About Ella

It is a great privilege for me to travel with people on their therapeutic journeys, and I aim to foster a safe collaborative space characterised by openness, curiosity, warmth, humour, respect and responsiveness. I have an open-minded and non-judgemental approach and enjoy working with people of all ages and genders.

Techniques

I practice a systemic and person-centred approach to therapy, working from the understanding that each person is the expert in their own lives. When appropriate I also greatly value a trauma-informed approach to therapy. My therapeutic techniques are drawn from Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy and Attachment Theory.
