L. Elle Hull
As a result of the Covid-19 virus, I am suspending all face-to-face sessions with clients for the foreseeable future. However, I do offer sessions online via Zoom video conferencing and will continue to work in this manner to ensure you are able to access the counselling help you need. I have also reduced my rates. Please see below for further information.
Hi, I'm Elle, and I'm a registered counsellor in central London. I offer one-to-one counselling on a short or long term basis. I work with a variety of issues, however I have a special interest in working with people in mid-life and older who are working to recover from eating/food issues.
I provide a safe confidential environment where you can explore what distresses you. The counselling alliance between us provides the foundation in which you can experience being accepted, heard and understood without judgement. My aim is to facilitate healing and growth through this alliance so you may live your life to its fullest potential.
I have clinical experience working with a variety of issues including specialist experience working with people recovering from alcohol, substance and food misuse.
- LGBTQ+ aware/friendly (my personal pronouns – she/her)
- BDSM/kink aware/friendly
- Polyamorous aware/friendly
- Interfaith aware/friendly
- I embrace equality, diversity and inclusion
I work integratively, which means I incorporate two or more psychological theories and techniques in the way I practice. This enables me to tailor the counselling to the client.
My philosophical approach to counselling is humanistic. In simple terms, this means I believe the client knows themselves best, has free will to make their own choices, and is responsible for those choices.
My work with clients develops organically from what arises moment to moment in sessions and tends to follow the three stages of helping namely exploration, insight and action.

24 hours notice is required when cancelling. Less than 24 hours notice and the session fee is non-refundable.
Upon enquiry, we will arrange a mutually convenient appointment for an initial consultation. This is also referred to as an assessment. During this session, we will discuss your needs, any questions you may have and what you wish to accomplish in counselling. This will help me determine how I can best help you and help you decide if counselling with me is right for you. Assessment is usually carried out in one session but sometimes can take two sessions
Following assessment, if you wish to engage me as your counsellor, we will then agree a regular meeting time and number of sessions. During the course of working together, I will regularly review your progress with you.
