My areas of specialist training are in childhood trauma, childhood sexual abuse , sexual violence , eating disorders, personality disorders and abusive relationships.
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.

I have worked in a number of areas, with detailed experience of bereavement, depression, physical and substance abuse and PTSD.
Have you ever heard; I know what you're feeling! You're doing things wrong! You're making a fuss of nothing! You should try this! Someone else is worse off......sound familiar? With the growing stresses of modern life it's often difficult to know who you can turn to in a time of self need, without any judgement. That is where I come in. I provide a safe and secure environment for you to discuss your thoughts and feelings whilst reflecting upon where you are and where you want to be. I work integratively, meaning I take a number of different counselling theories and practices and combine them into the best therapy plan for you.

Thank you for visiting my profile, navigating life can sometimes feel overwhelming. You may be struggling with feeling anxious or depressed. Maybe you struggle to prioritise yourself, always taking care of others needs ahead of your own, leaving you running on empty. Perhaps you feel overly responsible for others, always trying to fix their problems. Maybe past experiences have left you feeling ashamed, empty and unsure of who you are. Sometimes we need help to work through life’s challenges. I work with adults individually gently helping them to make sense of their difficulties and find a way forwards.

Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.

If you're looking for a Colchester domestic abuse or domestic violence counsellor, these professionals provide domestic abuse therapy and counselling in Colchester.
