About Elle

Is work massively stressing you out? Are tensions at home at an all time high? Is the pandemic hitting you hard and you're overwhelmed and don't know how to cope? I hear you. 
Hi, my name is Elle, an experienced integrative counsellor who has experienced stresses like these before too. Counselling empowered me to work through what life throws my way. It can help you too. 
I can help you work through what is distressing you and find new ways to manage stress.
When you are stressed, it is often because you feel disempowered by someone or something in your life. You may feel misunderstood or that no one is even listening to you, you may feel confused and alone and no idea where to turn. It adds up and creates tremendous stress that overpowers you. Together we can explore what is happening in your life, reflect on how it is affecting you and consider what steps you can take to effect change and growth for the better.
My aim is to support and empower your process.
There is great power and healing in being heard and understood. I aim to provide you the space to experience being fully listened to and accepted in a way that is empathetic and understanding. This gives you the safety and freedom to effectively sort through what is distressing you. 
I'm here for you.
You don't have to go through this alone. I provide video counselling online Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Daytime appointments are available all three days with a few evening appointments available Wednesday evenings. Please do not hesitate to book an initial appointment to discuss your counselling needs. I'm here for you.

Get to Know Elle

Why did you choose to become a therapist?

Personal and professional experience led me to become a therapist. Professionally, I previously worked in family law; an area of law where people are often highly stressed and experiencing a wide variety of emotions. I found listening to clients' distress an important aspect of that work; an attitude not often shared with other family lawyers. I began to feel that I could better help people as a counsellor than as a lawyer. Personally, I have had my own life experiences with depression, anxiety, stress, burnout, eating disorders, bereavement, grief, loss. Counselling has helped me process what I've experienced and learn new ways to look at things, manage emotions and change behaviour. This life experience has led me to the passion to help others through their own process to find growth, healing and happiness.

Why do you think integrative therapy is the most effective form of therapy?

There are so many interesting ideas and methods and they all have merit. It's rare that one type of therapy fits everyone and/or every situation. Integrative therapy enables me to combine ideas and methods that consider what will work best for the client. This allows me to tailor the counselling to the client's needs.

How would you describe your therapy session & approach?

I am a friendly and open person with a sincere desire to help. In an initial session, we discuss your counselling needs and what you would like to achieve through counselling. I take some details and together we consider the best way forward for you. Subsequent sessions will involve exploring what is happening in your life, gaining insight into matters and what actions you can take that may help you manage, cope, even resolve the issues arising. This tends to be an organic process that evolves as we work together. I am client focused and believe you know yourself best, at all times respecting your free will to make your own choices.
