E. D. Jane Ellis
I am a Counselling Psychologist available privately to work with a range of difficulties like anxiety, depression and low self-esteem mainly using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I can also provide psychological assessments and supervision to counsellors and psychologists.
I am keen to help people improve their quality of life through therapy, so they are not troubled and restricted by worries or low mood. With both an empathic nature and years of experience I believe I can enable people to understand their difficulties quickly and break negative patterns that might be holding them back. CBT is an active, goal focused therapy with strong evidence of success.
I draw on 20 years NHS experience and have recently moved to private practice to offer a high standard of psychological interventions with the immediacy and flexibility working independently can provide. In addition to CBT, I have training in humanistic counselling and family therapy.

Most recently, I have led a large primary care NHS talking therapies service for anxiety and depression. Before that, I worked with people with complex mental health and adults with learning disabilities.
