My name is Helen and I am an experienced, professional Integrative Counsellor and E.M.D.R. Therapist working in Littlehampton, near Bognor Regis and Worthing and also work within a counselling practice in Fareham, Hampshire. Talking to a non-judgemental, professional, friendly Counsellor in Littlehampton, near Bognor Regis, Worthing and Chichester or in Fareham can really help.
I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with :-
Having been a Counsellor for many years, I have worked successfully with clients with various presenting issues. It is the relationship between Counsellor and client that enables the therapy work and I offer understanding and support. I am non-judgemental; I may join some dots, which may challenge your thought process, but if I say anything wrong, please tell me!
The Counselling will be at a pace to suit you. As an Integrative trained Counsellor, I am able to draw upon all the major Counselling and Psychotherapy theoretical frameworks, such as CBT, E.M.D.R. to support you on your journey.
E.M.D.R. (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing), for clients who have experienced trauma. Trauma is taken from your prospective, so can include things such as bullying, loss, miscarriage, anxiety etc.. The traumatic memories and experiences are often frozen in your brain and not fully processed, they remain very real and raw and can be triggered at any time. During the E.M.D.R. process, it enables the brain to create connections between your brain's memory networks, which enables your brain to process the traumatic memory in a very natural way. You remain in control, it doesn't hurt and it works!
Entering into a counselling relationship can scarey and also be the way to get to that light at the end of the tunnel. You can either call me and leave a message if I am unable to answer, (I cannot answer if I am with a Client), or send me an email to arrange your first counselling session, where you can see if you feel ok to work with me and likewise me with you. At the end of the session, we arrange a date for the next session which is usually weekly but it can be fortnightly.
Counselling can be either long term or short term, depending on your needs and each session lasts for fifty minutes. In Littlehampton, West Sussex, I can offer daytime and evening appointments via Skype, Zoom counselling or telephone on Tuesday through to Thursdays (inclusive) and as mentioned, I will return to face to face counselling at the beginning of July, 2020. At
On Mondays I can offer daytime appointments at the offices in Fareham, Hampshire, for Skype, Zoom or telephone counselling at West Street Counselling and Psychotherapy Centre in Fareham. The premises in Fareham are above an estate agents and Farehamtrain station is nearby, there are plenty of local car parks. Please note that due to current restrictions, the waiting room is closed, please wait outside until your session time whereupon I will allow you access.
I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within The Ethical Framework. I am also affiliated to BUPA, Health Assured, Carefirst and am a member of E.M.D.R. Association UK & Ireland.
I know that counselling can change things. There is another way to live, you just have to believe and go with the process!
In times of crisis, we start to do things we wouldn't normally do, eat more, get frustrated easier, be more emotional or distant, not sleeping or not wanting to get out of bed, the list goes on. Please rest assured this is standard human behaviour for what is going on in the world at present; the amygdala part of the brain (acts on instinct) has probably been triggered, your mind is getting ready to right or run. Talking to people will help reduce the anxiety, breathing slowly will reduce the heart rate, do something with your hands or laugh! It is a strange world at present and we are all going through this together.
