Therapeutic Services

Hi, I’m Helen, a fully qualified integrative Counsellor and Therapist covering Altrincham, Hale and surrounding areas.

I have many years’ experience providing therapy and I believe in working with clients to understand their concerns in a friendly and non-judgemental manner. My experience has been gained working in the NHS as well as the private and voluntary sectors. I have had the opportunity to work with adults and young people with such issues as adult mental health, trauma, gender identity, anxiety, health anxiety, addiction, stress, relationships and women’s mental health and well-being.

I offer a combined approach to therapy, working face to face, (or online such as zoom) and believe in building a trusting and safe working relationship to explore and analyse issues. This allows me to establish a collaborative way of working to identify the areas of concern which can then be processed through therapy. The combined approach allows me to draw upon a number of evidence-based therapeutic models, including Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) alongside Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA), EMDR and DBT.

I am registered with the professional bodies, British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and British Psychological Society (BPS), undertaking professional supervision and I will shortly qualify as a Counselling Psychologist. This will allow me to offer more in depth analysis and a broader range of therapeutic solutions.

I offer both face to face and online therapy, and I’m also a qualified Clinical Supervisor for counselling students and colleagues

My personal journey has allowed knowledge, wisdom, kindness with a sense of humour to influence my approach as a therapist. If you would like to contact me we can discuss your concerns and I can offer insights as to how I can help.

I offer therapy sessions face to face or online via zoom
