Helein Treuhaft | Psychotherapeutic Counsellor | Registered MBACP
Hello, my name is Helein and I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor offering support to individuals and couples.
There are many reasons why you may like to see a therapist. Life challenges can be difficult to navigate and, at times, feel overwhelming; talking to friends and family may not be enough or appropriate.
Maybe you find yourself falling into unhelpful patterns – working too much, relationship difficulties, misusing alcohol or substances – but seem unable to stop yourself. Perhaps you are experiencing feelings of overwhelm and are anxious, struggle to stay in the here-and-now. Perhaps you just feel alone and disconnected and need to be seen and heard.
Face to face counselling
Online counselling via Zoom
Walk & talk therapy - outside in nature. We walk and talk, using the environment to facilitate discussions, observations and activities.
If you would like to organise a free 20-minute chat where we can discuss your needs, please get in touch via email or telephone and I will reply within 24 hours.
During lockdown and the need for physical and social distancing I am offering online counselling sessions using Zoom for both individuals and couples.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have personal experience of addictions, and recovery. This includes substance addiction (alcohol, street/prescription /over the counter medication, emotional eating), process addictions (love, gambling etc.) and living with others’ active addictions.
I am a trained bereavement counsellor, and understand the desperation felt by a loss of any kind whether that be a partner, family member, a friendship, job, pet or anything you really miss. If grief is left unresolved, it can impact your life for years. The old adage, ‘time is a great healer’ is not strictly true. Grief is fluid: I liken it to sea waves, sometimes it gentle laps and other times it’s a huge surge which can feel overwhelming.
I also have extensive experience of working with people who have anxiety, depression, anger, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem and low self-confidence.

I co-facilitate a weekly Personal Development Group.
The aim of the group is to help deepen your understanding of how you develop relationship patterns in your life (romantic, friendships, in families etc.). It aims to bring together people who wish to explore this in more depth, through group proess, where members can talk openly about their experiences and interactions with others. Group process creates a space to form a broader understanding of your inner world and, in particular, how this can influence your relationship with others.
