Sometimes we all need additional support to navigate difficult times and making a decision to seek help for our personal problems can be daunting. I believe in creating a safe space to work together, where you are the expert in your own experiences and I have the experience and expertise in psychological theories and techniques. I believe that by bringing together this expertise we can work together to enable you to achieve your unique personal goals. Some of the relationship problems I work with include communication issues, affairs and betrayals, family issues, parenting issues, separation and divorce.

We are all able to agree that our physical health is variable, but it may be much harder to admit that our psychological health is in constant flux. All too often, we find ourselves buying into the idea of the "stiff upper lip": that "mental health issues" affect only other people - and "weak people", at that! It can be very daunting, therefore, to recognise that we need help and then to take steps to find a professional who will help things improve. I understand those concerns, because I've been there: and I also have experience of the positive effects of psychotherapy - from both sides of the consulting-room!

Hi there, my name is Ellie and I am a Counsellor specializing in trauma and the common coping skills that develop from it's effects. These include the areas of disordered eating, body image issues (including body dysmorphia), addiction (self-medicating to avoid the effects of trauma), being drawn to abusive relationships and patterns of becoming stuck and paralyzed in these damaging dynamics. The heart of my therapeutic work is to help clients discover their authentic self and to gently dis-engage from painful old beliefs they may have internalized from complex and overwhelming environments.

Are you feeling anxious, depressed or stressed? Have you suffered relationship breakdown, loss or bereavement? Do you have an addiction or patterns of behaviour such as anger, fear, low self-esteem or shyness, that are affecting your happiness and relationships? Are you worrying about the future, or something in the past? Are you struggling at work or home, with family, colleagues or friends? Do you feel alone, unable to talk about how you are feeling? Do you want to talk to someone who is caring, supportive and confidential, who will listen without judgement, helping you gain understanding and find a way through your problems?

At the core of what I offer is building a trusting, non judgmental relationship so that you can feel safe enough to explore deeper feelings, and very importantly find your own, sustainable solutions or sometimes just find your way of managing and accepting certain difficulties. I also have many years experience of working with counselling students.

Counselling is the opportunity for you to openly talk about your worries, thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential environment allowing you to gain your own understanding of your process. My therapeutic approach is Person-Centred, which is non-directive and led by the client, exploring own thoughts, emotions and behaviours with no judgement ending with you gaining more effective coping strategies and a deeper understanding of yourself. My approach will not be to advise, but to encourage you to talk and explore at depth. I truly believe you are the expert in your own life and I will support you in this journey of discovery.

Life can sometimes be difficult and we may find ourselves struggling and feeling anxious, depressed and unconfident. We may find ourselves battling with the feelings evoked by loss, due to bereavement, relationship breakdown or even the children leaving home. Counselling is not a magic cure, but talking to an empathic, skilled therapist can help; fostering both the processing of difficult feelings and resilience to better deal with what life throws at us, enabling us to move forward. The effect of just being listened to by those who have hitherto struggled to be heard can be both powerful and empowering.

A warm, relational approach is the foundation of my work with children, young people and their parents. As an Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, I aim to enable each person to communicate and feel understood from the depth of their experience. This means finding each person's unique ways of expressing themselves, and tailoring my technique to meet them "where they're at". I create a safe space so that children and young people are able to bring their most painful feelings and thoughts out into the room with me. At the same time, humour and fun are important elements of my work.

Or do you find yourself feeling lost or empty, or caught up in a cycle of thinking or behaving that is affecting your emotional well being or making life, work or relationships difficult? Have you and your partner got into stuck ways of relating? Is this leaving you feeling hurt, sad or lonely? Are you hurting the ones you love?

Confronting these feelings and seeking therapy can feel like a huge step to take, but is the start of recovery. I am here to give you the space and time to unburden, and work through any issues at your own pace in a safe, comfortable, confidential and non-judgemental space.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in CO1 are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in CO1 then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in CO1, or Child Psychologists in CO1.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like CO1 psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in CO1 specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
