About me

Feeling stuck and don’t know what to do?

Needing to talk something through and don’t know who to turn to?

Knowing that you need to make some changes in your life and need some extra support?

Helen is a UKCP registered psychotherapist working in private practice in Eastbourne, East Sussex. She is also a member of the BACP. Helen has been helping people work through the challenges of life, work and relationship for over 20 years.

Helen recognises that life is not easy. She believes that we don’t have to have suffered a traumatic experience in order to need a helping hand and a supportive ear. Life at today’s frenetic pace can be terribly isolating, so it can be helpful to have someone to talk to; someone who is trained to listen, wholeheartedly and non-judgementally; someone with whom you can explore how you feel and put words on those feelings. Helen provides a safe space in which you can take a step back from your situation and find some clarity.

Helen’s approach to counselling and psychotherapy is one that prizes the power of the relationship developed between the therapist and client. She provides a safe and confidential environment in which you can share your difficulties and develop an understanding of how you have come to arrive in the struggle. Helen will help you navigate and cope with your experience whilst exploring ways that enable you to move forward.

Helen is a practitioner in what is known as Gestalt psychotherapy. She is also heavily influenced by ideas from Buddhist psychology and other experiential traditions (such as Focusing-orientated psychotherapy). She trained and qualified through the University of Brighton where she is now a Senior Lecturer and Course Leader of the MSc in psychotherapy.
