We are all experiencing the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic and we know that many of you will be worried and upset about what it could mean over the coming days and weeks. As always, City Psychology Group (CPG) is here to help and support you.

Many of our clients routinely make use of our equally effective online therapy sessions, so in light of the current situation our team are working very hard to ensure all clients can benefit from continued therapy online. We therefore ask for you to please bear with us during this busy period in order to enable us to continue providing you with the high quality care that we pride ourselves in. You can do this by providing us with as much notice as possible if you are unable to attend a session as demand is currently high.

We wish you well at this uncertain time, and are grateful to all those in other health services elsewhere, who are working selflessly to keep everyone safe.

Be well and there for each other.

Dr Michael Sinclair
CEO, Clinical Director

Therapies I offer

“Being a counselling psychologist allows me to combine my deep interest in people and how they think and respond with the satisfaction of supporting others as they make changes that are important to them.“

About Me
Research & Publications

The heart of my practice is a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach, and I very often draw on what have been called the "third wave” CBT approaches – mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). I have had training in person-centred and psychodynamic approaches to therapy, and I draw on these when a person needs them. Each individual is different, and I tailor my approach accordingly.

I am always non-judgemental, compassionate, and interested – not just in an individual’s difficulties but also their strengths and the values that are important to them. This is the foundation of our work together. From this foundation, we can begin to look at patterns of thinking and feeling in the moment and, if necessary, where they may have come from.

Like any journey, the pace in therapy can change week by week, moment by moment. Sometimes it’s important just to stop for a moment, to feel able to express how we feel and be understood, and there is space for this in my approach.

Eleanor is a counselling psychologist with over ten years of clinical experience. She has specialist training in delivering cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and has accreditation with the BABCP (British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy). She has an interest and specialist training in mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). Her initial counselling psychology training covered a range of therapies including person centred, psychodynamic, and solution-focused approaches as well as CBT.

Eleanor is able to help people with a wide range of problems including: stress; anxiety; depression; social anxiety and shyness; bereavement and loss; low self-esteem; managing relationships; adjusting to life changes; and anger. She has a special interest in helping people with long-term health conditions, and in the beneficial effects of compassion for ourselves.

In addition to private practice, Eleanor has worked in senior positions in the NHS for several years, including supervising and managing other therapists, as well as extensive clinical work. This has been both in a general setting, seeing people with a wide range of difficulties referred by their GP, and more recently in a medical hospital helping people with persistent pain. She also set up and delivered a counselling service for people with sight loss at the Royal National Institute of Blind People.
