When I started with Eleanor, I thought I knew why I wanted to start therapy. But in fact Eleanor helped me find out so much more than the reasons I had originally thought about. I felt as if I could open up to her in a way that I hadn’t before and she helped me explore some of my deepest inner feelings without being invasive or me feeling timid. I will take what we spoke about into my future and the rest of my life, my experience with Eleanor has been one of the most challenging but most rewarding things in my life and I thank her endlessly for it.
When I came to Eleanor for help, I had been through a very difficult ordeal. Eleanor helped me heal emotionally and also guided me to reconnect with my body. I was hurt and unaware of the real extent of my pain. She taught me to be kind and compassionate with myself and to take care of the little child in me. She also shed light on the relationship between my emotional health and physical health and until today I apply a lot of what I’ve learnt with her.
It took me a long time to finally decide to try counselling after thinking about it for years. Looking back I wished I’d done it earlier. I was really nervous about being judged and finding out that my problems were too big… I was scared of what I might discover! Seeing Eleanor, was a powerfully reassuring experience. She was my therapist for over a year and at times it was difficult for me, but she was an anchor for me during the tough times. What is great now, is that I can still remember the things she told me and they continue to help me even today.
I went to see Eleanor once a week for several months and, by the end of that time, I had made some big decisions and started to view some of my issues in a different light. I used to look forward to my sessions – I cried, I laughed and I always went out the door with something new to think about. Eleanor gently coaxed me to challenge my understanding of past situations when she thought it necessary causing me to reevaluate my reactions to certain events and look at some hidden feelings that I had spent a lot of time sweeping under the carpet. She was also a sympathetic and entirely non-judgmental listener and I felt very comfortable talking to her. I found counselling to be a genuinely valuable and oddly enjoyable experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Eleanor to anyone in need of some support and a fresh look at their life.
This was my first experience of counselling, I went into it without any set aims or expectations, and overall it has had a very positive and also formative effect on me. Having a space and time where I had the freedom and security to unload was incredibly important and all credit goes to Eleanor for creating that space. Eleanor always tried to understand my point of view but she also challenged me where I needed a different perspective, which in my own case was important.

If you are feeling unsure about the idea of therapy then you are not alone.
Most people are wary, not sure what to expect or fear it might not work.
Below are a few short answers to some common queries and you can read more at the FAQs
Do you have a specific issue you want to address? Or are you suffering from anxiety and can’t seem to shake it?Maybe you have some good days, but then very quickly you feel bad again?Whatever the reason, getting in touch is a way of clarifying what you need to do next. You will get a new perspective on your life and make choices that are right for you.
Psychotherapy works because it gives you the opportunity to explore difficult feelings within a safe and confidential space. Therapy helps you join the dots. When you understand why you feel the way you do, you can start to make choices that change the situation in a way that last more than a few days or weeks. Even life long problems can be resolved by talking them through in therapy.
There are lots of ways we can work together. I am an integrative psychotherapist, meaning the therapy I provide is one of the most effective methods available. Never applying a ‘One-size-fits-all’ theory, I listen to your unique perspective. I don’t assume I know how you feel and I try to encourage you to express yourself in your own words. My aim is to help you feel more confident about who you are.
Many of us have moments of self-doubt. Anxiety and stress are normal part of life. But there can be times when we feel like we’ve hit a brick wall.
This doesn’t have to be an all bad experience, this can actually be a great opportunity to re-evaluate our lives, our purposes and build new life-goals
The first step to getting control in your life is to get to know the real you.You might be living your life according to what you think other people expect of you. Is this fair? or right? We can discuss this together and look at how some of your life choices may be impacting on your happiness and what things are worth changing.
Once you are confident in your skin and know that the choices you are making are the right ones for you, you will feel much stronger.
You will also be able to recognise that some relationships in your life are not that healthy (neither for you nor the other person) and you will not feel guilty for standing up for yourself and / or asking to have your needs met.
