Please contact Ellen for session rate.
An initial meeting is our first opportunity to discuss what has been troubling you and how these difficulties are affecting you. This meeting will also give you an opportunity to decide whether you feel that a therapeutic approach may be helpful for you to manage or overcome your difficulties.
I am able to undertake both short and long term counselling and CBT dependent on each individual's needs. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and I adhere to their codes of ethics.
If you would like to find out more information or would like to make an appointment to see me please contact me by telephone or email.
