Helen works in a person centred and humanistic way incorporating psychodynamic and integrative therapies. She offers a safe, warm and respectful environment in which clients are supported and gently challenged to empower themselves to take responsibility for their own lives as they seek to understand and accept themselves, gain insight to healing their traumas and engage in overcoming their difficulties.
The process of psychotherapy provides a personal space to identify, learn to manage and ultimately overcome emotional and mental difficulties while developing and empowering a new self awareness and understanding.
