Welcome to Elpis Counselling

I have worked with clients experiencing issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement/loss, trauma, self harm, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, addictions, abuse and post traumatic stress disorder.

I have worked in both private practice and residential settings with people who have a complex mental health diagnosis.

Previously I have taught counselling skills to level 3 & 4 counselling students. I have worked in Birmingham, London, Lincoln, Liverpool, Thailand and now Worcester, Bromsgrove, Droitwich, Barnt Green and Hagley.

I began working in mental health over 13 years ago, initially as a support worker in a therapeutic community, then after four years of training I became a qualified psychotherapist. That was in 2009 and I have over 3000 hours of post qualification experience. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their code of ethics.

Mark O'LearyAbout Mark

I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist with a wide knowledge of counselling, psychotherapy and psycho-therapeutic environments.

The space I offer people is safe and always confidential. Trust is such an important part of counselling it does not work effectively without it, therefore I never expect people to trust me blindly, rather I prefer people to make their own minds up on whether I am the right counsellor for them.
