value the viewpoint of a counsellor. There may be things from your past that you would like to tackle or there may be things in the present that you want to try and change. Perhaps you are experiencing significant events in your life such as getting married and starting a family, leaving home for the first time or coming to terms with the death of a loved one.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the BACP and have a level 4 Diploma in Counselling. I will do everything I can to enable you to feel fully understood, accepted and not judged. I will offer you a safe and secure place to explore what is going on for you - helping you to recognise your own potential and further your personal growth. I use a combined approach to counselling and therapy, it is called integrative counselling, which just means I use different elements from various therapies to ensure our work is meaningful and effective. Integrative counsellors do not feel there is one single approach that can work for everyone. So when I work with you, I may be using a range of approaches and techniques depending on what is needed at the time.

50 min Initial Consultation £25
An initial consultation gives us the opportunity to get a feel for whether we can work well together. On my side, that involves assessing whether I am able to offer you effective therapeutic support, and whether I feel my approach is going to be useful for you. On your side, that involves getting a feel for whether you will be able to bring whatever you need to bring into our sessions.
50 min Counselling Session £40
This is your space! A time of self exploration and growth perhaps, set in a lovely, bright and welcoming room which provides a safe comfortable space for you to talk. We are conveniently situated on The Boulevard in Weston town centre.
I am an advocate for making counselling accessible to people in all financial situations. For this reason I happily provide concessionary rates for those clients who require it. This can be discussed at point of enquiry or further in our initial consultation meeting.
