About me

Coronavirus update - I am offering online individual psychotherapy throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Please call 07943829140 or email info@elliott-psychotherapy.co.uk for more information.

Experienced psychotherapist working with adults in once weekly counselling or psychotherapy. I have worked in voluntary, clinical and private practice.

I aim to support individuals to overcome barriers that inhibit their emotional growth, such as negative, destructive and compulsive behaviours including addictions. Also those who may be experiencing relationship problems, difficulties managing emotional upheaval, anxiety and depression.

The process of psychotherapy can help us understand how symptoms are formed and develop into psychological problems and offers an opportunity to make changes to live a more healthy and happy life.

I have a particular interest in the affect of childhood experience on psychological development and work with an analytic approach to therapy alongside creative models such as the exploration of dreams.

My approach is predominantly Psychodynamic but I am also able to integrate CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Mindfulness which can help diffuse negativity, aggression and turbulent emotions.

Extensive experience working as a counsellor and psychotherapist in clinical (NHS), voluntary and private practice in London, Paris and more recently in Kent and East Sussex.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
