About me and my therapy practice

Welcome! I am a  Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor and an Accredited, Registered member of BACP. I have over 11 years counselling experience working in a variety of settings, including GP surgeries, voluntary sector organisations, Employee Assistance Programmes and private practice.

- I offer face to face counselling for adults and young people aged sixteen and over. I can usually offer you an appointment within 7 days. 

- Due to Covid-19, I am currently offering sessions online using Zoom, a simple, secure and stable video-conferencing platform. Sessions are available between 9am and 9pm.

-  I have studied a range of therapeutic models including Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness and Self-Compassion based approaches .

- Experience tells me that there is no such thing as a typical client - certain types of counselling suit some people more than others, so I draw from a range of approaches to provide the right help for you.

- We would meet in a discreet, comfortable consulting room in the centre of Shrewsbury.

- We will decide together how many sessions you are likely to need to achieve your goals. Often we can make a difference in as few as 6 sessions, but more can be available if needed.

If you have any questions or need more information please feel free to get in touch.

My first session

 The first appointment is an opportunity for you to see if you feel comfortable talking with me, gives you an experience of counselling and enables you to ask any questions you may have about the process. It also allows me to make a thorough assessment of your situation and goals so that I can figure out what is most likely to be helpful for you moving forwards.

At the end of the first session you may decide to book further sessions, or choose to go away and reflect on your experience before deciding whether or not to continue.

About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Helen. I work full-time in private practice offering counselling, supervision and Mindful Self-Compassion Courses.

I offer supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors. I am also open to supporting supervisees from other helping professions.

Qualifications and Experience

I am a BACP accredited counsellor with over 3000 hours client experience. I have worked in a variety of settings, including GP surgeries, counselling charities and private practice. I studied for my PGCert Level 7 in Clinical Supervision with Derby University.

Initially I trained as a Person Centred counsellor and have since studied Psychodynamic and 3rd Wave CBT approaches. I am able to offer pure Person Centred or integrative supervision.

Having worked as the Director of a local counselling charity which had BACP Service Accreditation, I have an in-depth understanding of clinical, professional and ethical standards. I also have a strong commitment to my own on-going professional development as a counsellor and a supervisor.

Contact and Fees

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have an enquiry about supervision, or would like to arrange an initial session to explore how it might be to work together on 07817 124531

I charge £40 an hour or £60 for 1.5 hours.

Practice description

I believe that I can support you to be the best counsellor you can be through a positive working relationship. I provide a warm, safe space for you to talk freely and in confidence about your work, offering you emotional support, alongside guidance where appropriate.

Above all, for me, supervision is a collaborative, developmental and hopefully enjoyable process.

My first session

During the first session we would spend some time getting to know each other and talking about how we work. We would begin to explore our hopes and expectations of the supervisory relationship. We would also think about what would be important to include in a Working Agreement. 

At the end of the first session you may choose to continue and book further sessions, but you will also be given the option to go away and reflect on how you experienced our meeting before making a decision.
