Ella Tekdag (PGDip, MBACP), Counselling, Psychotherapy, Central London
My name is Ella and I work as a counselling therapist in London. I imagine you may be reading this because you or someone you know needs help understanding or coping with something that is going on right now.
Whether you are facing a crisis, grief, low confidence, lack of direction, anxiety, social anxiety, stress, relationship issues, family issues, panic attacks, agoraphobia, feeling sad or depression, I can help. Or if you haven’t identified your issue, and are just struggling to find peace in an increasingly demanding world, I am able to offer a quiet and confidential space to explore this together.
Getting started: feel free to call or email me to set up an initial session. In the initial session we can talk about what you would like to get out of counselling. If you're happy to continue we can then arrange to see each other weekly or fortnightly.
During these unprecedented times, it's very important to connect and have someone to talk to. I am offering sessions online via WhatsApp, FaceTime and Zoom.
Training, qualifications & experience
I work with individuals providing short & long term counselling. I specialise in Psychosynthesis counselling but consider a variety of models within my therapy work including psychodynamics, person-centred therapy, gestalt & mindfulness. I tailor my approach to work with what my clients need at the time.
I understand the pressures and demands that can come with work and home life. Having spent 18 years working in the financial sector, I can help clients who are feeling overwhelmed with anxiety, stress, relationship issues, depression, panic attacks, low self-esteem, and perhaps lack a sense of meaning and purpose in their life.
I am also familiar with the pressures and anxieties young people face today, particularly in a world increasingly lead by social media. I have experience in helping clients navigate through this and find their self-worth and self-esteem.
I also speak fluent Turkish.
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.
Accredited register membership

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).
