About me

Welcome to my profile. I'm Elaine, an experienced counsellor of 18 years, drawing on many techniques to help you cope if you are feeling overwhelmed by life's many challenges. Do you find yourself struggling to navigate your way through difficult emotions and situations? If so, then I am here to offer you a safe space where you can explore your feelings, gain clarity and discover your inner strength. 

It can sometimes be that a different perspective is achieved by talking through the difficulties, which can change how you feel. It may be a reflection of low self-esteem, which can impact your view on life, so you can explore and achieve a deeper self-awareness to enable you to build resilience, face challenges, and feel stronger.  

Whatever the problem, be it anxiety, stress, low mood and depression, relationships, addictions, family,  workplace or some challenging system which you are trying to cope with, the solution is always within yourself. You may even want to seek personal growth and development, and counselling is an excellent way to learn more about yourself. Together we will explore your thoughts and feelings, identify underlying patterns and develop practical strategies to help you move forward with confidence and resilience. 

As a dedicated counsellor, my mission is to empower individuals like you to overcome obstacles and thrive. With a compassionate and non-judgmental approach, I provide personalised counselling sessions tailored to your unique needs and goals, drawing on a diverse range of therapeutic techniques, including cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness-based approaches and solution-focused therapy. I will work with you to foster insight and promote positive change. 

I believe that every individual has the potential to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life and I'm committed to helping you unlock that potential. No matter what challenges you are facing remember that you are not alone. Take the first step and call or email me and we can move forward from there.

I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation and then we can arrange an appointment, be it face-to-face, online, via Zoom or by telephone. You’re in control, so give me a call and find a way home to emotional freedom. It may be the best gift you can give to yourself!

Member organisations

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
