Counselling/ Psychotherapy for Women
Hello, my name is Helen and for as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a Counsellor and I feel so lucky, and privileged, to be doing a job that I love.
I am a Trauma-Informed Counsellor/Psychotherapist specialising in working with women who are struggling with challenges such as the following:
- childhood neglect
- birth trauma
- postnatal depression
- panic attacks or flashbacks
- loss of self
- emotional overwhelm
- trauma from abuse
- stress, depression, self-blame
- low self-esteem and negative life events
If you are struggling with these challenges, you may be experiencing some of the following:
- emotional numbness or an inability to identify feelings
- presence of a critical internal voice
- feelings of shame and/or guilt
- difficulty thinking clearly
- constantly on high alert
- inability to relax
- difficulty sleeping
- lack of confidence
You will find me on The Mummy Space website for the work I do specifically for mums.
My aim, as a Counsellor, is to offer you a unique environment where you can freely explore what’s going on for you. An opportunity, through exploration, to try and understand why you might be feeling the way you do. To increase your understanding of yourself through discussion, normalisation and reflection. In short, I want to help you to feel clearer, more confident and more able to discover a new way of being that feels right to you.
Many clients that come to me want me to take away the ‘chaos’ that’s going on inside their head, they want clarity of thought, less overwhelming emotions. By offering space and time away from the demands of life, my clients have the opportunity to ‘catch up’, to gain clarity of thought, to connect with feelings in a safe way, to grieve losses and to celebrate successes. This process of pausing and processing, is so important in order for life to continue in a different way. As a result, I find my clients rediscovering themselves, regaining confidence and creating a more balanced life.
My Humanistic approach puts you, the client, at the centre of the counselling process. I fully believe that you are the one who knows what is right for you, I am simply providing an empathic and non-judgemental environment within which to discover it.
I am an experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist offering an empathic, non-judgemental and confidential space where I can help you to explore issues in a private, quiet and relaxed environment.
Fully qualified, holding registered membership with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), a first degree in Psychology and a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
