About me

Hello, I’m Eleanor, a fully qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist based in Sheffield and working online with adults across the UK.

Life can throw us all sorts of challenges. At times it can be tough. Perhaps you’re feeling overwhelmed or you’ve been holding onto too much for too long. Maybe you lack the confidence to move forward in ways that you’d like. You may feel low, stuck and disconnected from life and those around you. I can help.

How I can Help

I offer you a calm, non-judgmental space for you to explore your experiences and work through your concerns. It can be a relief to talk through what’s troubling you. I can help you make sense of things and find the resources to cope. Some of the changes clients report include improved mood, greater self-awareness, increased self-esteem and confidence, better communication and relationships with others.

My Approach

My style is collaborative, warm, accepting and responsive to you as an individual. As an integrative therapist, I draw on several approaches and adjust the work with respect for your preferences, needs and goals. We may work with the present, exploring your immediate and current experiences. We may also explore the past and seek to understand how earlier experiences influence you now. I see you as the expert on you and aim to understand you from your perspective, helping you to feel heard and understood.

Getting Started

The relationship between therapist and client is a key factor in the outcome of therapy. I offer a free, no obligation, 15 minute consultation to help you decide if I am the right therapist for you. Please get in touch to book, or with any queries you may have, I would be happy to answer your questions. I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
