Hello, my name is Helein and I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor offering support to individuals and couples online.
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 – relationships, working too much, health – but seem unable to stop yourself? Or perhaps you have come to a crossroads in life and are grappling for meaning and looking for direction.
I would like to offer you a confidential space where you can feel heard and accepted. I will support you as you develop a greater understanding of yourself, the decisions you make and your relationship with others.
When choosing a counsellor, it is really important you find someone you feel comfortable with, and someone who you will feel safe to share your issues of concern with. I therefore offer a free 20-minute telephone introductory consultation where we will discuss what you would like to achieve from the counselling. There will also be time for you to ask me any questions you may have about counselling and the counselling process before making an emotional and financial commitment.
Please get in touch via email or telephone and I will reply within 24 hours.
During this period of physical and social distancing I am offering online session using Zoom.

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.

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).

I co-facilitate a 10 week Personal Development Group, the next cohort begins on Tuesday 13th October at 7pm.
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.
