About me



Mental health is a crucial topic that affects everyone and should not be considered taboo. If you have attempted to improve your mental health with self-help methods but have not seen any progress, or if you feel that something is not right but cannot identify what it is, I am here to help you.
I am an experienced psychotherapist based in the United Kingdom, and I provide my services online, assisting clients from across the nation and worldwide.

Counselling style

I have helped many clients worldwide successfully overcome a wide range of issues and I am sensitive to cultural differences.
My counselling style is interactive and genuine, encouraging open communication and collaboration. I will adapt my counselling approach to meet your needs and develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to your specific requirements. You can expect a warm, empathic, and professional environment where your needs and goals are my top priority.
I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society & Psychotherapy, fully insured and GPDR up to date; and always prioritize ethical practice.
With extensive theoretical knowledge and experience in Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Psychodynamic and Person-Centred (PC) Therapy, I am committed to helping you overcome emotional and psychological distress.

Client Group

I specialize in providing online counselling services for adults aged 18 and above. This online approach can be highly beneficial for those who feel uncomfortable with face-to-face meetings. By allowing clients to remain in their environment, they can feel more at ease and secure, which can facilitate the counselling process.

Getting in touch

If you are interested in booking a session with me, please get in touch. Finding the right counsellor can be a daunting and very personal task, so I am happy to assist you in making the right choice. During our initial consultation, we will introduce ourselves and determine if we are a good fit for working together.

Since I started working with Elena I made massive progress. She really helped me with my mental health and issues and I became a much more happy person. In situations I’d normally response with anger now I’m able to express myself and solve problems in a peaceful way.
