About me

About Me

Hello and welcome to my profile page.

My name is Helen and I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Humanistic Counselling and a DipSup (Diploma in Supervision). I currently work for Worthing Counselling Centre and I have worked as an volunteer counsellor for 12 years and assessor for 9 years for charities in West Sussex. Before that I worked for an organisation, funded by the NHS, that supported friends and families of people with substance misuse. I also have my private practice.

It has been my privilege to work with clients of different ages, cultures and backgrounds who have experienced varying issues, I do not believe counselling should be a one size fits all experience, so I tailor your therapy to suit you and believe it is you, the client, who has the key to unlocking the issues that are causing you distress.

About Counselling
As a Humanistic Counsellor, I will work with you in a confidential and non-judgemental space to explore your thoughts and processes and to help you navigate your journey and any changes you would like to make in your life.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and I work within their Ethical Framework which can be found online under www.bacp.co.uk.

Please feel free to call or email for an appointment. If you ring and my voicemail kicks in, please do leave a message with your name and contact number as I may be with someone. I will return your call as soon as I can.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
