I provide counselling help and support to both adults and young people; a confidential, safe place to talk, to explore your thoughts and emotional reactions to events - past and present. Counselling provides an opportunity to find peace, or perhaps clarity, to understand and potentially make sense of hard to handle feelings such as sadness, guilt, shame, anger or vulnerability; feelings that may be dominating, overwhelming and stopping you moving forward and getting the most out of life.
I run my private therapy practice, Elloe Counselling from home to provide bespoke therapy sessions.
As a professionally qualified experienced counsellor I am here to listen and really hear your story, from your perspective; support you and help you manage the present, reflect on the past and move forward from some of the many debilitating effects of anxiety, depression, grief loss and trauma.
You and your life events are what makes you unique so each session has you at its core, your needs - and each session is structured to help self-discovery and understanding of the person you are and offers a way to move forward with guidance for growth and potentially the opportunity for change and acceptance.
Training, qualifications & experience

Registered / Accredited

National Counselling Society (NCS)
The National Counselling Society
This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.
In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
