Helen Curran BSc(Hons) PGDip MBACP MNCS (Accred)

About me

I provide a confidential service offering support for a wide range of difficulties. I offer both short term and longer term therapy. During an initial no obligation phone call, we can discuss whether I may be able to help. I work with clients to develop an approach best suited to their specific needs. We will usually agree this during the first couple of sessions.

I work from a safe, welcoming and private consulting room.

I am a fully experienced counsellor having worked with a range of people and problems including: depression, addictions, anxiety, relationship issues, panic attacks, stress, bereavement and loss, loneliness, separation and divorce and domestic violence.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
