Hello, my name is Eve. I offer counselling to adults, couples and young people aged 11 and over.
Contacting a counsellor can feel daunting and you may feel unsure of what to say and what to expect; I will work with you at your pace, there is no right or wrong as it is about you.
I offer online, telephone and face to face sessions (from Humberston, Grimsby).
What is counselling?
Counselling is a unique process and the definition may vary from each individual perspective. I like to see counselling as a personal journey whereby a person is able to feel safe, supported and heard with the empathy and guidance of a qualified therapist who is able to walk beside them, enabling reflection, healing, overcoming and working towards goals. I respect that each person needs to find the right therapist for them with whom they can build a trusting therapeutic relationship.
Every person is unique and therefore I aim to adapt and fit each client and their needs.
What does a counsellor do?
I always work with the individual at the centre of the session; I do not advise, rather I facilitate the client in finding their own answers in a calm and safe space. My role is to walk alongside you, I hope to always offer an empathic and non judgmental space for each person to explore.
I have experience in working with a variety of issues; I am a person-centred counsellor who practices an integrative approach, this means that talking therapy is offered and depending on each individual- other models of therapy may be incorporated such as CBT, Transactional Analysis and Inner Child Therapy. I only ever work at the client's pace and offer tools which they may or may not feel is right for them.
While I am sharing this information in order to give insight into myself and my role, I do not wish to overwhelm you; the most important aspect of any therapy is the counselling relationship and your needs.
I adhere to the BACP ethical framework. Ethical and moral practice is at the centre of my profession and the core of my being. .
Is therapy right for me?
You may wish to explore a specific issue or it may be a variety of issues, events and feelings; both past and present. You may not know exactly what you want to share yet. There is no expectation, I am here to support you and help you in working towards your goals.
Therapy for Young People and Teens:
I have worked with young people (11+) for several years now, and I value this role as it is an honour to be able to share in the journey of a growing individual. As a parent you may or may not be familiar with therapy and you may be un-sure of what to expect. For the initial session you as a parent/care-giver may wish to attend without your child, this is called an assesment and it allows me to gain insight and gives you a chance to share your expectations and ask any questions. Alternatively you may wish to attend with your child or your child may wish to attend on their own. Going forward sessions will usually be between the young person and myself.
Therapy for Couples:
Couple therapy can be for many different reasons, there may be difficulties and issues either past or present that may benefit from exploration and guidance in a safe, therapeutic space or perhaps communication is an issue which you feel you would like to work on. I work in a similar way as described above when working with clients; and I respect that each individual and each relationship is unique.

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

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).

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
It is sometimes difficult to name what it is that is bothering us, sometimes it can be a feeling or certain behaviours or lack of enthusiasm or control. Although I work with all the issues listed above, it is not necessary that you come able to name the issue you would like support with. I am here to help facilitate your understanding of self and to empathise and walk alongside you on your journey of healing and discovery.
