Elena Perna

Hi, my name is Elena, and I am a Cognitive-Behavioural Psychotherapist and Psychologist here at Therapethical.

I am registered with the BPS with the number 399889 and with the BACP with the number 00983150

I am a therapist because:

I have always been interested and curious about people’s personal journeys, and how experiences, as well as our sense of agency, can shape us and our self-growth. I recognise the importance of interpersonal communication in such growth and the need for a safe and friendly space where each person’s identity can be fully respected. I am committed to contributing toward ending the stigma of mental health, and I aim to guide you through a compassionate process of self-discovery.

How my therapeutic style can help you:

I have a background in psychology and neuropsychology, and my main approach is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), but I work from a more integrative and person-centred perspective. I am LGBTQI+ affirmative, and my aim is to offer a reflective and non-judgemental space where we can collaboratively and safely explore areas of concern to you.
