Independent Clinical Psychologist, Harlow (on Herts and Essex border) and Online
Let your hopes not your fears shape your future - Robert H Schuller
Hello, my name is Elena and I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years of post-qualification experience, with a particular focus on adults and older adults. I feel privileged to work as a clinical psychologist to help people to find the resources within themselves to work through life’s inevitable struggles and to thrive.
I have a special interest in working with issues around acute and chronic illness, chronic pain, life transitions, identity and trauma. I am also experienced in working with anxiety, phobias, depression, loss, bereavement, body image issues, suicidal ideation, stress, carer issues, working with conflict, low self-esteem and low confidence.
Mental and physical health difficulties can have profound effects on us directly, those that are close to us, and on our relationships with others, and I believe strongly that to look after and care for others, we need to care for ourselves. I welcome referrals from partners and relatives of those directly affected by physical or mental difficulties.
I work in a compassionate, non-blaming and collaborative way, helping people to identify and give voice to what truly matters to them, and empowering them to move forward meaningfully, becoming the compassionate experts in how to live their own lives.
My phone and email (where contact information will be sent to) are not monitored during annual leave, evenings and weekends.
I will aim to respond as soon as I am able to and within two working days when not on leave.
