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 online counselling to adults. I'm experienced in supporting people facing a range of difficulties including: anxiety and depression, relationship issues, self-harm, low self-esteem, work issues, life choices, stress and bereavement.

I'm a fully qualified counsellor holding a Masters degree in Counselling (High Distinction). I'm an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I also hold an MSc in Social Work and a first degree in Law. I have undergone further, specific professional training in providing online counselling. My work history includes counselling in private practice and charity settings in the UK and abroad and working 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 giving you time and space to work through your problems, opening up new perspectives, improving well-being, helping you think more clearly and understand yourself better.

Online counselling

Online therapy provides the opportunity to speak to a counsellor remotely from the comfort of your own private space without locality restrictions or the need to travel to a counselling centre.

I work with clients across the UK and overseas, including those seeking a British 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 many therapy sessions would I have?

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.

Counselling or therapy?

The terms counselling and therapy or counsellor and therapist are used interchangeably.
