Hi! My name is Helen Martin-Smith. I am a fully qualified counsellor working with people aged 16 up to those in later life.
Counselling can give you the opportunity to pause, breathe, reflect, and be heard. A rare opportunity in todays hectic and chaotic world.
I aim to offer you a warm and welcoming safe space where you feel able talk freely, without judgement or criticism.
Through building a trusting relationship we can work together with whatever issues you bring and find understanding of your feelings, behaviours and actions.
We all experience life in different ways, and for this reason I feel it is important to work with your individuality in a way that suits you.
Being an integrative counsellor means I can pull from the different approaches in order to work with you in a way that will suit your needs.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and work within the BACP Ethical Framework.
I offer one-to-one counselling in Midsomer Norton, Bristol and Bath. I am also able to offer counselling via Skype. The amount of sessions you can have is open ended giving you the freedom to explore your issues at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

I hold a couple of concessionary spaces for full time students or those on low income.
