About Helena

You may be feeling anxious about reaching out to someone with your concerns and difficulties and I can understand that as it takes a lot of courage to trust someone with your inner world, thoughts and feelings. What is it that you hope to get out of seeing a counsellor? Would you like to have a better night's sleep? Worry a bit less? Feel better about yourself? Be a bit happier? Counselling can help you to explore why you feel a certain way and do certain things that may help in the short term but lead to other problems in the long term. I can help you to navigate your life in a way that makes sense to you because there is always a reason why we think, feel or behave a certain way. My job is to work with you to discover what and why.

Why did you choose to become a therapist?

I chose to become a therapist because I have always been interested in psychology and human behaviour. wanted to understand why people do the things they do and that includes myself. Studying counselling gave me the opportunity to combine this interest with my ability to listen and be empathetic and attuned to the feelings of others.

Why do you think integrative therapy is the most effective form of therapy?

As an integrative counsellor I have a variety of methods to suit my clients’ needs and preferences, and I am able to come alongside you and form an alliance that makes it possible to explore thoughts, feelings and difficulties. Counselling can be a challenging process in itself and it takes courage to trust another person with your inner world. But ultimately it can be very rewarding and liberating; providing insight into behaviour, removing the blockages to change and promoting healing.

How would you describe your therapy session & approach?

I aim to provide a warm, welcoming and safe environment for you to talk about your concerns. My approach is very collaborative and person centred so it will be about what your goals and needs are. You set the agenda and go as fast or slowly as you feel comfortable with. When working with trauma the first thing we would work on is establishing safety and emotional regulation. We don't necessarily need to talk about what happened in order to help with how it is affecting you now.
