About me

My name is Ellie and I am a Holistic Counsellor working in all areas of the human experience, including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger, burn-out, addiction, grief, self sabotaging patterns,  and also neurodivergent themes that may result in distress, relational issues or low self-esteem. My specialist field is trauma and the common coping skills that develop from it's effects. These include the areas of disordered eating, body image issues (including body dysmorphia), addiction (self-medicating to avoid the effects of trauma), being drawn to abusive relationships and patterns of becoming stuck and paralysed in these damaging dynamics. The heart of my therapeutic work is to help clients discover their authentic self and to gently dis-engage from painful old beliefs they may have internalised from complex and overwhelming environments.

I am trained as an Integrative Counsellor, this meaning I will work using a number of different theories, it all depends on which theory is most effective/supportive to the client. My areas of specialist training are in childhood trauma, childhood sexual abuse, sexual violence, eating disorders, personality disorders and abusive relationships.

Counselling is a safe, supportive and confidential space for you to unpack thoughts, feelings and experiences. It is a way for you to explore and discover your authentic self and let go of any old patterns, processes and or beliefs that no longer serve your psychological, emotional or physical well-being.

Member organisations

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.
