Are you struggling with a difficulty in your life and need some help? Would you like to improve your relationships? Do you want to talk to someone who will listen without judgment?
Hello. I’m Emma-Jane and I run Elysium Counselling Services in Wolverhampton where I provide Person Centred Counselling to individuals in a contemporary and relaxed setting. I offer a space to talk so that you can work through your difficulties in complete confidence.
My counselling experience is diverse and includes people who have problems with anxiety, depression, feeling sad, relationship difficulties and family issues including separation and divorce as well as affairs and betrayal, anger, stress, low self esteem and low self confidence. I have also helped people with the emotional trauma of sexual and physical abuse as well as bereavement, trauma and loss.
I’m passionate about my work and the long term benefits of ‘talking therapies’ and am committed to making a difference to my clients’ lives.
I know from personal experience that the world can be a pretty stressful place and that our daily lives can drain us emotionally and physically as we attempt to juggle our work and personal lives. It’s this personal experience, combined with my training, which makes me the counsellor I am which is: down to earth, eclectic and committed.
I’m professionally qualified and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am governed by their professional Code of Practice and Ethical Framework.
I’m a firm believer in working with the ‘person’ and not the ‘label’ and this lays the foundation for the way I work.
Whatever the issue I am dedicated to providing counselling in a straightforward, confidential and relaxed setting.
If you would like an informal chat about any issue you may be facing, family issues causing pressures at home or at work then please pick up the phone, or drop me an email or text and we can talk about how I can help you. I promise you listening ears, empathic understanding and absolute confidentiality!
Training, qualifications & experience
I love what I do. I have seen how counselling can improve people’s self confidence and self worth as well as help to deal with traumatic issues that have affected their lives. I feel proud to dedicate my working life to a profession that is a powerful force for personal growth and social change.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Therapy works best if you can commit to weekly sessions and so it's important to try and attend your counselling sessions each week to ensure that you get the most out of our time together.
We will organise a mutually agreeable 50 minute session at the same time each week.
Sessions last 50 minutes and cost from £50 payable by cash or card.
Location and what to expect
Sessions are held in my comfortable home consulting room in a Victorian semi detached house, which is a relaxing and private space for you to explore whatever brings you to therapy. This is situated near Tettenhall in Wolverhampton (postcode WV6) on the A41, close to the M54/M6 and within easy reach of all areas in Wolverhampton including Codsall, Albrighton, Shifnal,Telford, Bridgnorth, Dudley, West Bromwich and Walsall.
The first step is to contact me to arrange a consultation. I generally recommend three consultations because I have found from experience that one consultation does not provide the amount of time needed to fully understand an individuals life experiences.
