About me

A SAFE SPACE..... Hello, and a warm welcome to Elise Whittington Counselling.

Why is it always about mum? Have you always had a difficult relationship with your mother, never felt good enough, have low self-esteem, feel unsure of yourself and your relationships? The deep wounds of maternal narcissism can stay with us long into adulthood. I specialise in working within this issue and together we can explore the wounds and healing needs of your lost inner child.

I specialise also in working with both acute and generalised anxiety and low self-worth.  I will always explore these with you at your own pace in our sessions together.

If you would like to talk for free for 30 minutes to see if some therapy sessions would help you, please contact me at whittingtonelise2@gmail.com or via the contact page on my website at www.elisewhittingtoncounselling.com

I offer 60 minute sessions through online counselling video platform Zoom or by telephone.  Online counselling has many benefits including increased flexibility as there is no time consuming and costly travel, being able to have your therapy in your work lunchtime, having the security of your own chosen surroundings, even from your car and of course eliminating the risk that someone you know may see you attending your session. At the present time, it also eliminates the need to wear masks. Online counselling via a video platform is now an established way of receiving therapy which is proven to be just as effective as in person therapy.

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, low self-esteem, low self worth and relationship issues (especially narcissistic relationships).

Member organisations


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.
