Psychotherapist and Counsellor, Wells , Glastonbury, Somerset
Hello, my name is Helen and I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist providing psychotherapy and counselling to adults over eighteen. I work face to face and by phone or Zoom if appropriate.
Meeting Together for Psychotherapy and Counselling
As an experienced psychotherapist I understand how important it is to feel safe and supported when speaking about painful or difficult experiences and issues. For this reason you are very welcome to call or email me as an initial step in considering whether you would like to go forward with some sessions. I offer a one-off consultation meeting where you can let me know more about what brings you to consider psychotherapy and counselling. I can explain a bit more about how I work and answer any questions you might have. This initial stage can help us lay the foundation to developing a trusting working relationship.
Therapy Tailored to You
Each life journey is unique and our feelings about our experiences differ from person to person. Over the past ten years I have worked alongside many people through the psychotherapy/counselling process. The focus of our work together is to enable you to develop understanding and insight into the difficulties in your life and find your own unique way of moving forwards. I tailor my approach to your individual needs by using a range of approaches that are right for you. I also use mindful presence and reflection and the importance of kindness in relationships to support our work together. This is an approach I have developed over time, as a humanistic and integrative psychotherapist.
What Can I Help You With?
I am able to help you with a broad range of feelings that you may be experiencing. This includes feelings arising from bereavement, loss or traumatic events: Problems with stress, depression, anxiety or confidence: Concerns arising from difficult childhood experiences: abuse, neglect or abandonment: Difficulties with self esteem, your sense of identity, difference and diversity: Problems with relationships and behavior such as eating disorders and addictions.
My psychotherapy/counselling practice is located just outside Wells near to Glastonbury, Shepton Mallet and Street.
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.
I also hold a number of spaces for clients who wish to work remotely, when this is appropriate.
I am able to offer disabled access by arrangement.
Training and Background
