About me

My name is Chris Eliot and I run my private practice as an Integrative psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor from my base in Alton, North Hampshire. My work as an Integrative psychotherapist is underpinned by 30 years' experience of working in the NHS and private sector with adult; including individuals and couples. I specialise in trauma, grief and loss. I have a particular interest and expertise in working with women's health specifically related to pregnancy, fertility, and IVF treatment.

I offer 'time-limited' and 'open-ended' longer term therapy dependent on needs. I am committed to providing a thoughtful, safe, confidential, and non-judgemental environment in which our work can evolve.

I offer 'face to face' and remote sessions.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Additional information

Payments would be made by bank transfer. I also require 48 hours' notice for cancellations, if not than full charges would be due.

Further information

Therapy is a very personal experience. I view effective therapy as a process of collaboration between client and therapist. When successful, I believe it has the capacity to transform lives in relation to insight, healing, and growth.

As an Integrative practitioner, I also utilise EMDR therapy when (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) when working with client's trauma experiences.
