About me

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.

I offer a FREE 30 minute introductory session. Therapy can be weekly or fortnightly.

Testimonial February 2021: "Elise has been an amazing therapist for me at a moment when I was recovering from a manic episode. She has created since the first day a very safe space for me to express myself and better understand how the mind works, helping me obtain closure with the episode, improve my self esteem and family dynamics, far exceeding my most optimistic expectations! Throughout the therapy I really appreciated her caring and professional approach which has made the therapy extremely effective and pleasant. I highly recommend her to anyone, I think we all need someone like Elise to improve our lives and relationships!"

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) eating disorders and bereavement.

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.
