About me

About Me
Hello my name is Helen, welcome to my profile.

I qualified as a Counsellor because, in previous jobs, people found me easy to talk to and to tell me their problems. I wanted to be able to say or do something to help but didn’t know how. After experiencing some difficult times in my life, and not wanting to ‘burden’ family and friends, I went to see a counsellor myself. This helped me enormously; it also helped me to realise that being a Counsellor is what I wanted to be so that I can put my skill as a listener into something positive.
It has been my privilege to have worked with varying issues, including, but not exclusively: -anxiety, bereavement, addiction, fear, guilt, rape, sexuality, pre and post-natal uncertainty.  I have worked with Forces veterans, families and carers of people with a wide range of problems which include, Dementia, Alzheimers, Autism/Aspegers and Parkinsons Disease.

As a Humanistic Counsellor, I believe that it is you, the client, that has the answers.  My work is to explore with you and draw out the answers you seek and to help you reach your full potential. I may challenge your thought processes and examine past events to find out where those thoughts originate, but I do not dwell on the past as it cannot be changed, and to gain insight into a deeper understanding of the cause of a particular problem.
My work with you is confidential and non-judgemental.

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 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.

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.
