I am a fully Accredited Member of The Counselling Society and a full Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, (B.A.C.P.) working towards Accreditation. I am bound by their Ethical Frameworks for Good Practice in both Counselling and Psychotherapy. I provide Integrative counselling combining Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Humanistic, Transactional Analysis (TA) approaches and Solution Focused therapies. Counselling and psychotherapy can begin a journey of exploration for many people which can assist them significantly in moving themselves forwards in life. The more information they possess about themselves and their issues the greater their insight to effect positive behavioural change.
Counselling sessions offer dedicated time and a safe environment for individuals’ to consider all options open to them. This in turn allows them to feel empowered to make decisions and obtain a greater clarity in their life at times when they need this most.

Not everyone seeking counselling is looking to resolve issues, or face up to difficult situations, some people wish to embark upon personal development.
These sessions follow the lines more of life coaching which allows individuals’ time and space to evaluate their life and discuss future goals and ambitions and the ways in which they can be achieved.
My fees structure is as follows
- £15.00 for a 30 minute session (introductory session to counselling or useful for in between sessions to support overall therapy program if required).
- £30.00 for a 60 minute session (including couple counselling).
- £45.00 for a 90 minute session.
- The initial consultation allows any therapy to be scoped and structured accordingly and is an opportunity for both client and therapist to discuss opportunities of working together.
- Concessionary rates can be discussed at time of contact. Rates are reduced for students in training, senior citizens, individuals’ on low income and for young children and adolescents.
- There will be a cancellation charge should any appointments be cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.
- Should individual’s require more specialist assistance referrals to an appropriate health professional can be made.
I first used Elaine when I was a counsellor in training and went on to call upon her when my personal circumstances changed dramatically and I was finding it difficult to cope with so many negative emotions. Elaine supported me through many emotions and tears aplenty without making judgments about me, my responses and actions. I would definitely visit her again if I needed to. She knows my history now so it would make sense.
