30th July - Update
Unfortunately I do not have any free appointments until the middle of September. If you would like to book an appointment for then, please let me know. I will update this page as soon as they become available. Many thanks, Helen.
We all have times in our lives when we are struggling and need some extra help and support.
With over 25 years experience of working within mental health, I work in a flexible and responsive way, drawing on a range of skills to help provide that support to empower you to tackle your problems.
I have a friendly but professional approach and firmly believe in the power of working together with clients to meet individual goals. Working collaboratively, we identify what you want to achieve and plan how we will work together to support you to make the changes needed to get you where you want to be.
Qualified in Counselling, Hi intensity CBT and EMDR, I draw on a wide range of approaches and techniques, in-line with NICE guidelines, to help us explore the preferred way forward for you and to provide the most appropriate intervention.
I offer a flat session rate regardless of the therapeutic intervention used, so you don't need to make a decision about which approach suits you best, based on cost.
Coming for therapy can be a daunting experience, so if you have any questions, or would like to book an appointment, please feel free to contact me.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies
The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists.
BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
