Counselling Can Help Restore Wellbeing

Counselling can help you to understand more about who and how you are in the world and in your relationships with others. It can offer you a breathing space to off-load, work-through and uncover. Being listened to and accepted by an attentive and committed counsellor helps you to listen to and accept yourself – a ripple effect that touches all areas of your life.

Counselling with Helene Baker
also offering counsellor supervision
I have more than 20 years experience of working therapeutically with adults and children, offering help with the difficulties, setbacks and sufferings that are part of our human experience. I offer a calm and reflective space with open interest towards whatever arises. Attentiveness, inquiry, alertness and curiosity are some of the qualities of this counselling space out of which we often discover different and surprising perspectives.

I hold qualifications in counselling, counsellor supervision and group facilitation working privately and within organisations. As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy(BACP) and the British Association for the Person Centred Approach (BAPCA), I work in accordance with their guidelines for ethics and good practice. I am accredited by the Counselling Society.

What Do I Offer?

I offer warmth and a steady companionship in my work with others and I am committed to prizing both our uniqueness and our common humanity.

I offer help with the difficulties, setbacks and sufferings that are part of our human experience; a calm and reflective space and an attentive companion who can help you to look behind the obvious with openness and interest. 'Looking behind' can help us discover our own truth and inner resources, and develop trust in our ability to meet with future challenges.

What Is The Next Step?

You can contact me for a free telephone consultation: an opportunity to find out what is on offer and whether it might help. Taking a step further, we can arrange an initial session for more in-depth exploration and a sense of the way that we might work together.

Following this, I usually suggest an initial four to six sessions before committing to a longer working relationship.

Length of Sessions & Therapy

Sessions with individuals are one hour long. For couples and groups the sessions will be longer, and this is arranged by negotiation. For brief, focussed therapy 3 or 4 sessions may be enough. This way of working is suitable if you have previous experience of therapy and are motivated to work intensely. For a longer and deeper exploration many find it beneficial to continue in therapy for several months or even years.

Regular sessions, usually weekly, create a momentum which helps the therapy to work. In the longer term, frequency might be reduced once the work is established.

I am happy to help find a way of working that feels right for you.
