About me

Hello my name is Eleanor and I am a fully qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and psychotherapist.

My private practice is at the New Street Clinic in Horsham RH13 5DU West Sussex (accessible by car and public transport) which is walking distance from Horsham train station. I provide individual short and long term counselling and psychotherapy for men and women over 18yrs in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental setting.

I work with an Integrative model of counselling and psychotherapy in which I integrate aspects of humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive therapies to suit each client's needs.

People seek counselling for all sorts of reasons. It could be something that rears it's head every now and again and gets in the way, or an issue that you've recently experienced or it could be something you've carried for a long time. It's never too late to seek help....you may feel that it will never get better, in my experience with the right support, it can change. This is where counselling and psychotherapy can help you.

Choosing a counsellor can in it's self be stressful and worrying.....Will I like this person? Can they help me? Will they care? I think it's important to go with your gut feeling and see what happens, if you feel you are able to trust this person then that's great, equally important if you feel this person isn't right for you, you don't have to go back......you have a choice.

Counselling can be helpful for those experiencing a recent problem where there is a need to make the changes. It gives you the opportunity to talk through your problems, in a supportive and non-judgemental setting to consider your options and find your own answers. Counselling or psychotherapy is not about giving advice. Counselling tends to be more short term, with the option of long term work.

Psychotherapy is helpful for those who have experienced emotional or physical distress early on in life, such as trauma, cruelty and abuse, family members suffering from depression, severe mental health issues or ill health, bereavement and not feeling loved and cared for. What we experience in childhood can effect how we grow up, how we relate to others and ourselves and our mental health. It is more helpful for clients to have psychotherapy long term.
My aim is for us to explore the background into your thoughts and feelings, so that you are able to gain an understanding of what might be affecting you now or from your past. This awareness allows you to talk about your feelings attached to any concerns or painful events and creates the chance to choose a different way of being and how to see things in the future. It is never too late to have counselling or psychotherapy, no matter how old you are or when the problems started.....counselling and psychotherapy can help you

Training, qualifications & experience

Foundation Degree in Counselling from University of Greenwich (BACP accredited degree). Qualified in 2011.
NCFE Level 1 Certificate in Interpersonal Skills,
NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills,
NCFE Level 3 Certificate in Counselling and Theory.

As well as my private practice I have been a volunteer senior counsellor for the Carers Support Service, offering counselling and psychotherapy to those caring for a loved one. Being a carer can evoke painful and shameful feelings towards themselves and the 'cared for', and at times put the carer under considerable stress. I provided a supportive and non-judgemental relationship where these 'painful' thoughts and feelings can be shared without criticism.

Counsellors and psychotherapists never stop learning even they have qualified, this is to ensure we keep up to date with the latest training and to learn new skills to help our clients. It is an ethical and professional requirement.
As part of my professional and personal development I attended workshops and further training courses on Trauma and Recovery, Severe and Complex Trauma, Trauma in Children, Working with Image, Attachment, Attachment Disorder, Body Modification, Body Dysmorphic Disorder Issues, Dreams, Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups, Addictions, Self harm, Suicide, Affairs and Betrayal, Our Relationship with Food, Narcissism and Maternal Distress.

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.
