About me

Would you like to experience more ease and calm in your life? Would you like to access more of your life-force energy and creativity?  Do you simply need someone to talk to?

Navigating life can sometimes feel like a challenging and lonely task.  My priority is offering you a safe, confidential, non-judgemental place to pause, take a deep breath and begin to make some sense of what’s going on. Being listened to, and truly seen and heard by someone who cares is a powerful healing experience. From this place, you’ll feel empowered to discover your own inner resources for navigating life.

My qualities as a counsellor include warmth and compassion, but also an ability to gently challenge you when appropriate. I am approachable and genuine, and strive to empower you to flourish in your life. I have a great deal of experience working with anxiety and other difficult emotional states. My work is informed by the important insights of neuroscience into trauma and its effects on the nervous system. I work with clients to find practical tools such as EFT, breath-work, felt sense, mindfulness, and inner child work. These techniques calm the nervous system which may have been running on high alert and causing all manner of symptoms such as anxiety, insomnia, and a sense of being overwhelmed.

What to expect in your first session

The first 50-minute no-obligation session is there for you to ask questions and for me to take your history. This allows you to get a sense of whether you feel you could work with me, and for us to decide whether we are the right fit.

Getting started

Please call me on 07922 629546 or email at elina.mocane@gmail.com to arrange the first session.  If I am unable to answer your call, I will get back to you as soon as I can.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained in Transpersonal Integrative psychotherapy, an approach that seeks to integrate Western and Eastern psychologies. It brings together various therapeutic modalities to best suit the unique circumstances of each client and fosters the innate human drive to achieve our full potential. 

My area of interest, both personally and professionally, is the human relationship with nature. This has led me to undertake research focusing on the psychological aspects of our sense of connection with nature, and the impact it has on our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. The findings of this research inform and enrich my work with clients. 

My passion is to find simple and practical ways to help clients manage their day-to-day emotional states, as I believe this builds a strong basis for a fulfilling life. It is my hope that through our work together you will experience more peace, vitality and empowerment in your life.

Training and qualifications:

  • Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy, the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, London
  • ​M.A. in Transpersonal Counselling & Psychotherapy, University of Northampton
  • I am a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

Member organisations

BACP

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.
