The Ellesmere Centre, working in partnership with CHCP CIC provides a number of choices for those seeking counselling and Psychotherapy in Hull.
We have a large number of qualified and experienced counsellors and therapists able to provide a range of different therapeutic approaches to suit patients. All of our therapists are qualified to Diploma or Degree level and have at least three years’ experience of practise in their area of expertise.
The Ellesmere centre has been designed with the needs of our clients in mind. It is a calm and peaceful environment that is ideal for therapy and reflection.
Our main approach to therapy is Transactional Analysis, though there are also Integrative, Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) therapists practising from the centre. They specialise in different areas of mental health and stress related issues, such as:
Counselling takes place when a counsellor sees a client in a private and confidential setting to explore a difficulty the client is having, distress they may be experiencing or perhaps their dissatisfaction with life, or loss of a sense of direction and purpose.
In the counselling sessions the client can explore various aspects of their life and feelings, talking about them freely and openly in a way that is rarely possible with friends or family. Bottled up feelings such as anger, anxiety, grief and embarrassment can become very intense and counselling offers an opportunity to explore them, with the possibility of making them easier to understand. The counsellor will encourage the expression of feelings and as a result of their training will be able to accept and reflect the client’s problems without becoming burdened by them.
Psychotherapy is the process of exploring sometimes difficult and often painful emotions and experiences with an experienced and qualified therapist. It is a process that seeks to help the person gain an increased capacity for choice, through which the individual becomes more autonomous and self determined.
