Jan Ellis Reg MBACP. Counselling Diploma and Cert in Relationship Counselling.
I offer both Individual and Relationship Counselling to adults over 18 years old.
I’m an Integrative Counsellor, using various therapies tailored to suit your specific needs; including Person Centred, Emotionally Focused, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)
Life can be complex and bring different challenges which can affect many areas of our lives.
I am extremely passionate in helping you to deal with these challenges in order that you can lead a happier, more enjoyable life.
Thoughts and feelings have a real affect on ourselves, our behaviour and how we react and cope in all areas of our lives. I feel it is important to work through any challenges / issues so we can move on and be happy both within ourselves and within our relationships.
I feel that being genuine, open and honest and building a professional relationship of trust with clients is key to successful outcomes for clients.
I am a very dedicated, genuine, professional who focuses on getting the best possible result for all clients.
Looking specifically at ways to work through things with you is something I work hard to achieve with yourself. This way the counselling sessions are realistically going to be more beneficial to yourself.
I realise that you have different priorities at different times so I try to work as flexibly as possible.
I work with a wide range of issues including:
- Addictive issues
- Alcohol /Substance abuse issues
- Life Coaching
- Anger management
- Self-esteem /Confidence issues
- Stress management
- Domestic abuse
- Relationship issues
- Eating disorders
- Transgender issues
- Emotional/Behavioural issues
- Family issues
- Weight loss/weight gain
- Financial issues
- Work related issues

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
