Biography


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.
