Transformational coach | Mental health advocate | Freelance photographer
I am a transformational coach, mental health advocate and freelance photographer based in Surrey, but often in London. Some of my core values include creativity, adventure, connection and curiosity. I like to blend my passion for people and creativity in many areas of my work and life, including my coaching and photography. This makes for a relatable and compassionate yet fun and light-hearted experience for my clients, how ever they choose to work with me.
I have a first-class BSc in psychology and have completed one of the most renowned coaching courses worldwide with Animas, Centre for Coaching. As a coach I offer face-to face or remote sessions to people that feel ready to make change in order to feel more fulfilled and happy. I provide my clients with a safe space to discuss and explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviours and use evidence-based techniques to support them in making long-lasting transformational changes, optimise their psychological wellbeing, and moving closer to their most fulfilling life.
As a freelance photographer I predominantly work with individuals and businesses to create on-brand imagery for their websites, marketing and social media. I see my role as not only creating high quality images, but also telling a story by capturing a feeling in an image or portraying someone's personality. Alongside this, I also create not-for-profit photography projects and campaigns designed to highlight and tackle important social issues. A proportion of the profits made from my freelance photography goes towards creating these campaigns.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY.
Sara Lynn Bruhns
Founder and Host of The SL Method
Ellie holds the space and creates immediate comfort when meeting. I’ve had a lot of issues around managing my stress, anxieties, work, and relationships and with her tremendous talent for simplifying the big chaotic issues in life as well as her skill to reframe, I was able to create feasible and productive goals in order to manage the pressure I felt."
Personal Trainer & Founder of Strong for Everyday
My shoot with Ellie was just brilliant! From the moment I got in touch with her, she was super helpful and went above and beyond! I had no worries going into the shoot as she made me feel so comfortable before we even met! On the shoot she was calm, really useful with suggestions, and I just knew the photos would turn out great! And they did! I can't wait to shoot with her again and would recommend her to anyone!
Founder of Tone Sculpt Yoga
As an entrepreneur, I was struggling with mindset and needed someone to push me out of my comfort zone and support me in getting out of my own way. Ellie helped me to do that and left me with a plan of action at the end of every call to ensure that I stayed on track. All of our calls were over Skype and she always made scheduling easy.
Shooting with Ellie was a dream! She was so warm, friendly and put me 100% at ease. The whole process of arranging the session was a breeze. As well as having some wonderful, heartfelt conversations, we really enjoyed the time spent together – I managed to mostly forget I was even having my picture taken! Ellie gave great suggestions and the perfect amount of direction. The results are exactly what I'd hoped for – a series of photographs that perfectly capture my personality and brand. I am absolutely delighted and will definitely be shooting with her again.
Having Ellie as my coach was a great experience from which I achieved many tangible results. She supported me through a particularly intense period, giving me the time I absolutely needed, for which I am very grateful! I achieved huge transformational shifts in my life, from overcoming my need to people please, to gaining clarity, direction and securing a promotion at work, I really can't thank her enough! The space Ellie created in our sessions enabled me to explore my vulnerabilities safely which I believe was key to my success.
Transformation Coach, Mentor & Speaker
Ellie made the process really seamless and nailed the aesthetic I wanted for the shoot. We got an array of shots for my website and social media that have been really popular. I also loved Ellie's positive attitude and flexibility. She was a dream to work with!
