Welcome to

Helen Page Counselling

A safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore the challenges in your life

About me

Hello and welcome. My name is Helen Page and I provide face-to-face and online counselling to adults. I am experienced in supporting people facing a range of difficulties including: anxiety and depression, relationship issues, abuse, self-harm, low self-esteem, work issues, life choices, stress and bereavement.

Face-to-face counselling would take place in a comfortable and conveniently located therapy space in Sevenoaks. Online counselling allows us to speak regardless of whether you live locally, elsewhere in the UK or overseas.

I'm a fully qualified counsellor holding a Masters degree in Counselling. I'm a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I also hold an MSc in Social Work and have undergone further, specific training in offering online counselling. My work history spans counselling in private practice, charity settings and in social services.

What I Offer

I am committed to offering you a safe, respectful, empathetic and supportive service. I will work with you to help you through whatever issue has brought you to therapy. I use an Integrative approach, drawing upon a number of counselling techniques to best suit your needs.

Benefits of counselling include helping you to move forward, giving you time and space to work through your problems, opening up new perspectives, improving well-being, helping you think more clearly and make better decisions.

Online counselling

Online therapy provides the opportunity to speak to a counsellor remotely from the comfort of your own private space. It also allows me to offer counselling to clients living further afield in the UK and to clients abroad. Having lived as an expat myself, I understand the wish to speak to a BACP counsellor whilst living, travelling or working abroad.

You will need an internet-connected electronic device like a computer, phone, or tablet with a microphone and video access. Some clients also prefer using headphones during their sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will I need to have counselling?

There's no fixed length of time for the counselling process and this varies from person to person and the issues they are facing. At the beginning, we can identify your counselling goals so that you are able to decide how long your therapy will last. Some people find that a short number of sessions is all they need whilst others value ongoing one-to-one counsellor support and will continue sessions for months or even years. There's no 'one-size-fits-all' in terms of therapy length.

Will everything I say be kept confidential?

Counselling takes place in a safe space where thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence. No counsellor can offer 100% confidentiality as in some situations the law requires disclosure of risk. This would be, for example, child protection concerns or an immediate risk of harm to yourself or others. However, a counsellor breaking confidentiality is rare and I would make this known if I had to do so.

What issues can counselling help with?

People come to me with a wide range of issues. Some of the more common difficulties are: family and relationship issues, anxiety and depression, low self esteem, work related issues, working towards a work-life balance, making life choices, grief, abuse.
