Elli Keavey Dip. TA Counselling and Psychotherapy MBACP (Accred)
In response to the COVID 19 situation, I am currently offering sessions remotely via Zoom or WhatsApp video or phone call. Life can feel stressful, challenging, and unfulfilling and this can deeply affect our emotional and physical well being. We can feel sad, angry, anxious and scared in a way that makes life and relationships seem difficult or impossible. It can be helpful then to seek support. I provide a safe, confidential, accepting space for you to explore your problems to allow you to make changes, heal old wounds, make peace with the past, accept and embrace who you are.
I am a fully accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with the BACP and have successfully completed four years training in Transactional Analysis and Integrative Psychotherapy. I have a number of years experience in working effectively with men and women, young adults and am interested in working with couples and groups.
I can help you make sense of and make changes of symptoms of;
Anxiety, panic attacks, compulsive obsessive thoughts
trauma, post traumatic stress disorder
bereavement, loss, recovering from a failed relationship
low mood, depression, low self esteem and self confidence
self harm, eating disorders and suicidal feelings
recovering from physical and mental abuse
I struggled with depression and anxiety and sought help from a therapist. For me this was a powerful life changing experience that enabled me to develop my self awareness, improve my relationships and allowed me to embrace who I am.
Making that first contact can be difficult, so to help I offer a free 20 minute consultation for us to meet with no obligation. Contact me by phone, text or email and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I can offer both daytime and evening appointments.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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
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).
