How Helen works
Helen treats everyone as an individual and works from a premise of helping everyone to be the best that they can be and to work through whatever challenges they are facing. Each person will have unique needs and the sessions are tailored to that. During the first sessions expectations of both parties are discussed and how they will work together is explored and clarified. Helen is very open, warm, calm and friendly and is very experienced at making the person feel comfortable and able to trust quickly. Helen has a passion for helping people to be the best that they can be and is skilled at creating a supportive and safe environment to work in.
Helen is a kind and caring lady who has a wealth of experience of working with all types of people across all ages and walks of life. She is able to put people at ease in a non-judgemental and supportive way almost immediately. Helen can work with adults and children and young people. She has had a lot of personal experience of the personal struggles young people are grappling with today and has a keen desire to help young people navigate some of those challenges safely and effectively. Helen is able to utilise many techniques to allow for an engaging yet supportive session that allows the client to feel able to talk about things that may be troubling them.
Helen has two children one 18 and one 13 and understands the difficulties faced by children today who have non-conventional backgrounds, families or circumstances.
