In 2003 I set up my own private practice initially in Bushey Herts. then in Daventry and Rugby in the Midlands. In 2011 my business was rebranded as Your Safe Harbour. Since then I have been networking and have found that this has helped me, not only on a business, but also on a personal level. Many of those I have met have been instrumental in changing the way I think about my marketing and have helped me develop my now successful and profitable business. I am now living and working and managing to have my family life and a social life as well.
I have had many previous roles. Having been a counsellor since 1997 and a registered psychotherapist and counsellor since 2001, I also ran a partnership called Understanding Strategies, an Emotional Intelligence/Literacy consultancy, which led workshops all over the UK training people on Stress Management, Self-Esteem, Basic Counselling Skills, Being a Great Teacher and many more. We also did in-house training for organisations who wanted to train many of their own staff. My partner and I wrote bespoke courses for these organisations and we also wrote a PSHE manual for 6th Form classes called "Where Do I Go From Here?" We were commissioned to do a study of counselling facilities in the Hertfordshire area and this was done over a 6 month period.
Prior to this, I worked at director level with the major companies in the UK whilst employed by Gartner Group, a multinational giant in the IT research field. Previously a teacher of English and Drama in Primary schools, I have also had jobs as a saleswoman, conference manager, customer services manager, tutor, mystery shopper and waitress.
My passion is for seroc, olives and 4N having just taken on the role of GL Dunchurch Lunch
The relaxation techniques that Elissa teaches are spot on. It's clear to see that she is an excellent therapist & counsellor.
Had a great interactive Foresight today with Elissa. She took us all to a calm place and we all left reeling very relaxed and stress free. If she is doing a foresight, it is not one to be missed.
