Are you feeling stressed, worried or sad? Is life feeling overwhelming or too challenging? Perhaps you are needing help to overcome anxiety, panic attacks, depression, are suffering low self-confidence or are experiencing relationship or family difficulties?
Whatever your reason for counselling, whether it's big or small...I am here to help.
I'm Helen-Melissa and I am an experienced, fully qualified BACP Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I work with individuals and couples and I offer the professional support you need when change feels too difficult to achieve alone.
As a counsellor, I provide a professional and confidential therapy service. I will work collaboratively with you to address any current problems you are facing and together we may also work though any unresolved issues from the past. I will draw upon several different therapy models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and tailor the way I work to suit your individual needs. In this way you can hope to gain the most from therapy and achieve real results which stay with you.
I offer professional help for all types of emotional distress such as:
- Anxiety & Stress
- Childhood Related Issues
- Panic Disorder
- Generalised Anxiety Disorder
- Relationship Issues
- Family Issues
- Anger Management
- Feeling Sad
- Low Self-esteem
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
- Physical Abuse
- Emotional Abuse
- Divorce and Separation
- Bipolar Disorder
- Work Related Issues
In addition to my Private Practice, I worked within the NHS counselling the staff of a large NHS Hospital and patients at a busy GP Surgery. Many of the people I help are referred to me via word of mouth and I also counsel a large number of Local Government workers. I have a wealth of experience working with different age groups, covering a wide range of difficulties and issues.
As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), I work in accordance with the Code of Ethics and Practice.
My qualifications are:
BA (Hons) Humanistic and Integrative Counselling (Higher 1st Class Honours)
DipHE Humanistic Counselling
Certificate in Counselling Skills
BACP Certificate of Proficency
