Helen Genty MA MBACP Registered
I work with couples and individuals focusing on relationships.
I work with children using the arts to facilitate the child's self expression through play and metaphor, enabling an empathic communication.
Discovering these expressive techniques has opened my eyes to their potential with individuals, couples and families.
I work on a short to medium term basis.
I am interested in how our own backgrounds and experiences shape us and how these values and perspectives play out in our intimate relationships. When unexamined these scripts may be wreaking havoc in our lives.
Sometimes our strategies for dealing with difficulties can lead us further and further away from each other and we reach a point where we need to do something different.
I use an integrated approach to explore problems, ease communication and to make a space for new perspectives, hope and change.
Training, qualifications & experience
BA History and Theory of Art
MA Relationship Therapy
Certificate in Counselling Skills for children and teenagers, using the Arts
My MA was with the Relate Institute and was in family and couple therapy.
I established an integrated approach drawing from systemic and psychodynamic ideas.
My training covered many areas including working with anxiety, depression and bipolar, working with a sexual focus; dealing with issues such as difference of desire, loss of intimacy and the expression of sexuality in relationships.
I have worked with couples and individuals from their twenties to their eighties, from many backgrounds and all walks of life.
I am also trained in Psyche and Soma: using story, imagination and movement in therapy. I am a registered Sesame Practitioner. I have run workshops for those in the helping professions. I believe that accessing playfulness and creativity through movement and story re-balances us and restores our energy and wisdom.
I consider it a privilege to work together with what is important to you.
