Key Worker CounsellingMates in Mind

Thank you for checking out my profile; my name is John Ellis, I am an Accredited Member of the NCS.
I am an Integrative therapist with extensive training in a number of modalities. I have the skill, ability and flair to utilise these modalities individually or bring them together in a synergy to help my clients achieve the outcome they desire from therapy.
As well as private practice, I have 5 years as an active volunteer at the national mental health charity, Mind, here I work with the long-term and crisis 'face to face' counselling teams, seeing clients virtually, on web cam via Zoom and Skype.
For enquiries about my private practice, please feel free to contact me here.
