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 with Chichester University. I also have a DipSup (Diploma in Supervision) from the Link Centre in Sussex. I have worked as an counsellor for 9 years and assessor for 6 years for a charity in West Sussex. Before that I worked for an organisation, funded by the NHS, that supported families of people with substance misuse. I also have my private practice.


I qualified as a Counsellor because after experiencing some difficult times in my life, and not wanting to ‘burden’ family and friends, I found the courage to see a counsellor myself. This helped me enormously and I wanted to be able to give others, the opportunity to make a difference to their lives.


It has been my privilege to work with clients who have experienced varying issues, including, but not limited to:- suicidal thoughts, bereavement, 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/Aspergers and Parkinson’s Disease.

About Counselling
As a Humanistic Counsellor, I will work with you in a confidential and non-judgemental space to explore and challenge your thoughts and processes.

As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I work within their Ethical Framework.

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.

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.

Accessibility

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.
