About me

I’m Helen
I am a fully qualified Counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

My background is in working with families and young people who have experienced behavioural problems, including committing offences.

I don't believe in the one size fits all approach. I chose to practise Integrative Counselling, which offers a blend of therapies tailored to meet your needs.

Therapies I offer are:

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It's most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.

Transactional analysis is a form of modern psychology that examines a person's relationships and interactions.

Person-centred therapy is a humanistic approach that deals with the ways in which individuals perceive themselves consciously rather than how a counsellor can interpret their unconscious thoughts or ideas.

By incorporating these three disciplines I am able to offer a blend of therapy which best meets your individual needs

I offer a free assessment lasting 40 minutes where we can discuss your needs and expectations.

I do not work from home but I am based in Basildon, sessions will be held locally. I am happy to book a room near your home town if you are unable to travel.

I can offer short term therapy (up to 10 sessions) and also longer term therapy.
Sessions last 50 minutes and I would hope to see you weekly.

I offer sessions between 9am and 3pm on weekends. Weekday  sessions may be available on request

My service is confidential, with exceptions to serious criminal activity, serious harm to self or harm to another. I also receive monthly supervision with an experienced counsellor, where clients may be anonymously discussed.

I am happy to answer any questions you might have, so make the first step and contact me.
