Elpis Counselling

View profile

I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist with a wide knowledge of counselling, psychotherapy and psychotherapeutic environments. I am able to support and help anyone who has any form of emotional or mental health issue.

I offer safe, emphatic, confidential and boundaried support, able to help in a wide range of ways through having over 13 years of experience helping people move forward in their lives.

Currently I am working for a hospice offering counselling and psychotherapy to people with life limiting illness or people who have recently or are likely to be bereaved in the near future.

I will be leaving my post at the hospice in December as I have decided to focus on private work.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been working in the field of mental health for 13 years, initially as a support worker in a therapeutic community, then I started four years of training and started working as a trainee psychotherapist ten years ago. I qualified as a psychotherapist in 2009 and I have over 3000 hours of post qualification experience. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their code of ethics.

I have worked with clients experiencing issues such as self harm, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, addictions, abuse, depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, grief/loss and trauma. I have also worked in both private practice and residential settings with people who have been diagnosed with a personality disorder or have a dual diagnosis. Previously I have taught counselling skills to level 3 & 4 counselling students. I have worked in Birmingham, London, Lincoln, Liverpool, Thailand and now Worcester and Bromsgrove.
