About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I'm Helen, thank you for looking at my profile.

I have over 14 years counselling experience in settings including GP surgeries, charities and private practice. I've been awarded Individual Accreditation by the BACP having demonstrated high standards of competent and ethical practice.

I draw from a range of approaches to provide the right help for you. Models I've studied include, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). I am also a Mindfulness teacher.

As well as offering everyone a warm, safe space in which you can experience being listened to deeply and understood, I am able to adapt my approach to suit your particular needs and goals. This might include working to help you develop a greater understanding of your issues, situation or self, or working more actively to help you develop solutions or coping strategies. 


Practice description

I am currently offering sessions both online using Zoom and in-person in my discreet, COVID-secure office in the centre of Shrewsbury.

We would 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 would like 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 how to best help you in subsequent sessions.

At the end of the first session you may decide to book another appointment, 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 offer supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors, either in-person or online.

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

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

Practice description

I have over fourteen years’ experience working as a counsellor in a variety of settings, including GP surgeries, counselling charities, employee assistance programmes and in private practice. I have held Individual Accreditation status with the BACP for ten years. I completed my PGCert Level 7 in Clinical Supervision with Derby University six years ago.

Initially I trained as a Person-Centred counsellor and have since studied Psychodynamic and 3rd Wave CBT approaches including Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focussed Therapy. I am able to offer pure Person Centred or integrative supervision.

My first session

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions, or would like to arrange an initial (free) session to explore how it might be to work together.
