About me

Hi, I'm Helen.

I am an Integrative Counsellor, qualified to degree level in 2013.

My style is warm, conversational, collaborative and intuitive and I am committed to do what I can to make the the experience of therapy as effective as possible for you through a process that includes really listening to you, with genuine care and gentle challenging.

You do not need to be in crisis to reach out for therapy or to benefit from it. Maybe you finally feel ready to be supported? 

I am qualified to help with a range of issues, including anxiety, depression or low mood, self-esteem, trauma (see full list).

I see clients in a therapy room at the Quayside Wellbeing Clinic, a professional, modern and tranquil space right by the water, where you can talk in confidence. I can also offer sessions via Zoom.

I believe it is essential to find the right therapist/client relationship, so I therefore offer a free 20-minute consultation via Zoom.

I am also trained at postgraduate diploma level as a therapist for adults experiencing symptoms of Boarding School Syndrome (psychotherapy for ex-boarders). Please see my website for further info about this.

Wheelchair user access
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.
