Helen Heather

It can be hard to reach out to someone or acknowledge that things feel difficult, especially if your natural reserves are running low and you are in a vulnerable place.  But this is the first important step in putting yourself in charge of your future and making positive changes.

I am Helen Heather, and I came to counselling after spending over twenty years teaching in secondary and primary schools. I have worked in a number of roles from pastoral to management and have always felt passionate about helping people to see and fulfil their potential.

I work on a one-to-one basis with adults and young people from the age of 11, offering face-to-face, online and telephone counselling.  I work in a person-centred way, an approach which recognises you as the person who knows you, your life and your experiences best.  We are all unique and I work with empathy to understand how it feels to be you, supporting you as you move forwards.
