Hello there. I'm Helena, a friendly, qualified counsellor and psychotherapist.
If you are feeling unsteady, lacking strength or if you don't feel able to "bounce back" then get in touch. I provide an easy to access counselling and psychotherapy service for adults aged 18 years and upwards. To start you off, I offer a low rate initial consultation for all potential clients.
I am based in St Margarets, Twickenham. The Practice is 2 minutes walk from St Margarets Station or 10 minutes from Richmond or Twickenham Station. The consultation rooms are independent from the private surrounded residences. They are self contained and discreet.
In addition to my private practice, I work at a busy North London University and have until recently, worked for a number of years at a busy NHS GP Practice.
Why might you seek counselling or psychotherapy?
There are a number of reasons why individuals seek counselling. Some may find that talking about certain issues to friends or family is simply too hard. Counselling provides a comfortable space for you to explore the difficulties you have been grappling with and an opportunity to discuss ways in which to overcome them.
I am an Integrative Therapist which means that I use a variety of counselling styles that best suit your needs. In the initial consultation, we discuss what you can expect from counselling and how it will work. For most, the anticipation of taking the first step can be daunting but let me reassure you that it needn't be and I will do my very best to make you feel comfortable. The initial consultation also gives you a chance to decide if we can work together and discuss what you'd like to achieve from therapy.
