Elaine Williams BA (Hons) MBACP
Are you wondering if counselling could be helpful to you and how to choose a counsellor?
I offer a safe, confidential space for you to talk and as a counsellor I will listen to you to understand your difficulties in an empathetic, sensitive and non-judgmental way. You can choose what you would like to talk about, as it is the worries or difficulties that matter to you which are important. We can explore your thoughts and feelings at the pace you choose.
Counselling can help a person to;
- express their thoughts and emotions with increased awareness, understanding and acceptance
- make sense of experiences and work through difficulties
- find ways to cope and adjust to life changes
- challenge and alter thought patterns
- increase self-esteem and self-confidence
- improve emotional wellbeing and resilience
It is important you feel comfortable to talk to me so I offer a reduced fee, no obligation, initial session for you to meet me, discuss how counselling may help you and decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to arrange to meet with me.

Photos & videos
I offer both short-term and long-term counselling, with appointments available on weekday afternoons and early evenings.
You do not have to commit to a number of sessions as this will depend on your individual concerns and your reasons for seeking counselling. The frequency and the progress of counselling sessions will be reviewed regularly.
A reduced fee of £25 is payable for the initial session. If you decide to proceed with counselling, a fee of £45 is payable for each further session which lasts 50 minutes.
If you would like further information or would like to arrange an appointment, please see my website or contact me. If I am unable to answer your call, please leave a message and I will respond as soon as I am able to. Please give your preferred contact number, say if there is a convenient time to contact you and confirm whether I can leave a message.
