Hi my name is Elise, welcome to my profile. I am a fully qualified counsellor and a individual member of the BACP.
Starting counselling can be quite daunting, but this is the first step. To get started please feel free to call or email me to arrange an initial session. We can talk about what you would like to get out of counselling. The most important thing is to feel comfortable with your counsellor, enabling the trust to build between yourselves, forming a strong working relationship. Once you are happy with this we can then set up a second session.
Mental health issues can have a profound impact on us, affecting our behaviour, thoughts and feelings. We all have mental health,which affects our daily life and causes worry. It is essential to find the correct support and professional guidance,finding what works best for you.
I offer my clients the Person-Centred approach, which is a popular approach to therapy in the UK today, it is known as “Client Centred.” This is because as PCC counsellors, we believe that by being offered the right conditions, a human being can change and grow in confidence positively. Therefore this therapy offers a non-directive and non-intrustructive approach. No advice is given and the client finds their answers and solutions from within, with the help and skills of my-self. This builds a safe, confidential and therapeutic relationship between my-self and my clients. I aim to have a deep understanding of every client, being accepting of them and their issues, offering them no judgement and genuineness at all times.

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.
