She is compassionate and gentle, wanting to support her clients with practical strategies as well as a safe space to talk about their problems.

Helen has a special interest in helping individuals overcome trauma whether from childhood or more recent traumatic experiences. She has qualified in a number of trauma specific techniques including Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) and the Emotional Freedom Technique.

Helen believes in building strong, caring relationships with her clients, to guide them through life’s difficulties and support them in finding balance and well being.

Over the last twelve years Helen has become a valued and experienced therapist in the NHS. She is presently employed part time at Worcestershire Health minds, the local NHS adult therapy service (where GPs refer for anxiety and depression treatments).

Helen works with adults and also adolescents over sixteen years.

Helen is trained in using Eye Movement and Desensitisation Therapy (EMDR) for many years, and previously worked in a NHS clinic for patients with trauma, using this approach.

Helen is based in Lower Howsell Rd, Malvern Link in a private residential location.

Testimonial

I would like to thank you Helen for your kindness and support over the last few weeks. You have a lovely manner and I felt heard, listened to and understood. You very gently guided me through recent and past events with compassion.

I am amazed by the effectiveness of EMDR, and the change in me as a result. The ‘charge’ has been taken out of traumatic events and I feel lighter and able to cope with the present day as well as with the memories of previous events.

Thank you again. I’m happy for this to be used (anonymously) as a review/testimonial,
