About me and my therapy practice

Hi my name is Helen and I work with Young Children, Teenagers, Young People and Adults. I have 2 x confidential, therapy rooms in a private location, found between Sudbury (Suffolk) and Halstead (Essex) with free parking. I have one private, cosy, therapy room and I have a larger therapy room where I offer art and play therapy for younger children.

If you feel you would like to gain more self-confidence, a stronger sense of identity, help with anxiety, bullying, exam stress, building healthy interpersonal relationships or you feel your child could benefit from receiving some play therapy to help with their emotions, I can help.

I offer warmth, empathy and a safe, confidential therapeutic space to help you explore your feelings in a non-judgemental way, at your own pace. I offer a safe, confidential and caring environment to allow children to explore their thoughts / feelings using art and play.

I am a registered Member of BACP (MBACP) and follow their code of Ethics & Standards.

I understand that approaching a Counsellor could feel daunting, not knowing what to say or ask / wondering is this right for me/my child? That is ok. Please do contact me. I am happy to give a free 20 mins telephone consultation for us to get to know each other and to see if I could be of help to either you or your child. 

I offer a sliding scale fee system, please ask for more details.  I accept therapy payment via; card, bank transfer.
