Welcome to Way Ahead Counselling

How can Counselling help me ?

I am an experienced and professional BACP accredited counsellor offering support and talking therapy to individuals who need a safe, confidential and completely non-judgemental space to talk things through.

I specialise in supporting individuals through difficult times, with particular interest in generalised anxiety, food and eating issues, body image, self-esteem and confidence, bullying at work, relationship breakdown and mid-life crisis.

If you have been feeling anxious or overwhelmed about a problem or issue, especially if it is one of long-standing, I invite you to have a look at some of the resources on my website or just to get in touch via the form on the Contact page and we can arrange a phone call or meeting as soon as possible.

I offer a discounted first session at £25 for 45 minutes with the aim of giving you chance to tell me a little about your current situation and to find out how counselling could help you move forward with it.

I practice from quiet premises in St Albans with free parking outside and have various daytime and evening slots available to new clients. My rates are very reasonable and start from £40.00.

*** My practice will be closed from 20th December to 3rd January 2018 for the Christmas break.  Feel free to email me with enquiries for sessions in the new year as there will be space then and I will respond as soon as I am able.  With my warmest wishes, Helen ***

I really wanted to say thank you thank you thank you for your time, your effort, knowledge, thoughts and finally feelings over the last 20+ sessions.  I know and feel I have progressed amazingly and I know I couldn’t have done that without
you and your guidance.   MK (client)
