Lindow Counselling

Helping you to feel more connected...
  • Are you in need of help but not sure exactly what you need?
  • Is life difficult to manage with you feeling ‘weak’ as though you should somehow be able to get on with things but the pieces just don’t seem to fit?
  • Do you feel unable to share your concerns with others in your life because you don’t feel they’ll understand?

You may be scared about counselling, you might not have any idea about what is involved but I can explain it to you and you can ask any questions you need to.

Life can be so difficult to manage, especially right now. So many changes have been forced upon us in a short space of time and there is so much uncertainty to navigate. You may have experienced a distressing loss of someone you love, you may be worried about someone or something happening. You may be feeling you’ve lost all control in your life. Counselling can really help as I can be alongside you, we can go at your pace looking at your concerns. Sometimes just saying it out loud can be such a relief and every feeling you are having is valid.

I will provide a safe space for you with no judgement. Together you can tell me about what is happening for you and together we can look at the possibilities going forward.

So if you feel this is the right time for you to seek help, I am here to be alongside you.

What My Clients Say

Initially I came to Helena as I was struggling with the death of my little dog. Helena was the only person who understood and validated the extent of my loss. Over time she helped me to work through my grief and eventually I felt able to bring a new puppy into my life. During the time I was seeing Helena I was also faced with numerous other life challenges and I don't think that I could have got through them without her support and guidance. Helena has great skill, understanding, and compassion and I can whole-heartedly recommend her services.

- G, Animal Bereavement Client

Family counselling for me was a daunting prospect, as with life's challenges who wants to admit they need a little help? When we have visited Helena it warmed my heart, put me at ease and gave me confidence to grow. That was also how my children felt too. No one wants to be in a family that is disagreeing and arguing as it makes you sad. We were able to explore emotions in a healthy way, recognise fear, we have been able to learn to accept anger, normalise our feelings and self regulate our responses. We played games, we drew pictures, we were engaged in every session and had fun taking little challenges away. We have had fun at family counselling sessions getting to know each other better and taking time to listen more to one another.

- C, parent in family counselling

The benefits I experienced from counselling with Helena touched every part of my life. I feel like I am looking out of the window for the first time, I am free to say, feel, discover and explore my thoughts and feelings in an environment of complete trust, safety and support. Helena is professional, knowledgeable, intuitive and empathetic. Thank you. I had no experience of counselling when I first came to Helena. I was anxious and uncertain. Within a few minutes Helena's professional, clear and caring approach meant I could relax and fully benefit from the counselling experience.

From introduction to ending the process was unhurried, transparent and comfortable. I was able to explore and challenge my feelings, thoughts and behaviours in a safe and supportive environment. I was kept on track and so could make the most of my time in counselling. The counselling experience has enabled me to be calmer and more confident. I now have more equal and fulfilling relationships with others. It was hard to be open, feel challenged and move away from how I had been previously - but so worthwhile. Thank you.
