Hello my name is Helen. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
I appreciate how daunting it may be for you to contact a counsellor so I will do my best to create a safe and supportive space for you to explore your problems and difficulties.
I am warm and approachable and offer confidential and non judgemental counselling to both individuals and couples.
My role is to listen, support and help you understand your feelings and behaviour better; to help you improve your way of thinking and your ability to cope with whatever difficulties you are facing.
I am a qualified counsellor and am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I am a professionally trained and experienced practitioner working privately and with a well renowned agency. I regularly work with clients presenting with bereavement and loss, anxiety, self-esteem, depression and relationship issues.
If you are studying and need personal therapy to complete your course I'd be delighted to help.
If you are feeling hopeless and helpless contact me and I will arrange an appointment for you. Appointments last one hour. If I cannot help you I will try to signpost you to someone who may be able to meet your individual needs.
