Eleanor K Counselling

Neurodivergent and LGBTQIA+
Anti-Oppressive and Compassionate Care

"You need support, validation, good coping skills. You need and deserve acceptance"

How can I help?

What I can support you with:

As a Pluralistic counsellor, I reject the one-size-fits-all approach and draw on different styles of working, collaborating with you to build the right toolbox to support your needs.

Whether you are seeking support in exploring your gender, sexuality, or neurodiversity, or looking for a therapist who understands the intersectionality of these parts of your identity and can offer an understanding and supportive space to explore other personal challenges, I am here to work with you.

 

I understand that brains that are wired differently, whether through trauma or neurological difference, require a different approach to therapy and marginalised people need a safe space to explore their challenges and identify their strengths.

I help clients regain a sense of purpose and autonomy, identify the root causes of current challenges, and feel like themselves again. By exploring what we are in control of and what is a learnt pattern of behaviour, we can recognise what is in our control and how to create positive change.

If you have found in the past that counsellors have made assumptions about you or what recovery or wellness should look like for you, I can offer you a different approach. I know that you are the expert on yourself and what does or doesn't work for you. By combining my understanding of counselling and Neurodivergence with your lived experience, together we can help you make the changes you want to improve your life and well-being.

Common themes my clients have brought:

  • Wondering if you may be Autistic or ADHD

  • I have received an Autism/ ADHD diagnosis; now what?

  • How do I navigate a Neurotypical world as a Neurodivergent person?

  • Unmasking 

  • 'Lighting myself on fire to keep others warm'

  • Uncertainty around gender and sexuality

  • Navigating life as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community

  • Chronic burnout and exhaustion

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Abuse

  • Trauma and PTSD

  • Low self-worth

  • Finding everything too much or overwhelming
