Reach your goals!
I have 24 years’ experience as a therapist, helping people free themselves from emotional pain and complex struggles. My specialist training and personal style is focused on encouraging, practical and creative teamwork.
I’ve found that combining contemporary evidence based approaches such as EMDR, CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy, together with a positive coaching and mentoring style really brings out the best in people and makes sustainable long term progress.
You can pursue effective results and nourish your whole wellbeing at the same time. I can help you heal what needs to be healed, and develop more courage, freedom and authenticity. You can cultivate the strengths, skills and insights to thrive.

I believe in creative team-working with all my clients in a way that's encouraging, practical and down to earth. I like helping people DO what matters – not just talk about it!
Thanks to the process of really tuned in therapy and Eleanor’s savvy spot on guidance, I’m much more calm these days. Rather than letting things escalate to the point of stress-out, I now evaluate what is going on, coach myself with more constructive thoughts and end up making firm decisions, because I can now trust in myself.”
What you can gain from therapy and coaching with me
A team approach to suit you
Together we will create a constructive pathway which addresses key events in your life story. We will develop a focused and holistic approach meeting your specific priorities. This will include clear strategies to strengthen you and your progress - right from the start.
We will create a practical and realistic plan or "toolkit" best suited to your life context and learning style. This will enable you to move forward in key life areas that matter to you. We will update this plan regularly to continue responding to your fresh insights and growth.
We will develop positive teamwork that encourages and supports your onward journey. Together we will ensure that you feel inspired and motivated about actions you can take between sessions to maximise change in your everyday life.
We can work together online, by phone or in person – whichever method would fit best with the context of your life.
You’re welcome to book as many or as few sessions as you wish. Usually people book 6 sessions at a time, as this creates a focussed and realistic momentum for positive change.
`Being successful isn't about being impressive, it's about being inspired. "You can have it all" is a lie. But you can become more true to yourself and make a difference in other peoples lives. There's power in allowing yourself to be known and heard, in owning your unique story, in using your authentic voice.
Let your hardships make you hungrier to succeed, put yourself higher on your own to do list, and find some positive people who can truly listen and lift you up and cheer you on.
Deciding what’s best for you
