About me and my therapy practice
Hello there. I’m Helen (she/her) and I’m a humanistic counselling therapist. I believe that you are the expert in your own experience and in our work together, I can help you to explore any aspect of your lived experience that you want to heal from or understand more about. Through this exploration we can work together to find personal meaning and healing. All of your unique needs and experiences are valid and welcome in our sessions.
Sometimes, life can feel overwhelming. It may be that you are experiencing feelings of anxiety, stress or depression. Perhaps you want to explore current or past relationships or events that are causing you pain or distress. It could be that you are feeling unfulfilled or find it difficult to get your needs met or to express all the authentic parts of who you are.
My intention is to offer a reflective and confidential space and relationship focused on safety, where you can slow down, where you can talk, think, feel and be however you want to be. Together we can work out what you might need from our time together and find ways for you to feel more fulfilled, authentic and at home in yourself and in your body.
I take a trauma-informed, consensual, anti-racist and anti-oppressive approach to my work. I am aligned with and affirmative of people of all genders and sexualities. I hold in my awareness that our experiences and feelings are influenced by many psychological, biological and social factors including current and intergenerational cultural, racial, political and systemic oppression and trauma.
I hold respect, compassion and kindness at the centre of my work and aim to provide an opportunity for you to take up space, to be seen and to be heard. Through the therapeutic relationship that we develop together and the tools that you can take from our sessions into other parts of your life, my hope and intention is that you can find healing.
I look forward to meeting you.
I offer both short-term (6, 12 or 24 weeks) and long term open-ended therapy. I primarily work face to face in a comfortable and accessible therapy room in central Brighton. I also offer online sessions via Zoom.
