About me

Hi my name is Helen Burrows,

Just a phone call away, based in Carrbrook, Stalybridge, Gt. Manchester. I am a fully insured and accredited professional Counsellor, providing a personal service.

I feel passionately about helping people through difficult times, as well as helping individuals to reach their personal goals in life. I appreciate that sometimes life is a struggle and from time to time it can be difficult to move forward. I offer an approach which is non judgemental and which helps individuals to explore their thoughts and feelings. I will assist you in working through your individual issues, and help you work through these difficult times.

I have experience of Counselling clients with a wide range of issues some of which include: Stress and Anxiety, Depression, Addictions, Bereavement, Relationship and Family Issues , Anger Management and Low Self Esteem. Other issues I deal with are listed further down the page.

I have previously worked for 20 years in the National Health Service in Pathology. In addition, I work in the voluntary sector at the Women's Centre in Ashton, and most recently was employed by a local organisation offering support to individuals and families suffering from drug, alcohol abuse and mental health issues.
