Hi my name is Helen, welcome to my profile page. I particularly work with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, sadness, stress, low self esteem, relationship issues, and all kinds of loss. Together we can explore difficulties and challenges you may be experiencing in a safe and supportive way. Sharing your thoughts and feelings can be the first step to reshaping your personal story and bring lasting change to your life. My aim is to help you gain emotional strength and a greater sense of self.
The past year has brought many new challenges and highlighted existing ones. Loss of freedoms we took for granted impacting us all in different ways, coupled with personal losses for many. Loss can take shape in many different aspects of our life. Loss of a loved one due to bereavement/ loss of a relationship/ divorce / separation/ loss of self esteem/ self worth/ identity (Who am I) loss of your business or Job / loss of a house or home/ loss of a beloved pet. The pain and emotion we feel as a result of loss are never easy. I have personally experienced loss that had had a major impact on my life, propelling me to the work I do today.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Associaton for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I abide by their ethical framework which ensures you receive professional and safe therapy.
My training as an integrative counsellor enables me to access different interventions which can be tailored to benefit and support each individual and unique client. My models include person-centred therapy, Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic therapy. I may work with you in a creative way if we decide together that this could be of benefit to you.
If you feel someone to listen and support your person journey, help you through your healing process towards lasting change, could be of benefit to you, then please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you

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.
