About me

Helen Breakwell BACS hons, DPS, MBACP

I am a fully qualified relational counsellor and I offer an integrative approach. This means i'll work with a variety of methods and go at your pace. I try to make sure that all my clients are comfortable, feel listened to and understood.

Get in touch, i'm happy to answer any questions you might have.

Counselling can help:

  • Give you the space to talk and explore what you're experiencing in a safe and confidential setting.
  • Support you through times when you might be struggling.
  • You understand your story, identify the roots of problems and how it's affecting you now.

Training, qualifications & experience

Experience

Before setting up my therapy practice, I worked for a counselling agency in Hereford and for Cruse (a national bereavement charity). I have worked with clients for a number of years with issues including abuse, anxiety, depression, loss, low self-confidence, relationships, stress and trauma.​​

Since 2001 I have worked in the charity sector and for over 12 years I have worked directly with people affected by cancer for a large health and research charity.

As well as completing training over four years and working professionally with clients, I have personal experience of close bereavement and adverse life experiences. So I understand that life can be tough sometimes and psychological therapies can make a big difference.

Professional training and membership

​I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and uphold its ethical framework. I have a Counselling Diploma in Professional Studies (BACP accredited training) and a Certificate in Counselling from the University of the West of England, Bristol.

​I have regular clinical supervision, liability insurance, ongoing professional development and contribute to mental health research.
