Helen Strutt MBACP
As a fully trained counsellor I work with a wide range of emotional difficulties including relationship issues, generalised anxiety and depression, bipolar, SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), stress / work related conflicts, and family dilemmas. I’m also professionally trained in Bereavement Counselling.
Enjoy strong and rewarding relationships.
Experiencing anxiety? Improve your ability to bring calmness back into your life.
Enhance your ability to capture and hold the positive not the negative.
Become more understanding of what works for you and what doesn’t.
Improve your self-esteem and increase confidence.
I work with the Person Centred Approach of Counselling to help my clients review various aspects of their lives that they may find troublesome or painful with a view to bring about a new focus on their problems and subsequent change.
By exploring and learning to understand their feelings many of my clients have successfully found their own answers, become more self aware and experienced personal growth. Below are comments from some of my clients regarding the successful outcomes of their counselling.
- ‘My counselling with Helen allowed me to work through my anger and doubts about the future.'
- 'Helen helped me come to terms with not just my partners’ death but with myself.'
- ‘Because of her I recovered quickly and have some tools to carry on.’
- ‘She has left me able to think things through and to trust myself more.’
- ‘As my counsellor Helen helped me to understand how important it is to find time for myself.’
Your counselling will be confidential and within the development of our listening relationship you will find the space to express yourself, free of judgement or discrimination.
So if you’re feeling that life is just too stressful or overwhelming right now and that it's time to take control and change things, please get in touch.

I am a full and registered member of BACP and work within their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
