Carol Ellis, Individual and Couples Therapist
I'm a psychodynamic psychotherapist with15+ years' experience and have a private practice in Frome, Somerset.
At this difficult time of Covid-19, when there is much uncertainty and anxiety, I am offering online or telephone sessions.
I can provide a safe, confidential space, whether ON LINE, TELEPHONE (or FACE to FACE), for INDIVIDUALS and COUPLES to think about the issue(s) that are making life and / or relationships feel difficult, to work to gain deeper understanding, support, relief and the possibility for change.
I am BACP accredited and BPC registered. We have an initial consultation and then commence with 50-minute sessions, once or twice weekly. Therapy can be short-term, focused or open-ended, depending on your need. I have experience of working with many issues including people whose lives have been / are affected, directly or indirectly, by cancer / other life threatening illness.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Psychoanalytic Council
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
