Helen D Counselling and Psychotherapy in Hersham, Surrey and Online

What my clients would like you to know....

"It took me a long time to take the first step in addressing my past traumas but Helen genuinely put me at ease from our first conversation. She has enabled me to challenge my own thought processes and reach more peaceful conclusions.
The work we have done has been nothing short of transformative and I have her to thank for helping me to uncover a more resilient, happy and confident version of myself. I think that very first step was probably the hardest but it was definitely worth it, and I would whole heartedly recommend Helen to anyone else thinking about seeking counselling."

Holly, Hampshire. October 2022.

“Helen is a truly kind and beautiful soul. Countless times where I felt I was going crazy, she helped me to see that my feelings were real and valid, without any judgment. She gently guided me through acceptance of parts of my life that I cant change, and resolutions for things that I can.
I have never met anyone that understands and listens as well as Helen, and she made me feel so comfortable in her presence, I’d recommend her to everyone!”

"I came across Helen through recommendations and from the first moment I spoke with her I knew I had found my therapist. I was battling with anxiety and she was warm and made me completely at ease, gave me space to talk to understand myself better. I would come back to her again in a heartbeat for any mental health issues in the future and I would recommend her to anyone feeling they need to approach counselling for their problems. Thank you Helen!".

Mrs B, Surrey. March 2021
"I had been in and out of therapy for a few years when I found Helen. From the first session, Helen was warm, empathetic and held a safe space for me to explore the challenges I was facing in my life and with my mental health.
Helen is a truly remarkable therapist. She has armed me with the tools I need to tackle my recovery from post natal depression and anxiety. I felt like I could talk to Helen about anything and she became like a cheerleader, right behind me and rooting for me. I can’t thank you enough Helen for the nine months we spent talking. Helen helped me to push for the right medical treatment and I am now on the road to recovery from an illness that had dominated my life for years.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Helen to anyone struggling with their mental health, she’s amazing!"

"I have to be honest, I found it hard to start the process of even reaching out for counselling, probably because I didn’t want to face my issues. Reaching out to Helen was a big step, but she really made me feel comfortable on the phone and through messages, so this made it so much easier for me to meet her.
I had 12 sessions with Helen, and was so pleased with all the positive changes I made during this time. She really helped me unpick my issues, and gave me the space to identify how I could manage things better to help myself.
I have already been recommending Helen to anyone that asks for support."

Michelle, Surrey. May 2020.
"Counselling with Helen helped me untangle things that had become muddled in my head. Being given a safe, calm and supportive space in which to talk things through has given me a massive sense of freedom. I was able to clarify things and understand them for what they were. They are no longer mixed up, but neatly compartmentalised and I feel I understand them each on their own individual merit now and I am no longer overwhelmed by them. As a result, I feel as though I have a greater sense of who I am and a new found freedom.
Helen is a warm, compassionate and highly effective Counsellor who facilitates a beautiful process with a sympathetic and professional manner."

Mrs F, Surrey. July 2019
"I met with Helen over 12 sessions and was initially unsure how counselling would help me. It has been hugely beneficial after having had to deal with grief from a recent  family bereavement, compounded by a number of other different stresses. Helen has been really supportive and I feel more calm and ordered in my thinking.
Thank you, Helen, for listening and helping me work through my problems. It has been a really positive experience."

Mr M, Hersham. May 2019
"Just want to say a massive thank you, for everything you have done for me. I feel so much better in myself, and I feel I have progressed so much. For myself, but for others in my life also. You have really made a difference to my life."

"I first came to Helen about some generalised anxiety issues around motherhood and then went on to work through some very difficult issues in my marriage. Helen has been kind, listened attentively and was a good support whilst I battled feelings of depression and anxiety. I always came away from our sessions feeling stronger and clearer and would recommend Helen to anyone facing challenging times in their life."

“I had just been made redundant when I reached out to Helen for some support with my confidence and lack of self-esteem. As anyone who has been made redundant before will attest, the whole process can leave you feeling demoralised and inhibits you from progressing on from the situation. That is what Helen and I worked on for the past ten months, and we worked through my issues and concerns to get me to a far better place than where I was. Thank you for your support and understanding through this time. I do not believe I would be where I am without it.”

T.G, Basingstoke. August 2018
"I would like to thank you so much for your help - your kind and thoughtful assessments have been invaluable for me in getting some perspective on my life. I will miss our sessions, but I am looking forward to approaching life with a more positive and happy attitude and the ability to roll with the punches that life inevitably throws at us."

"I saw Helen over 12 sessions. I was not sure what effect counselling would have, but felt like I needed to get quite a lot of things out of my head.

Helen's approach was gentle but effective. She helped me work through problems in one particularly tricky personal relationship. The situation was making me really stressed and anxious, but I now feel so much better.
I now feel so much less anxiety, I'm sleeping better and overall I feel much more relaxed. I would highly recommend her to anyone."

"I was so nervous about seeing a counsellor, I put it off for years, Helen made me feel so comfortable that those nerves disappeared very quickly.

Working with Helen has made a big difference in my life and I would highly recommend her."

Donna, Walton on Thames. September 2017
"I first went to visit Helen at an incredibly low point in my life. I had been struggling with many problems, including family issues from the past and a general inability to manage my stress levels as a mother. From the beginning Helen was kind and just listened without any judgement. I felt like it was the first time I had truly been able to tell someone how I felt about so many things.

The simple act of talking to her has given me a new perspective on my day to day worries, has given me the chance to talk about a past relationship which was still affecting me, and helped me to see a way of moving on from other past events in my life.

Best of all I feel excited about rediscovering who I am, and my conversations and sessions with Helen has definitely made this possible."

"I got to a point where, although I have a lovely life, there was a situation from my past I just wanted to talk to a stranger about. I wanted to not feel lonely about it anymore and I wanted to feel free from it.

After a few months of weekly sessions with Helen that is exactly how I feel, free. She allowed me to talk openly and in my own time. We dissected it together and came up with solutions that I felt comfortable with. Through conversation and without prejudice we pieced together puzzle pieces which assisted me in understanding how I had been feeling.

I was that typical person that never thought I would go to counselling. I'm a strong person and felt like I could overcome anything.
Thank you Helen for supporting me through something I know I would never have been able to understand on my own. It's lovely to have gained the confidence to move on."
