About me and my therapy practice
Hello there. I'm Helena, a friendly, qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. If you are feeling unsteady, lacking strength or if you are mentally struggling to "bounce back" then get in touch. I provide an easy to access counselling and psychotherapy service for adults aged 18 years and upwards. 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 private, self contained and discreet.
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 uncomfortable or perhaps they feel they don’t want to be a burden. Counselling provides a confidential space for you to explore the difficulties you have been grappling with and it’s an opportunity for you to discuss ways in which to overcome them.
My Approach - I am an Integrative Therapist which means that I tailor my practice to suit your needs by drawing from a variety of counselling theories. 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. This also gives you a chance to decide if we can work together and discuss what you'd like to achieve from therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience - I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I qualified with a first class BA Honours degree in Integrative Relational Psychotherapy and Counselling. 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.
I offer spacious rooms in a beautiful setting. You will feel at ease the moment you enter the Practice. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and immaculate.
My first session
The first session will be a bit longer, up to one and a half hours. I hope in this session to reassure you in the first instance and to give you hope and confidence that this is the potential start of things turning around for you.
