Elaine Pashouros

Are you struggling with life generally or experiencing relationship issues? Maybe something has happened that has unsettled you or perhaps you are feeling anxious or lonely. Counselling can help you to gain an understanding into what is beneath your distress or unhappiness and provide the opportunity to explore and reflect upon your feelings, thoughts and behaviours. In doing so, your self-awareness will grow meaning greater choice for you to move forward.

Elaine is a qualified integrative counsellor and draws upon a range of theoretical models to meet individual needs. Her focus is to create a warm, safe and confidential space where you can make sense of what is bringing you to counselling: a space where you feel heard, valued and able to share your concerns at your own pace. The mind and body are connected; therefore, she works holistically to integrate the whole self.

She offers a free 15-minute telephone call to gauge if how she works suits your needs and for you to gain a sense of whether she may be the right counsellor for you. If you decide to take the next step, she can arrange an initial session. This will be for 50 minutes, either in-person at ETNA Community Centre or online via Zoom. The sessional costs are £55, concessional rates are available, working on a short-term and open-ended basis, dependant on the needs.

Elaine is Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). MBACP Registered Member 389027.
