Helen is a registered and chartered Clinical Psychologist with many years’ post qualification experience. She has worked extensively in the NHS, across a range of services and settings, including leading services for adults from diverse backgrounds with complex mental health problems in East London. She currently runs a private practice offering consultation, therapies, supervision and training to individuals, groups and organisations. She also offers expert assessment services to the family courts.
Helen likes to view people in the context of their relationships with others, as individuals functioning in a much bigger picture. She values people’s strengths and resources and tries to understand with them the strategies they draw on to live their lives but also the blocks and challenges along the way. No one chooses the life they are born into and sometimes space is needed to grow and open. Therapy can help create opportunities for change, enabling new connections to be made between events, experiences, relationships and choices.
Who Helen works with
Helen works with adults with a wide range of emotional, psychological and mental health issues and concerns, including (but not exclusively) relationship problems, anxiety, unhappiness/depression, stress and burnout, sleep problems, lethargy, anger and trauma. Please enquire if your concern is not listed here as she has worked with a wide range of experiences and difficulties.
She offers interpersonal, dynamic and systemic-based therapies, which explore thoughts, feelings, patterns and experiences within the context of people’s histories, relationships and cultures. She works integratively, which means that she draws on a range of theories and knowledge to inform her practice and tailor the treatment to your individual needs.
To arrange therapy
Please contact Helen directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 07963681889. For further information you can view Helen’s website www.psychologyeastlondon.co.uk. She will then phone you to have a brief conversation about the type of issues you would like help with. If Helen feels she may be able to offer you something, she will book you in for an initial face-to-face consultation that usually takes between 1-2 hours. This will be a chance to find out a little more about what’s been happening for you, for her to let you know what she can offer and to make a therapy plan. Therapy usually involves weekly, 50-minute sessions. The number and regularity of these will be discussed as part of your treatment plan.
