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 7 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)
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.
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.
