Ella BoyntonIntegrative psychotherapist
My name is Ella and I am an Integrative Counsellor seeing individuals and couples face-to-face and via Zoom.
Throughout our lives we encounter a range of challenges and experiences that can leave us feeling stuck, depressed, anxious, isolated, or without meaning. My aim is to build a space of trust where you can feel confident in bringing out the parts of yourself that you may have had difficulty sharing before. When starting on a therapeutic journey the process can feel daunting. You may come to therapy with a certain issue you want to explore, or you may feel your life will be richer with greater understanding. Whatever brings you to therapy, my aim will always be to help you bring about positive, lasting change to your life.
Relationships can bring great joy and growth to our lives, but there are times when relationships can become a source of pain and frustration. By taking time to listen to our partners and to feel listened to, we can start the process of unpicking the unhelpful patterns we can find ourselves in. People do not enter relationships in isolation from past experiences, so being able to explore each person’s relational template can give the understanding and insight into how to heal and move forward.
I offer a free 30-min initial session to be able to speak about the things which have brought you to seek therapy and to explore working together.
I look forward to speaking with you
