Feel lost, alone, confused, scared?
Don't want to 'burden' your friends anymore?
My name is Helen and I am an experienced, professional counsellor/therapist working within a counselling therapist practice in Fareham, nr Gosport, Portsmouth and also in Littlehampton. Life can be hard sometimes and talking to a non-judgemental, professional, friendly Counsellor in Fareham or Littlehampton 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, non-judgemental, and support, I am someone you can 'download' to and clarify your thoughts.
The Counsellingis at a pace to suit you and will enable you to have time to re-think and clarify things in your own mind and you will gain new tools to help you more forward. Being an Integrative trained Counsellor, enables me to draw upon all the major Counselling and Psychotherapy theoretical framework, such as CBT, to support you on your journey.
I am also trained in EMDR (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 to name but a few. 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. Through the EMDR it helps create connections between your brain's memory networks, enabling your brain to process the traumatic memory in a very natural way.
Entering into a counselling relationship can be the 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 Skye, Zoom counselling or telephone Counselling sessions Tuesday through to Thursdays. At
On Mondays I can offer daytime appointments at the offices in Fareham, nr Gosport, Portsmouth for Skype, Zoom or telephone counselling West Street Counselling and Psychotherapy Centre in Fareham is central Fareham and within easy reach of Portsmouth, Gosport and Southampton. Fareham train station is nearby, on road parking and plenty of local car parks.
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 EMDR Association UK & Ireland.
I know that counselling can bring relief; exploring things can enable change. There is another way to live, you just have to believe and go with the process!
The sessions are now only on-line or face to face via Skype or Zoom to comply with the Governments Social Distancing Rule. 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, you 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.
