Helping you find your way in difficult times.
My name is Helen and I am a professionally qualified and experienced therapeutic counsellor in Camberley, Surrey offering one to one counselling for adults and young people aged 16 to 18 in the local area including Fleet, Farnborough, Sandhurst, Ascot, Windlesham and Guildford.
You may be struggling with anxiety, stress, self confidence, depression, relationships, bereavement, anger or loneliness? I offer a warm, sensitive and confidential space to be heard and a client led approach without judgement to help you explore your thoughts and feelings.
I am professionally qualified and experienced in offering therapy through face to face, online and via telephone counselling sessions.
How can counselling help?
Sometimes it can be difficult or impossible to talk to family or friends about what is going on for you. Counselling offers you a safe space to talk confidentially to a professionally trained counsellor about what is troubling you.
Initial Telephone Consultation
Finding the right counsellor and one you can trust is really important and so I offer a free initial telephone consultation to find out about you and for you to see if I am the right fit and can offer you the support you need.
Every client is different and so I really listen to each client's needs and what they would like to achieve in counselling. I offer a confidential and supportive space to be heard and accept my clients for they are. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their Ethical Framework.
As a professionally trained integrative counsellor I am experienced in using different counselling approaches which means I can take an individual approach to meet each client's individual needs. I am also trained in using creative resources in therapy as some clients find this way of working helpful to think about thoughts and feelings.
Working together with my clients, we hold regular reviews to reflect on the goals for therapy, think about how the counselling is going and to see if having more sessions could be helpful.
How do sessions work?
We meet weekly usually and each session lasts for fifty minutes. The number of therapy sessions is completely your choice. Often we agree on an initial number (for example 6) and then we review to see how things are going and whether more sessions would be helpful to you. But you can also stop counselling at any time.
Will counselling work for me?
When we have our initial telephone consultation, this will help you decide if counselling could be right for you. Many people find counselling helps them feel more comfortable in themselves and more able to cope with their problems, but it might not suit everyone.
If you think you might be interested in seeing if counselling could be helpful, please contact me for a free initial telephone consultation.

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.
