L. Elle Hull
Hi, I'm Elle, and I'm a registered counsellor in London. I offer one-to-one counselling on a short or long term basis and work with a variety of 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.

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.

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).

Concessions offered for
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.
