Helen Tennant Adult/Child/RelationshipCounsellor,PG.Dip, PG Cert, MBACP
Fresh Counselling Newport
10 Llanthewy Road
I am a very experienced (level 7), genuine and caring Adult, Teens, Child and Relationship Counsellor with a naturally friendly ability to put you at your ease and help you with your self confidence. Approachable and discreet, I work within an Integrative framework, which combines CBT, Humanistic/Person Centered and Psychodynamic methodology. I also have a keen interest in the use of creative methods, as I believe that the unconscious mind holds a lot of answers. I have extensive experience of counselling within a vast range of counselling environments, including a specialist SARC (sexual abuse) unit. I have trained in working therapeutically with L.G.B.T.Q. clients and pride myself in practicing in an L.G.B.T.Q. affirmative way. I also offer therapy for children aged 04-11, having recently worked as a primary school counsellor. Mindfulness practice is also available.
If you choose to see me on a confidential "face to face" basis, I offer a warm, safe and comfortable environment where you will not be judged or criticised. We are all unique and I aim to provide a bespoke service that is tailored towards your individual needs, adapting my experience, expertise and training in order to help you find the way forward. Living with the demands and cut and thrust of today's hectic world I understand that sometimes we can lose our sense of who we are. I aim to assist in helping find 'you' once more. I believe that it is 'you' that matters. Communicating is one of the first steps towards healing. It is also one of the hardest steps to take, but if you take it, can become one of the greatest. I believe you can do it.
And you can.
Concessions for students, trainee counsellors and low income clients are available. Why not call me for a free, friendly, confidential, with no commitments chat to discuss? I look forward to hearing from you.
