Helen Muniappa. Person Centred. Dip Couns. MBACP Registered
My name is Helen Muniappa. I am a Person-Centred counsellor based in Bramcote Nottingham.
If you are feeling depressed or anxious, feel like you have lost touch with yourself through life's ups and downs, feel like something is wrong or maybe want to make changes in your life and need support to do so.
These issues and many others, can throw us off course and we can lose ourselves and need support through difficult times. Or maybe, you might feel like you just need someone to talk to about what's going on for you.
Counselling is an opportunity to reconnect with yourself and explore what matters most to you to help you to understand yourself better.
Asking for help for the first time can feel like a daunting experience, one that I can help you with by offering you an accepting, understanding, genuine relationship, with a space that is yours. Being fully listened to without judgement can be a rare experience, one that counselling can offer you.
Counselling is your space for you to share what is important for you in your time and at your own pace.

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.

Areas of counselling I deal with
The counselling relationship is an important one, you may want to talk about a particular problem you are trying to understand, or perhaps you simply would just like to talk.
Whatever your reason, I feel it is necessary for you to feel happy and comfortable with me as your counsellor.
Therefore, i offer an initial first session at a reduced fee of £20, in which you can share your thoughts, feelings and talk about the difficulties you are experiencing.
I work with adults (over 18) on a face-to-face basis, online or telephone counselling. My fees are as follows:
Initial 60 minute Session: £20
Subsequent 60-Minute Sessions: £40
Discounted Rate for Students and NHS Key workers: £30
Fees are payable by cash at the beginning or end of each session, or by bank transfer 24 hours prior to a session. Sessions work on a weekly basis, however this can be flexible to meet your needs.
All calls and emails are answered by myself in strict confidence.
