Helen Johnson MBACP
Throughout our lives we are faced with many challenges. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental setting where you can have time and space to explore your emotions and find a way through Life's Maze.
I believe that no one Counselling Theory fits for each person, so I work in an Integrative way using different approaches to suit the individual. The relationship between Counsellor and client is a very important one, based on trust and mutual respect. Any person seeking counselling I welcome with warmth and acceptance regardless of their thoughts, feelings or experiences. Sometimes sharing your feelings with someone outside of the situation may feel more comfortable than with someone who is close to you. I provide a safe time and place for people to explore their feelings and gain a better understanding/awareness of themselves and their relationships.
‘Accepting your own feelings (instead of fighting against them) and trusting yourself, can create a sense of calm and confidence to make changes and take control of your own life’.
