Paula Charnley
I'm a person Centred Counsellor and offer Counselling via video link or phone. My Counselling experience is in diverse issues; bereavement, relationship breakdown, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, dealing with chronic illness and all issues which hold us back in life. I believe that we know when we want to make some changes in our life and, that is a great time to reach out for support. This is your opportunity to be heard and validated without judgement for whatever you would like to talk about in a session. As a qualified Yoga Teacher I am particularly interested in the Mind-Body Connection. So in a Counselling session I may offer you a breathing or grounding exercise to help with anxiety or to deal with intense emotions. My practice is based upon the Ethical Framework of the BACP where confidentiality, integrity & mutual respect are at the forefront. I would like to work together with you to support you in reaching your potential. I lived for many years in the Netherlands & have returned to my area of birth in North Staffordshire.

Ashley Horsley
I have worked in the field of mental health for over twenty years and I do this work from a place of love, passion and vocation. As well as a thorough and in-depth professional training I also bring the important often difficult learnings from life, relationships, parenting, loss, ageing: any such central components of being alive. My central thrust is towards connection, authenticity and trust: to offer this and thus encourage the same from you. I create a safe space in which you can feel ready to unburden yourself from the weight of whatever you are carrying alone. Whether it is your anxieties and fears or your anger and dissatisfaction; whether it is haunting trauma or crippling self-doubt: whatever it is I am there to accompany you on the journey to the bottom of it. The work is all about communication and expression, through listening to your story and through working with your body where so often tension is trapped and tormenting. The timing of your arrival in therapy is always the right timing: when your need wells right up to the surface and sends you to me I am here. It is vitally important that we do not feel locked away in solitary confinement; that hope, trust and safety are accessible human resources found in contact with others. As your therapist I will work hard to sustain or recover these for you. The Corona Crisis: our New Reality We have been fighting to survive not only a pandemic but the self-isolation and social distance we need to bear for the duration. If you are somebody who needs help navigating these changes, I will offer a port in the storm for you where you can have the contact, conversation, support and connection that you need.

Carolyn Moscrop
I am very lucky to have had the opportunity to use my counselling skills to support people in so many different ways. I have counselled at a GP surgery. I have worked with a local charity and a national bereavement charity. I have run anger management groups and also specialising in bereavement counselling. I now focus on my private practice in Hastings working with people online the phone and face to face. I also work with children and have done creative activities with people with dementia. Before I became a counsellor was a social worker in London supporting people with drug rehabilitation. Seeing how well some people managed to come off drugs with the support of one to one counselling made me want to become a counsellor to offer that kind of support. I also worked in a hospital on a mental health team and at the local social services in East Sussex.

Richard Dennison
I left school and home as soon as I could, not having enjoyed my life in the family. It was a number of years before I recovered from this experience. I therefore fully appreciate the benefits that therapy has to offer. I qualified in 1999 as a Gestalt therapist and have worked in primary health care (NHS), for Mind and Rethink and now in private practice. I have gained a wide experience of working with individuals and couples which combined with my own experiences have enabled me to help facilitate the development of clients I see. I work in a manner that seeks to empower and enable people to find their own way and make decisions for themselves. We are beings that relate to others and to our environment, this is an emphasis that is offen looked at in detail, especially in long term work. Short term problem solving or grief counselling is offen more focused work upon a small number of issues.

Ellie Mackay
Hi I am Ellie and I am a highly experienced and qualified psychotherapist who is based in Hull, East Yorkshire and over the years I have helped a wide range of clients who have experienced different issues. I am a facilitator of change, and just like scaffolding, I support my client while the delicate restorative work is ongoing. The aim of this process is to help you explore the cause of the issues, support you while you make the necessary adjustments, and then arm you with your own inner resources to continue your recovery journey. I use the key techniques of Gestalt psychotherapy: symbolic work, two chair work and dream work in a deeply empathetic way. This is not an exhaustive list, but here are a few of the symptoms that I have helped people with over the years. • Struggling to carry out day to day activities • Finding it hard to cope • Lack of confidence • Relationship issues • Struggling to getting up in the morning • Worrying thoughts & feelings • Overthinking • Catastrophizing (Expect the worst will happen) • Confidence & relationship issues. • Dealing with a very severe critic • Low self esteem • Childhood trauma • Difficult relationships • Addictions • Depression • Anxiety • Panic • Grief • Trauma surrounding childbirth, miscarriage & post-natal depression My practice embraces diversity in all its forms and I work keenly with people of all gender identities, sexualities, abilities, ethnic backgrounds, age groups, etc. My choice of profession has been born out of a fundamental desire to help heal people. My mission is to turn my passion for change into supporting my community and a world that I want my own family to grow up in. The work I do is more than just a job to me. It draws upon my natural strengths and has been finely tuned over many years of theoretical and practical experience. My work is also underpinned by my own programme of self-care and continued personal and professional development, to make sure you receive the most dedicated support possible. I really would love to help you and I provide a nourishing safe and non-judgemental holding space, so you have nothing to worry about. If you would like to book an initial free phone consultation to see if I can help you, please do reach out to me.

Our online therapy philosophy


The goal of E-Therapy is to provide the best private online therapy in the UK, delivering emotional, psychological and behavioural therapies to improve the quality of life for those across the country and worldwide.

The problems we set out to solve


Owing to the complexity and difficulties of our everyday lives, there is a rising demand for these therapeutic services in order to help with our emotional, psychological and physical difficulties.

Sadly, stress, depression and anxiety are now common symptoms of our fast-paced modern times.

We also know that not everybody has the time or resources to find a suitable therapist, and attend face-to-face sessions. Additionally, the stigma of experiencing and dealing with emotional and other difficulties may also prevent those who would benefit from therapy or counselling from using the traditional approach.

We firmly believe that having access to therapy from the comfort of your own home, office, or wherever you choose can help with the problems outlined.

How we strive to help you


We are passionate about helping people live peaceful, joyful and harmonious lives. We also understand that this progress is constantly hindered by the complexities of daily living.

For therapists and counsellors, E-Therapy is a secure, confidential and effective platform through which they can deliver psychological and behavioural therapies. And because it is an online medium, our experienced therapists can reach out to a wider audience.

We strongly believe that with the appropriate guidance, a significant proportion of the population in the UK and across the world can be in a better position to deal with life’s complexities and not feel exhausted or overwhelmed in the process. We strive to improve the quality of life of our clients and assist them in achieving happiness, prosperity and fulfilment through the best online mental health services possible.


Our mission statement


Assisting mankind in the alleviation of psychological and emotional conflict, thereby enabling humanity to progress a step further in its quest for fulfilment, purpose and happiness, in essence creating a more sustainable and harmonious world.
