Elaine Markidou MBACP
During this climate of COVID-19 I am available for sessions online or by telephone only. I am offering a reduced rate for Key workers.
Are you feeling stuck, anxious, have an addiction, experienced a loss of some kind, it may be an end of a relationship, a job or a bereavement. Not knowing how to deal with these feelings and emotions can be overwhelming. I understand how challenging it is especially the difficulty to ask for help.
Counselling will be your unique personal journey of exploration. Within this journey you will find insight, self awareness, personal growth and development to help you lead the life you deserve.
I will offer you a safe, confidential supportive and non-judgmental environment. Where appropriate we can also explore the connection between your current situation and your past. As an integrative counsellor I am able to incorporate different modalities working at your own pace.
Each session will last for 50 minutes and will be on a weekly basis. I recommend the minimum of 6-12 sessions. However, the amount of sessions will depend on you. Some individuals choose to have long term counselling allowing them to explore their issues further.

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.
