Helen Ferreira: DIP Counselling, M BACP
Hello, my name is Helen. Very often things stand in our way to us enjoying even the simplest pleasures in life. You may need help with Anger, Anxiety, Guilt, Shame, Depression or Stress. You may be experiencing a Relationship Breakdown, Struggling to come to terms with the death of someone close or you may want to become more Self Aware, understanding yourself and those around you, then my Counselling Service is here to help you.
I am also experienced in supporting victims of sexual assault and rape and survivors of childhood sexual abuse including those that have dissociative symptoms due to the trauma that they have experienced. I understand the importance to offer you a safe confidential non-judgmental environment.
I offer you Counselling from premises I use in Childswickham near to Broadway, Evesham and the Cotswolds in Worcestershire on the border of Gloucestershire
I have Ten years experience working with people who need help working through various and numerous issues. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to have worked alongside people and witnessed positive change in their lives.
I'm a qualified children's counsellor who also works for Teens in Crisis as a schools counsellor.
I use an integrative counselling approach so that I can respond to the individual needs of my clients.
Our first meeting together you will be able to tell me something of your story and what it is that has brought you for counselling. You can then decide if you feel you would like me to be your counsellor as it is important for you to feel comfortable in the counselling relationship.
If you have any questions or are interested in coming to see me for counselling please contact me with no obligation, by email or phone. I have my phone turned down when I am with a client. If you leave a message I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I look forward to hearing from you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
