Elaine Rayen

Wellbeing Counsellor

I’m originally from the Midlands in the UK but moved to Cheshire in 2012 after completion of my University course.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Criminology and a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology.

After university I worked with vulnerable adults in the community, supporting them to live independently. I then worked for a counselling charity which supported bereaved individuals and families. In 2018, I started working at an agricultural college in Cheshire as a Wellbeing Advisor and Counsellor to the students and staff.

My mission at Oryx is to embed wellbeing into the culture here and to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.

In my spare time I enjoy being active, learning new things, listening to audiobooks and spending time with my husband and daughter. We love travelling and exploring but I also appreciate opportunities for rest and relaxation.
