About me

My name is Ella and I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and Psychosexual and Relationship Psychotherapist, seeing individuals and couples 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.

Relationships can bring great joy and growth to our lives, but there are times when relationships can become a source of pain and frustration. By taking time to listen to our partners and to feel listened to, we can start the process of unpicking the unhelpful patterns we can find ourselves in. People do not enter relationships in isolation from past experiences, so being able to explore each person’s relational template can give the understanding and insight into how to heal and move forward. 

As a Psychosexual Psychotherapist, I specialise in creating a non-judgmental environment for the exploration of sex, sexual concerns, and addressing issues that impact overall relationship and sexual satisfaction. Dedicated to fostering deeper understanding between partners, my approach aims to empower individuals to embrace their sexual selves and cultivate a positive view of their sexuality.

I offer a free 30-min initial session to be able to speak about the things which have brought you to seek therapy and to explore working together.

I look forward to speaking with you

  • Sexual assault and abuse
  • Communication
  • Coming out
  • Conflict

Member organisations

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
