COUNSELLING / PSYCHOTHERAPY IN NORTH LONDON, HARROW & HEMEL HEMPSTEAD
Zion Counselling is the professional Private Practice of Ellen Parsons
MBACP (Accred) Counsellor / Psychotherapist
I am a qualified BACP Accredited Counsellor / Psychotherapist, with a broad experience of counselling individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and with diverse needs and presentations.
My approach is predominantly Person-Centred, which means, as your counsellor, I will be seeking to actively listen and help facilitate your process, whilst offering compassion, acceptance and sensitivity; I also draw on other theoretical approaches where appropriate, (i.e. incorporating a more integrative approach).
I will offer you a safe space, where you may explore and process, with encouragement and support, any difficult emotions, or issues you are struggling with.
Through the counselling process, you may gain a deeper understanding of yourself, along with greater clarity, new perspectives and increasing self-worth, helping you move forward more constructively in your life and relationships. The therapeutic relationship is at the heart of my approach and I respect and encourage your autonomy within the therapeutic process at all times.
Where your Christian faith informs your life and relationships, you may wish to bring, and explore aspects of this as part of your therapy. As an experienced Christian counsellor, I am here to support you through this process, and may draw on aspects of a well-established integrative Christian psychotherapy model (CWR) where appropriate, and if desired by you.
On-line and Telephone Counselling available
I also offer therapy from 3 locations, and my therapy rooms are located in Harrow, North West London; Hemel Hempstead and also Muswell Hill, North London.
Time limited counselling is available, where you may wish to attend for a limited amount of sessions (usually between 6 - 12) in order to specifically focus on a particular issue or a couple of issues.
Longer term psychotherapy is available if you wish to explore and work through deeper issues in a more timely way.
