Helen Ringrose-Clarke (registered MBACP)
Hello and thankyou for taking the time to explore my services and how I can help.
True: Being able to express your emotions is a strength, not a weakness.
Do you ever wish you understood yourself more, why you think the way you do and react in certain ways?
Often life can be difficult and challenging. Dealing with day to day stresses can become overwhelming and exhausting. When anxiety becomes too much, your coping strategies may not work as effectively and negative thoughts and emotions may spill out into other areas of your life, leaving you confused and anxious. At times, it may feel easier to try and hide or bury painful thoughts and emotions,but often they can resurface in other ways such as anger, panic and depression. Friends and family can offer support at these times but they may avoid the true issues that are troubling you in fear of upsetting you more. Do you ever feel that you're not being heard and understood? You may not wish to confide in others as you do not want to worry them. In counselling we can explore and reflect on your thoughts and feelings and begin to understand your true emotions in a safe, non judgemental environment.
What happens in therapy?
You're in control of your own therapy. Together we can discuss what you would like to achieve in your sessions and regularly review how you feel progression is being made. Sessions will last for 50 minutes and through regular weekly sessions we can work through the issues that are holding you back, allowing clarity and the opportunity for you to move forward in your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. This means I tailor my sessions to the individual client, using different types of therapy to suit a persons unique needs. No two people are the same therefore, no sessions are the same. I may use psychodynamic therapy to link your past to the present or CBT techniques to challenge negative thought processes. It is truly important that you are happy with the professional working relationship and it is my aim to ensure a high level of trust is established to enable deep emotions to be explored.
Your well-being is at the heart of what I do.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Whatever is on your mind, troubling you and leaving you feeling stuck can feel easier to bear through talk and reflection. The relief from allowing unresolved issues to be bought to the surface and spoken is key. It takes courage to embark a journey of self reflection and tackle painful thoughts but step by step you can get there.

I am dedicated to my profession and value the importance of talking and listening to my clients. My sessions are client led with the opportunity to engage in therapeutic activities that can provide insight and understanding about your inner self. Understanding your own true feelings means you are on the right path to becoming content and happy. This can benefit the other relationships in your life, build confidence and self esteem.
