Online Counsellor
Helen

Hi, I'm Helen. I've been counselling for 3 years and have recently started working for TIC+. Before that I worked in the English department at a sixth form college, which I loved because I got to read students' stories and hear their ideas. At home I am a Supported Lodgings Host, which means that care leavers come to stay with me until they are ready to move on to independent living. I get to meet lots of amazing young people who are facing challenging circumstances but finding ways to build the lives they want.

Outside of work I spend time swimming, getting twisted up in yoga postures, and Go-Aping.

Training

I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling

Therapies Offered

I offer Person-Centred counselling, which means I follow your lead in the things we talk about. We'll work together to help your thoughts and feelings communicate with each other so you can get a clearer picture of what is happening for you.

If you are looking for ideas to help make practical changes, I am also trained in Brief Therapy and CBT.

I really enjoy learning new things and always want to develop my knowledge, especially in how our mind and body influence each other. I'm also interested in the importance of our friendship groups to our wellbeing and sense of who we are.

Membership of Professional Body

I am an accredited registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy www.bacp.co.uk(BACP – number 153233).

When I'm available online

I work online on Mondays and Wednesdays in the afternoon and evening.
