Elena Sorsby BA(Hons), MBACP (Reg)
Even at less stressful times, powerful feelings like anxiety, grief, emptiness and anger can sometimes dominate our lives and wear us down.
Speaking with a non-judgemental counsellor, in a confidential, safe space, will help you to have more clarity, unlock your inner resources to cope with the challenges that you face, no matter how big or small you feel they are, to find solutions, and to regain contentment.
Under normal circumstances I meet my clients face-to-face for 50 minutes counselling sessions. Presently I offer counselling sessions using the secure Zoom platform, or on the phone.
I am an integrative therapist, which means I’m trained in a wide range of counselling methodologies and carefully select those that I believe will work best for you. Over the years, I have been helping adults, young people and elderly clients facing challenges as diverse as anxiety, disability, interpersonal relationship issues, trauma, depression and bereavement.
The journey to regaining contentment may feel daunting, but I believe with some help anyone can achieve this. My job satisfaction is to see people empowered to make positive changes in their lives and to grow personally and emotionally. If you feel you are ready, please contact me and we can set up a short introductory telephone session, to help you decide if I might be the right therapist for you. I will reply within 24 hours.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
