About me

Hi, I'm Ellie and I am a child and adolescent counsellor and psychotherapist. I am passionate about helping children and young people experience emotional wellbeing through the therapeutic process. I believe the foundation for this is building a trusting therapeutic relationship which helps to promote growth and empowerment. 

My approach is to create a safe space to help my clients work through their difficulties. I am aware that children and young people use different forms of expression to communicate, so I encourage creativity through different therapeutic approaches such as play and creative-art, as well as talking. I work in an integrative way which means I draw on many different therapeutic theories and practices to best meet the needs of my clients.

Before I begin working working with your child, I will invite you to have a confidential and supportive chat with me to gain a better understanding of your child's difficulties. As the child's parent you are the expert and can offer valuable insights. As a parent it can be difficult to see your child struggling and I am here to help.

I work with children and young people aged 4-25.

I am able to offer sessions face-to-face or online.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
