Hello and welcome. My name is Helen Page and I provide online counselling to adults throughout the UK and overseas. I’m an experienced and fully qualified counsellor holding an MSc in Counselling (High Distinction). I’m a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Prior to establishing my online private practice, I worked in social services and charity settings where I supported people experiencing a range of stressful and difficult circumstances.
I have also lived and worked abroad as an expat.
I am committed to offering you a professional, supportive service and will work with you to help you through whatever issue has brought you to therapy such as stress, anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties or low confidence and self esteem.
I use an Integrative approach in my practice, drawing upon a number of counselling techniques to best suit your needs. A safe and confidential space will be provided for exploring and helping to make sense of your thoughts, feelings and circumstances.
I work with individuals on an open-ended or time limited basis. We can look to find a mutually convenient session time. Day and evening appointments are available, Monday to Friday.
The initial session is offered at the reduced rate of £20. This first session is as opportunity for you to speak about the issues that have brought you to see a counsellor. If at the end of this we feel we are happy to work together, subsequent sessions can be arranged at the rate of £45 per session.
Therapy sessions are 50 minutes each and take place over the online platform Zoom.
Online therapy provides the opportunity to speak to a counsellor remotely from the comfort of your own private space.
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.
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.
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.
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.
