Michelle Ellis. FDA Warwick University BACP Registered
Life’s path isn’t always easy to walk and we can come across some rocky roads that disrupt our emotional and physical being causing an imbalance.
The current change in the world is just one factor that may be creating, adding or altering mental states and relationships of many kinds, including friends, family, home and work life to name but a few.
I am a qualified psychotherapist and it’s my skill to help you find a way forward with your thoughts and feelings. If Counselling is new to you, you may be wondering what to expect and how it works, so I’ve put together a little bit about my story.
I initially entered therapy as a client, feeling stuck, grief stricken and not being able to see the wood for the trees. I felt my therapy time was my hour of freedom - to speak the unspeakable, and face the unfaceable. It was in this space I was truly allowed to show and feel my emotions; it's where I learned how to be true to myself.
The whole counselling journey intrigued me. I found the changes that occurred by doing this work added significant value to my life and it’s what inspired me to further study and gain my degree. We all have the potential to be more conscious of our human mind and initiate change around our thoughts and behaviours.
In our lives we will, more than likely, come across some challenges and wonder
'what ,when ,how, why?'
Emotional challenges can be overwhelming and it's not unusual to become lost and lose a sense of self. It's a little bit like being in the fog; it can be hard to see where the road is. Therapy sessions can help lift this fog to travelling a clearer path.
I believe physical illness can also occur due to unprocessed trauma. It's important these thoughts and feelings are talked about and not left unspoken to manifest physically.
Our sessions with be held in a safe and confidential space where I will listen empathically ,without judgement , and help support you in your personal journey . It is here you will learn to make your own discoveries for a deeper level of self awareness and work on your desired outcome.
People only seriously consider change when they feel accepted for exactly who they are

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.
