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.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor and draw upon a range of theoretical models to meet individual needs. My 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, I work holistically to integrate the whole self.

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

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). MBACP Registered Member 389027.

Vicki Kearney

I am a qualified integrative counsellor with experience of handling many mental health issues. My experience comes from working in both the charitable and private sector, offering affordable counselling for clients from a diverse range of social, cultural and ethnic communities. I work from a client centred approach and will draw upon different therapies (cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic, humanistic and gestalt) depending on the needs of my client.

I believe in working together to understand what is going on for you, to come to terms with painful experiences and to find ways to change your patterns of behaviour and develop an understanding and self-awareness to move forward with confidence. As your therapist, I will be part of the process to guide, support and ensure that you are able to find the answers you are looking for.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work in accordance with their ethical framework. Like all registered therapists I am in regular professional supervision with an experienced qualified supervisor.

I am currently working with adults predominantly online using zoom or by telephone due to Covid restrictions but can offer some clients face to face therapy here at the ETNA centre if appropriate. You have taken the first step, now feel free to give me a call to discuss how I might help you to work through the difficulties you are experiencing.

Natalie Freeman

I am a qualified and registered counsellor and have worked in private practice for over 5 years.

I believe in an approach which tailors the therapy to the client as each person is unique and so I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-centred and Psychodynamic approaches depending on your needs.

We will work together to discover the root of your issue and help to create a better understanding of it. This will provide you with the opportunity to make positive changes in your life and help you to move forward. Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly, face to face or on the telephone. I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period.

I am a registered member of the BACP and as such, work within their ethical framework.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss whether counselling is right for you and how I may be able to help you.
