Elle is a qualified Integrative Counsellor, which means she combines a number of different psychological theories and techniques. Her foundational theory is person/client-centred whilst also including elements from psychodynamic theory, cognitive behaviour therapy, and existential philosophy. She’s a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adheres to their ethical framework.
“I provide a safe space to explore the grief and often complicated emotions arising from bereavement and loss. You may have lost a loved one, a beloved pet, experienced miscarriage or stillbirth, or even suffered the loss of a job or relationship. Counselling provides you with the opportunity to work through your feelings and heal from the experience of loss or bereavement”.
Elle has specialist experience working with grief and loss as well as clients recovering from alcohol and substance misuse. She has also worked with clients experiencing other issues such as depression, anxiety, infertility, childhood issues, relationship breakdown and work-related stress.
Elle believes you know yourself best and that you have free will to make your own choices. She finds her work with clients naturally follows three stages:- exploration (the who, what, when, where, how and why of what happened), insight (looking at things in new and different ways) and action (what will be useful to you in aiding you to heal and move on).
Elle Hull is committed to excellence in her practice and therefore undertakes regular continuing professional development to further her education and keep up to date with research and changes within counselling and psychology. This enables her to deepen and enhance her counselling knowledge and practice. Some of the subjects that Elle regularly undertakes learning in bereavement and loss, grief and loss, suicide prevention, culture and diversity, depression and eating disorders.
