We believe that psychotherapy should provide people with hope that they will move on from their difficulties and that they are not defined by them. We work from a practical, problem-solving perspective, so whilst we will carefully listen to your problems, we work skilfully to help you to use and develop your own resources to move on from these in as few sessions as possible. We work from a Human Givens perspective in our rooms in Cheadle, Cheshire.
We help a broad spectrum of clients, including those with personality disorders and those who have either committed sexual offences or are worried that they might commit such offences. Helen is a Therapist and Supervisor with StopSO UK which is a Specialist Treatment Organisation for the Prevention of Sexual Offending.
Our therapists are committed to helping those suffering from psychological trauma of any kind and Helen is especially proud to be affiliated with the Red Poppy Company who specialise in treating psychological trauma specifically in members of the armed forces. She also helps survivors of child sexual exploitation and is supporting families and professionals affected by the 2017 Manchester Arena bomb. The symptoms associated with trauma can be significantly reduced in one session.
Fees for individual sessions start from £120.00 with Helen (there are also concessionary rates).
Fees for individual sessions with Associate Psychologists or Psychotherapists start from £85.00 (there are also concessionary rates).
On average, we have assisted our clients to achieve their goals within six sessions.

‘Helen has helped me see clearly, understand and be able to postively move on from a narcissistic up bringing.'

'Helen is very well versed in helping recovery from narcissistic abuse.'
Female, aged 50s
'I have only met Helen twice so far and was very unsure if I was doing the right thing, it is not easy admitting you have a problem and can't cope with life. Frustrated at the lack of support from my GP I am glad that I found this site and met Helen. I feel comfortable and at ease in her presence which has made it easy to talk to her. She has really listened to me and is now helping me understand and deal with my problems. For me personally finding someone who I can feel safe and comfortable with was important, but also peace of mind that the person I was talking to is qualified to help me.'

'Thank you so much for being the sounding board and non-biased person I needed to work through my issues. There is still a lot to learn and to remember I have boundaries and they are reasonable. You have helped me work through my emotions and issues and I would highly recommend your services to anyone in need of therapy.'
