About me

Finding the right counsellor for you is not only an important part but it's you taking your first step to start your beautiful journey, so I just want to say thank you for your interest!

My name is Elina and I am a passionate therapist that promotes talking therapy as a great benefit to anyones life. I will actively listen and help you work towards your goals and feel better, whilst I provide a safe, confidential and professional environment. My priority is for you to step into your whole self and comfortably talk at your own pace on what matters to you and any difficulties you are facing. You can comfortably cry in one moment, reflect and see joy in another.

Talk about personal matters that may revolve around; stress, self-worth, confidence, anxiety, low mood, relationships, work, studying, anger, depression, childhood or talk about traumatic issues that relate to physical, financial, psychological or sexual abuse. I also support individuals with exploring underlying causes, finding coping strategies, coming to terms with events and challenging unhelpful thoughts. Utilise a variety of skills and approaches to help maximise change and help you to manage better. I aim to empower individuals to feel like they are actually living, not just existing.

Working within the NHS and other well known organisations over the years has given me the advantage of developing more skills and knowledge to support individuals with mental health and further health issues. Talking to a qualified professional can help you gain insight, clarity and a greater understanding of yourself and that is what I aim to do.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
