Hi, I'm Helen, I am a qualified person centred counsellor and also qualified bereavement counsellor. My experience also includes helping people to deal with a range of issues such as lack of confidence, low self esteem, anxiety, and negative thoughts.
I know it can be difficult to reach out for help in fear of feeling judged or perceived differently from others but I believe that talking about and understanding our innermost feelings does bring relief can alleviate the stress we feel. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Hello, I’m Amanda; I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and offer counselling to children, young people and adults. I am able to help with a range of issues of which include anger, anxiety, depression, loss, low self-esteem, school issues, and relationship difficulties including family or work.
Like many people who become counsellors, I have had counselling myself and know first-hand how helpful it can be. It is my belief is that the therapeutic relationship can only be nurtured in a safe, non-judgemental and dependable environment. With this, I work carefully and respectfully, honouring your privacy, autonomy and independence along with your freedom and ability to make your own choices. I will support you while you explore your physical and emotional feelings, thoughts and behaviours and the contexts in which they arise.
I have experience working with children and young people within both Middle and High schools as part of a school counselling service offering counselling and emotional support to students from the age of 9 to 18 years. With this I am happy to work in a creative and flexible way, some young people are happy to sit and talk, while others may choose to explore their issues through play, creative medium or sand tray work.
I hold my own Professional Liability Insurance and a current DBS for working with both Children and Adults. I am also a registered member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
