About me

Hi. I'm Helen and I am a counsellor and psychotherapist working with individuals offering both long and short term work.

I work in Acomb in York and provide a safe space to help you work through whatever issues you are facing in a compassionate and empathic way. I believe that anyone can make positive changes if they want to, and I will support you to do this. I understand how easy it can be to feel stuck, and I know that counselling can offer a way through this.

I have experience in supporting people suffering from anxiety and depression, relationship issues, loss and loneliness, family issues and trauma. I welcome enquiries from anyone wanting to explore their experiences and make change and will happily discuss your needs with you.

You will be offered an initial assessment session where we will discuss your needs and expectations and decide from there if you wish to begin counselling. This is also an opportunity for you to talk through any concerns you may have and ask any questions.

Training, qualifications & experience

UKCP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist. I have experience working long term with adults and also offering shorter term work with young people, covering a wide variety of issues including anxiety, depression, abuse, family difficulties, work issues, loss and trauma.
