Hello, my name is Helein and I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor offering support to individuals and couples via Zoom.
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.
Online counselling via Zoom
Outdoor therapy (Bognor Regis area only) - outside in nature, 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.
I am offering online counselling sessions using Zoom for both individuals and couples.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
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 gently 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.

When I work
Outdoor therapy session available Thursday morning and afternoon and Friday mornings only.
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.
