About me

Hi, I'm Ella, and I'm a qualified Counsellor, based in Chelmsford, offering face to face and virtual support tailored to your individual needs.

I believe you are the best ProjectYou will ever work on, but sometimes we all need a bit of support. 

How I can support you?

I offer a supportive environment where you can feel comfortable to talk about your thoughts, feelings, choices, and experiences, without fear of judgement. A place where you feel heard and respected. ​

We are all unique, and our experiences, and the challenges we face are unique to each of us. As an integrative counsellor I use a range of different counselling approaches and techniques, completely tailored to you, supporting you to find the best outcomes for you.

I can support you with range of issues you may be facing including anxiety, panic, stress, work related stress, low mood & depression, low self-esteem, family & relationship issues, grief & bereavement, pre & post natal anxiety & depression, and more.

Counselling sessions are offered at a variety of times to suit you.

Sessions are held in my private studio, or virtually, whichever works best for you. 

How can I find out more?

I am currently taking on new clients and if you'd like to find out more about how counselling can support you please give me a call on 07709490130 or email me at ella@projectyoucounselling.co.uk 

I will then give you a call to introduce myself, find out a little bit more about you and discuss how I can support you.
