I also include information regarding special arrangements which I have in place in order to provide therapy during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Working together in a Psychotherapy Counselling Process
As a qualified psychotherapist I work to provide a safe, secure relationship, in which it is possible to build trust and confidence to speak about life's most painful experiences. I offer a confidential unique therapy and counselling process for each person. Because each life journey will be different I work to understand your own perspective of your life experiences, what they have meant to you and what your hopes and dreams are for the future.
I am a Psychotherapist working within an integrative humanistic framework. This means that I use a number of approaches to fit the individual needs of each person. This is underpinned by mindful presence and reflection and the importance of kindness in relationships. In order to support you in this process I provide a therapy room set in a peaceful, healing, garden environment. This allows us to step back from many of life's everyday pressures and make room for change and transformation.
The sort of experiences we will be able to address in this work include bereavement, loss, trauma, stress, identity or self esteem issues, eating disorders, addictions, compulsive behaviour, depression and relationship problems.
I am a Psychotherapist with full clinical membership of The UK Council for Psychotherapy. (Helen Nickell-Travis MA Dip HIP) and I am listed on the national UKCP index of therapists around the country. I studied a Research Masters Degree for seven years with Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling a leading teaching institute, providing me with a very in depth training. The length of training allowed me to build extensive experience of working with clients, along with a deep understanding of approaches which are effective in supporting change in individuals' lives.
I have been a practising Somerset Psychotherapist for a number of years and have also worked for the Counselling department of The University of the West of England. My past experience includes supporting the activity team at Bristol Children's Hospital and working in other health and educational settings. I also have a background interest in art, wildlife and nature and their therapeutic value in our lives.
