Elaine Bramhall - Therapeutic Counsellor & Supervisor - Individuals & Couples
I offer a quiet space to explore the issues that are troubling you at a pace that suits you. I will work with you to identify and tackle the source of unrest or distress and together we will find ways to navigate through that distress and bring more control and personal power to your life.
So why choose counselling? It is now widely recognised that 'talking therapies' are an effective and helpful way to deal with many of the issues which trouble us throughout our life. Life can often leave us feeling overwhelmed and out of control leaving a sense of powerlessness, which left, can lead to more serious ill health such as clinical depression for example.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a person centred counsellor in 2006 and have been in practice ever since. I have worked in the voluntary sector as well as hospice settings and have been in private practice since 2008. I have worked with adults experiencing many aspects of distress as well as struggles adjusting to changes in life due to ageing, relationship difficulties and breakdown, loss and bereavement, stress and anxiety as well as adjusting to living with a life limiting diagnosis.
I qualified as a midwife 1997 and then went on to work in cancer and end of life care before moving to consultancy work providing communication skills training workshops for health and social care staff. I now combine my private practice as a counsellor with supporting health care professional develop skills to improve their communication with patients and carers.
I work within the BACP ethical framework, keep myself up to date and have regular supervision.
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.
