About me and my therapy practice
I offer individual and bespoke talking therapy through change, crisis, loss, bereavement, relationship and career challenges from a psychospiritual and holistic health perspective.
I am an established Counsellor, with a background in mentoring and coaching, and I work with clients who really want to uncover meaning from the therapy process and greater understanding about their life that they can take forwards in possibly new directions.
I realise it takes courage to contact a counsellor and I therefore want to offer you the assurance that I take what I do very seriously and abide by the strictest code of ethics.
I find that my clients experience greater self-realisation and positive change by working with me over a concentrated period of time but I do offer one off sessions for people to find out more and see if counselling will work for them.
I practice in St Albans from my peaceful private practice a mile from the centre of St Albans.
Testimonial from a recent client, AC:
"My experience of Helen's counselling was extremely positive. Helen immediately demonstrated advanced empathy when I was dealing with an upsetting bullying situation which of course resonated with other situations in my past and some of my present life.
I would not hesitate to recommend Helen if you needed warm yet entirely professional counselling".
I offer Zoom and telephone sessions due to current Covid restrictions; however, I will be reverting to face to face appointments as soon as safety permits. I work from a quiet private house in a well ventilated and comfortable attic room. Please note, my practice room is up two flights of stairs, so I regret that access is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.
My first session
I encourage my clients to use their sessions for whatever they need to speak about at the time. Sometimes, people feel that it is important to 'start at the beginning' and to give their story. At other times, people may be in distress and may want to devote the time to a current or pressing problem. I always encourage clients to ask any questions that they need to, especially if they haven't had counselling before.
