Elaine Macha  

PG Dip. Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP Registered

PGCE & Enhanced DBS




I am a fully qualified person-centred integrative therapist, and registered member of the BACP. I work with warmth, compassion, and integrity, building a confidential empathic relationship, which is key to bring therapeutic change, empowering clients to express their feelings and bring clarity to their experiences. Counselling offers you the opportunity to talk through issues in a supportive, confidential and safe space, where you can identify, explore and understand what doesn’t feel right within. Although this can sometimes feel challenging, it can also be inspiring and creative, exploring concerns, worries and experiences.

As an integrative therapist, I am responsive to each unique individual, adjusting my therapeutic approach, using theories and resources to best meet each person’s needs. I will help you identify a ‘therapeutic aim’ to work towards which will help give focus to the counselling sessions. We will work together towards achieving your aim which may include understanding where unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviours come from; identifying alternative ways of thinking; developing new coping strategies; and considering different perspectives. The counselling process is determined by you.

l am passionate about supporting people to deal with a wide variety of emotional difficulties, including low self-esteem, self-harm, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, relationship problems, loss and bereavement, trauma, anger management, stress and past experiences which affect the present.

I have worked with young people in education for over 25 years and I hold a current enhanced disclosure (DBS). In addition, I am completing a Diploma in Child and Adolescent counselling, to enhance my experience of working with children and young people.

I am a fully insured and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and therefore I work towards and abide by their Ethical Frameworks and professional standards.
