About me

Hello my name is Helen and thank you for visiting my profile.

I am an accredited and registered member of the BACP with over 17 years experience, practising as an integrative counsellor/psychotherapist Supervisor and CPD trainer and I am a practice partner at Macclesfield Counselling & Training Centre.

First and foremost I am passionate about being able to offer warm, empathic and relational counselling where you will feel heard and understood in a confidential space, space where you can safely explore personal difficulties and be given the time and support to help you take more control of your life.

As a counsellor I understand that life happens sometimes and many of us experience difficulties or distress of one kind or another in life, it's an inevitable part of being human.

This may be the result of stressful circumstances, a personal loss or personal relationship difficulties, health issues, a change of situation or job, general dissatisfaction with life or loss of purpose or direction.

Choosing the right counsellor can feel very daunting and a bit confusing and we can sometimes be concerned that this means that there is something wrong with us or that other people may judge us for wanting to seek support at this time.

So please do look through my profile and website www.macclesfieldcounselling.co.uk where many of your questions about what to expect at your first session can be answered before you take your first step towards considering an initial appointment and also further details of my practice and experience can be viewed.

At your intial session this will give you the opportunity to see in person if I am the right counsellor for you and that you feel I am someone whom you could undertake a counselling relationship with, but there is no obligation to continue after your first session if you do not wish to.

At the practice we offer counselling sessions on a bespoke level in terms of what you feel you need in terms of the number of sessions which can be taken weekly of fortnightly and I offer daytime and some evening appointments.

My Background experience:

Manchester Rape Crisis - Therapist, Trainer - Trustee - former Counselling Centre Co-ordinator

Macclesfield Counselling & Training Centre - Practice Partner, Therapist, Supervisor, Trainer.       

"When I first embarked on my professional training in 1999, private counselling and accessing counselling was something that was little talked about and often people did not know where to source a counselling service confidentially and quickly.

I felt very passionate about setting up a private centre and service in the Macclesfield area which is called Macclesfield Counselling and Training Centre and in particular it being a centre that could offer appointments quickly and also that it would be resource for other counselling practitioners, which is why we offer training courses and master classes.

In addition to my private work I have also practised as both a therapist and trainer since 2006 within a specialist sexual violence centre in the Greater Manchester area, specialising in helping individuals affected by trauma related concerns and in addition to my key role within Macclesfield Counselling, I also offer my time to contribute within my role as a trustee.
