Dr Helen Damon, CPsychol, FHEA, DPsych, MA(Oxon), MA, BSc(Hons)
Hello, I'm Helen. I'm a Counselling Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS). I'm a Lecturer on the Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at Regent’s University London, a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), and a member of the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS).
In my private practice, I work with people experiencing a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse, stress, and more. I'm particularly experienced in working with issues relating to death and dying, bereavement, life transitions, personal identity and values, and self-worth.
I offer online sessions to individuals via FaceTime and Zoom. As a Counselling Psychologist, I'm trained in several forms of therapy, including person-centred, existential-phenomenological, psychodynamic, and CBT. This enables me to tailor the way I work to best suit your unique therapeutic needs, goals, and preferences.
By engaging in therapy, you're making a significant investment in yourself. As such, it’s important that you take time to find the right therapist for you. As your therapist, I will meet you with empathy, warmth, and the utmost respect. Together, we will work to explore, and develop an in-depth understanding of, the issues you have brought to therapy in the context of your life as a whole, focusing on identifying and unpacking unhelpful patterns, themes, and critical experiences. From this understanding, we will work to identify, and to support you in enacting, new ways of being in relation to yourself, others, and the world, to enable you to live your life in a way that best fulfils you and accords with your personal values and aspirations.
If you think I may be the right therapist for you at this time, please email me: I’d be happy to answer any questions you have and to arrange a free video call, or an introductory session, with you.
