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.
