A SAFE SPACE.....Online Therapy

Hello and a warm welcome to Elise Whittington Counselling!

I specialise in the issues of anxiety, self-worth, narcissism, toxic relationships and personal development.

I have 10 years clinical experience in working with general and chronic anxiety. I will explore with you the roots of your anxiety and what it means for you in the present day. I will also help you build a 'tool kit' of management techniques to help you manage your anxiety right now, why you are on your therapy journey.

We are all born with a strong, authentic sense of self-worth, but through negative life events and experiences this can become 'squashed' and we can experience self-doubt, a lowered or low self-worth and low self-confidence which often contributes to other issues such as anxiety and/or depression. Maybe you feel like you don't really 'know yourself' and you can sometimes or often feel 'inauthentic.' I will help you to explore what has happened in your life past and present that may have contributed to your lowered self-worth or sense of not knowing yourself and help you to explore who you are. I believe that no self-worth is completely destroyed and that with the right exploration it is possible to recover self-worth, authenticity and a strong sense of self.

My third specialist area of practice is narcissism. I have been working with narcissists and narcissism for over 10 years but I have particularly specialised in helping adult children of and partners of narcissists for two years. It's so hard being in relationship with a narcissist and effects you so deeply as a person being often emotionally, physically and psychologically abusive. I can help you understand what narcissism is, how it affects you and help you to explore your own journey. Maybe you don't feel listened to or believed? I can help you explore your personal journey, your future choices, tools for surviving narcissism, anxiety and explore re-building your self-worth with you. All of my work is done at the speed and depth to which you need it to be. Counselling isn't advice but a deep exploration, a profound 'holding' experience and a chance to be really listened to, believed and heard.

Counselling is very useful for personal development! Counselling is often wrongly assumed to be just for help during a trauma or significant life event. A few sessions can also be very helpful for self development, growing self-esteem and self-worth, exploring setting personal boundaries, exploring relationships and how you relate to others in a general sense. Counselling can help you make better choices going forward and help you to feel better about yourself.

I offer 60 minute sessions through the online counselling video platform Zoom from my counselling studio in Alfold, Surrey with the help of my labrador Wellie who is always snoring away under my chair. I can guarantee that he is extremely confidential and many clients miss his deep, rhythmical snoring on the rare occasions he chooses to abandon his position in the therapy studio!

Online counselling via a video platform is now an established way of receiving therapy which is proven to be just as effective as in person therapy. Online counselling has many benefits including increased flexibility as there is no time consuming and costly travel, being able to have your therapy in your work lunchtime, having the security of your own chosen surroundings, even from your car and of course eliminating the risk that someone you know may see you attending your session. As a client you can be anywhere in the country and at this present time, it also eliminates the need to wear masks.

I work flexibly to suit your personal circumstances and needs. This could be a regular fixed session day and time or it can be flexible at a day and time to suit you with each session. I am able to work purely through talking or I am happy to work with you creatively as well if this is something you enjoy and would find useful. Sessions are booked one at a time so therapy can be just a few sessions or long-term to suit your needs. Upon enquiry, I will offer you a free 10-15 minute Zoom chat so that we can meet each other and discuss your needs, how we might work together and to answer any questions you may have with no obligation for you to continue into paid therapy sessions.

I am a fully qualified to honours degree level counsellor with many years of practice and thousands of client contact hours in experience. I have worked in counselling agencies and charities before becoming a private practitioner. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and of the Counselling Directory, both of which organisations vigously check qualifications, experience and fitness to practice. I have a current DBS check to offer therapy and work strictly to all UK ethical guidelines for practice. I am registered with the Information Commissioners Office to ensure your data protection.
