I specialise in Anxiety reduction, so whether you want help with Anxiety, Panic Attacks, a Phobia, OCD , or GAD I'd be happy to hear from you.
If your anxiety levels are very high, we'll usually work to bring it down first, then, once you're less stressed out, we'll work on achieving your goals. If you want to take back control and work in a tailored way to suit your personality, you are welcome to a free 30 minute consultation so we can discuss your needs & how I work. I use Counselling, Psychotherapy, EMDR, NLP, ERP, CBT and Hypnotherapy approaches to suit you. Some clients only need 6 sessions, to learn techniques to control anxiety or panic attacks, while others may stay on to resolve the underlying cause/s once they're feeling better.

Sometimes, children and young people need a little extra support to guide them through difficult times in their lives. They may be encountering challenges and would benefit from talking in a safe and comfortable environment to explore feelings and worries. I offer a non judgemental counselling service in a warm & friendly atmosphere suited to young people. I have been counselling children & young people for 10 years. Children can relate to me and I strive to do my best for them. I’m able to adapt my counselling style to suit clients' individual needs (eg I use play & art when working with young children to support them effectively)

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.

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.

Do you feel overwhelmed, unsafe and lonely? Are you finding elements of your life a struggle and don't know where to turn? Can you no longer see the wood for the trees and have lost direction? Many people lose touch with the person they are supposed to be for many reasons and seek to find their true selves again but may just need a helping hand and support along the way. Counselling can be the first step back to removing the barriers which have kept you lost and help you back on the path you were intended to follow.

I specialise in working with clients facing Stress and Anxiety in their lives. Life can be unpredictable and overwhelming. Anxiety is actually an entirely natural and healthy response to feeling threatened or in danger, a mechanism designed to keep us safe. However, problems can arise when our anxiety response becomes ‘unhealthy’, in some cases it can begin to negatively impact our lives and this is when we may require additional support.

Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
