Hello – my name is Helen. I understand fully that it can be very daunting making contact initially with a counsellor so thank you for looking at my profile. Many people will be trying to cope with everyday issues such as, bereavement, anxiety, self-esteem, loss of any kind, stress, and trauma. We can also feel sad and unhappy and not really understand why. If you are struggling for any reason. it can become overwhelming. No problem is 'too small or too big' for us to talk about, just take that first step and contact me. I have experience with bereavement and loss of different kinds, having worked at St Richards Hospice for over three years.
I offer a 30-minute free 'getting to know you' session. This is important for you to get a feel for me, how I work, and where I work. It also enables us both to decide if we think we can work together. The first step is for you to email or call me and we can go from there. My premises are in the centre of Evesham away from the main road. The rooms are quiet and comfortable with lovely oak beams and I also have a waiting room.
I am considered by others to be a kind, considerate and caring person. I am qualified as a Person Centred and Integrative counsellor. This means that I will not be telling you what to do, but together we explore what is worrying you. I give you a safe, confidential, non-judgemental area to do this together. I consider counselling as a process in which, together we 'untangle' your ball of emotions slowly and at your pace. I consider you to be 'in charge' and in time we make sense of your feelings along with acceptance and further understanding of your experiences. In time you will be able to move forward and gain coping strategies for the future.
My past events and life situations led me to want to become a therapist and help other people find themselves in a better place with their thoughts and feelings. After having counselling myself, I realised that at times talking to friends and family, however helpful they try to be, sometimes was not enough. Telling them my inner most fears was not possible, and that was where I found counselling to be so helpful. Come and see me and let’s start the exciting journey for you together.
