My name is Ella and I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I am seeing clients face-to-face and via Zoom.
Throughout our lives we encounter a range of challenges and experiences that can leave us feeling stuck, depressed, anxious, isolated, or without meaning. My aim is to build a space of trust where you can feel confident in bringing out the parts of yourself that you may have had difficulty sharing before.
When starting on a therapeutic journey the process can feel daunting. You may come to therapy with a certain issue you want to explore, or you may feel your life will be richer with greater understanding. Whatever brings you to therapy, my aim will always be to help you bring about positive, lasting change to your life.
I offer a free initial phone conversation, so please get in contact with any questions you may have about how we can work together.
I look forward to speaking with you
Training, qualifications & experience
For the last 5 years I have supported adults and children in a variety of mental health settings. From those experiences I gained an appreciation for the importance of people feeling listened to, seen, encouraged, and supported. Having trained as an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor at Regent's University of London, I utilise a range of modalities to help you explore issues you might be facing in your life. Some of the issues I have worked with in the past include:
- Childhood trauma
- Relationship issues
I see personal development and continuous training as an important part of practicing ethically. Due to this I have completed additional training in bereavement, suicide, relationships, white fragility, and attachment.
- PgDip in Counselling and Psychotherapy
- Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy
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.

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).
