From Pain to Peace

Freedom and Connection


Everybody goes through big challenges in life and we do our best to get back to wellbeing by ourselves. But sometimes this isn’t possible and things can get too much. As a consequence, we may experience feelings of depression, trauma, anxiety, overwhelm and all sorts of emotional suffering. That’s where I love to help.

My purpose is to help you move forward so you can live your life with a sense of ease, peace, freedom and connection.
As a Human Givens counsellor I always aim to do this in as few sessions as possible. During our sessions you will feel fully seen and heard for who you are, in the safest way possible. Every session will be tailored to meet your needs, ensuring that you will start to feel better right from the beginning.

Some of the challenges I can support you with include, but are not limited to:

Childhood Trauma 
Trauma / PTSD:

"Having been diagnosed with complex trauma and PTSD, I experienced many different modalities and therapies, but it wasn’t until embarking on Human Given's Counselling with Helen, that I felt my triggers were finally abated. I feel calmer, lighter, more solid and grounded in myself for the first time in years. I am so grateful for the work we have done together and the amazing results."

"I have suffered from low self esteem and anxiety all my life, I thought I was an unworthy person and unhappiness was my destiny. Helen was amazing from the first meeting, always attentive, never judgmental and incredibly supportive. She was so understanding and honest with me, she created a comfortable environment in which I felt safe to share my deep-seated beliefs, no matter how irrational. Every time we meet we built on previous sessions. Her expertise and knowledge is phenomenal, as was her ability to fully understand my anxieties and needs, and her ability to remember things I said even months ago. She was incredibly intuitive and the therapy was so attuned to my needs and facilitated diminishing old entrenched memories and unhelpful patterns of thoughts & beliefs. I can honestly say my recovery has been so much more than I could ever imagine... I feel like I have a second chance in life. Helen has faith in me and has literally helped turn my life around by regaining confidence in myself. I can not thank her enough. On reflection I do not know how I would have got to where I am now without her support. One amazing lady."

"I've had a few different types of therapy over the course of many years, but none that have had the effect that having Human Givens therapy with Helen has had on me. I feel such a positive change in my mind set, so much clearer, lighter, confident in my choices & empowered to just be me! It's helped me to really let go & move past trauma that has held me back for most of my adult life & I feel so relieved & free. Helen is gentle in her approach, so warm & kind hearted. She is exceptionally knowledgeable & totally professional at all times. She has such a wonderful energy about her which immediately puts you at ease. In short Helen helped me get over some of the toughest experiences I never thought I would."
