Eleanor Taylor BA, PGCE, Adv Dip Counselling, Adv Dip CBT, NCS Accredited
Life can throw varied challenges our way and Counselling can be a great support in processing emotions and unravelling confused thinking. I know that having a safe, compassionate, non judgemental space to talk things through can be really valuable and I am really passionate at supporting people to feel better in themselves. I strongly believe in empowerment and helping people to become the best they can so they can cope better with whatever comes their way.
About me and my Practice
I’m an Integrative Therapist which means I use different approaches within my Counselling work these include Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Gestalt. I also use some TA and Mindfulness with clients and enjoy being creative and can incorporate art therapy and sand play therapy. My client’s have commented on my warm, empathic style where they feel comfortable to talk about anything without judgement.
I have considerable experience working with young people and adults across a wide range of issues which include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addiction, low self esteem, eating disorders, grief, anger and abuse. I trained to be a Counsellor in a secondary school and then went on to work with adults of all ages as part of a community project. I now work for Circles South East and in private practise.
I am 41 years old and have a family, I love to be in the outdoors, meditate and to travel. I’ve visited a Tibetan Monastery in Kathmandu and am influenced by Buddhism.
