Hi, I'm Helen. I get life isn’t always easy & some things can feel so overwhelming, painful & difficult. Is something preventing you from leading the meaningful & contented life we all strive for? It could be something from your past that is having an effect on how you feel today. Perhaps there is something going on right now that needs airing, exploring & working through. Sometimes the future can be feel scary, bleak or even pointless. It could be that you just don’t feel quite right. Having a safe, non-judgemental space to be open, honest & true can help make the process feel less like a spaghetti junction in our minds.

Are you experiencing concerns about your relationship? Have you been through a crisis such as the discovery of an affair, unmanageable conflict, or are just having a feeling that something doesn't feel quite right? Talking things through with a couples counsellor can help you gain a better understanding of unhelpful patterns in your relationship. If you are undergoing fertility treatment or experiencing fertility issues, I can offer support and therapeutic counselling. For those who have undergone fertility treatment which has been unsuccessful, counselling can be helpful to process the painful feelings of disappointment and loss.

I work with people who are having trouble with relationships. This could be a romantic relationship, but it could be other family members, children, colleagues and friends. When things aren't working out, and perhaps emotions are high, it's hard to think straight and know what to do next. Worry about relationships also seeps into other areas of your life, making things more difficult all round. It could show up as anxiety, worry or a loss of self, feeling as though you don't know who you are anymore.

Life not turned out how you had expected or hoped? Something not sitting right? A niggling thought or unrest within you? Happiness feels out of reach? Having experienced my own, at times, bumpy journey it has given me a fierce and unshakeable belief that change is possible in us all and we all have the potential to have a life beyond our wildest dreams! That’s not always to say we get what we may have fantasised about but that we work on ourselves; and as we embark on this our dreams change and they become reachable as we become more teachable and learn about the authentic us and what we really want

If you are struggling with intense feelings of fear, anxiety and sadness and if you find yourself full of panic, despair and frustration you may be trying to understand why you are trapped in these feelings much of the time. If you ruminate on situations, worry about past events, struggle to connect to those in your life and find your days consumed by worry, anger and stress, then a period of therapy may help you to gain insight into the origins of your emotional distress.

Sometimes life can be tough and worries can become too much for children, young people and the adults in their lives. A child and adolescent trained psychotherapist can listen carefully and think together with each person to help make sense of the difficulties. Research suggests that psychotherapy has longer term effects and that even when you finish you will have a memory of your therapy and your therapist which does not go away. Psychotherapy is not just about clearing up symptoms but is concerned with overall long term development for all.

I understand that deciding to start counselling and therapy can feel like a big step, from the start of therapy I encourage my clients to feel empowered through the therapy process. It may be that you've lost a loved one, experiencing family issues, relationship breakdown, struggling with anxiety or work-place stress. It's common to be experiencing a few of these life issues at the same time, which can lead to overwhelm and burnout. As a psychotherapist I aim to offer a tailored approach to each client in therapy sessions.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
