Hello there, and  warm welcome to you and whatever is bringing you to this page. I understand how taking the brave first steps in counselling can feel really hard. Before going any further, you may be curious  to know a little about me. I am flawed, perhaps we all are when we look closely. I have spent time trying to work out what interpersonal relationships are about and what causes human distress, which led my pathway into training to become a counsellor.

My origins are in Yorkshire and I have spent many years in Norfolk and Suffolk. My favourite pastime is being outdoors, my walking boots are never far from me, a beautiful landscape feels like free art to me. I am married and spending time with my blended family is important. I enjoy painting, dancing, old buildings, and sometimes simply doing nothing.

Welcome to my page and thank you for being curious about the possibility of our working together. Reaching out for help takes enormous courage. I know.

My name is Helen, I am married and live in a quiet Suffolk village with my husband and teenage sons. A life shaping diagnosis brought me to therapy and to a career as a counsellor. Being in nature has always been my greatest source of peace and remains one of the cornerstones to my wellbeing. I grew up amongst the fruit orchards of Kent and still love nothing more than walking or running freely outdoors.
