A SAFE SPACE..... Hello, and a warm welcome to Elise Whittington Counselling Practice.
My specialist areas of practice are low-self esteem, anxiety, depression and relationships. Have you ever considered trying counselling for PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT? Counselling is often wrongly assumed to be just for help during a trauma or significant life event. It is actually also very helpful for self development, growing self-esteem and self-worth, exploring setting personal boundaries, exploring relationships and how you relate to others in a general sense. These can be explored over 2-3 sessions, so it's short term and in-expensive. Counselling can help you make better choices going forward and help you to feel better about yourself.
Making the decision to begin therapy can be a big step especially as everyone is under increasing financial pressure at this difficult and uncertain time. I passionately believe in the worth of counselling and have therefore reduced my fees to just £35 per hour for individual online therapy or £55 for online couples therapy to ensure that more people can access the help they need. I am also offering a FREE 30 minute introductory session. Therapy can be weekly or fortnightly.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BA (Hons.First) degree in counselling and an FDA Foundation degree in Integrated Humanistic Counselling from The University of Greenwich.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP)
I have 10 years experience of counselling for a wide range of issues. I am particularly experienced in anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, low self worth, relationship issues (including narcissistic relationships and abuse) and bereavement.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
