I am an experienced and qualified integrative therapist and therefore able to draw upon a range of therapies (including person-centered, psychodynamic and CBT) and tailor them to meet your individual needs. I am able to provide short-term, long-term and time-limited therapy.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (RMBACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I have regular supervision, undertake continuous professional development (CPD) and am fully insured.
It's easy to get started, just give me a call or send me an email and we can agree a time for a free 20-minute telephone consultation to help you decide if counselling is the right form of support for you.
The next stage is to agree a time and day to meet for our sessions which will last for 50 minutes (usually weekly). Counselling rooms are located in central Farnham, Surrey (with nearby parking facilities and numerous links to public transport).
Cost: £45 within clinic hours (Monday evening and Tuesday afternoon) and £50 outside clinic hours, with some concessions for those on a low income or students.
* I also specialise in working with the elderly and can provide 1:1 sessions in residential care homes in Farnham and the surrounding area. Please contact me for further information and costs.

Counselling can help you view your life through a different lens; to see the positives that exist and improve your ability to develop resilience when dealing with difficult or challenging circumstances. Working with a counsellor can also enable you to:
"I just wanted to thank you for having had such a positive effect on my outlook to life. Our weekly chats and the ideas and "tools" that you have introduced have been instrumental in my new positivity and I find myself looking forward to the future - rather than thinking that there may not be one!"
"I felt connected with Helen and speaking with a therapist has helped considerably. Thank you."
"I didn't know what to expect, but Helen has helped me to understand myself and my feelings for the first time in years, so thank you"
"I felt that the therapy helped me a lot. More than I was expecting. Thanks."
