Helen Roshier, PGDip, FPC and BACP (Registered)
I am a professionally qualified and experienced psychotherapist offering a safe and non-judgemental space to explore your thoughts and feelings. My practice in based in two locations. One in a comfortable room 5 minutes walk from Angel tube station and the other in a quiet setting close to Kentish Town tube station. I trained at the leading UK institution WPF Therapy.
I provide long and short term therapy and have experience working in a variety of settings and with a wide range of people with diverse problems including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, repeating patterns of behaviour and relationship problems (home, work, family).
My approach is psychodynamic, which means sessions focus on your unconscious and early relationships to gain insight into your current moods, behaviour and decisions. This process helps to attain a more reflective and objective perspective on your life and a better capacity to relate to yourself and others. All content within sessions is strictly confidential.
Please see my website for more information about me and my service.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the leading UK institution WPF Therapy and am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling). I abide by the professional code of ethics set out by these bodies.
Therapy is a very individual venture and it is essential that you feel comfortable with your therapist. That is why I suggest that we meet initially for us to discover whether we can work together and if you require short term or open-ended therapy.
Our initial consultation lasts an hour or so. During that time, you can tell me what is troubling you and we can discuss our thoughts about working with each other. This session will not obligate you in any way but will help you decide whether further therapy is the right path for you.
If we agree to work together, we will meet regularly at the same time each week for 50 minutes.
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.
