Helen CroweIntegrative psychotherapist
Hi, I’m Helen, an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. Here is an introduction to me and my approach to therapy. If you would like to find out more, I’d be happy to hear from you. I can offer counselling online or in person, a few minutes’ walk from Surbiton station.
Life raises all sorts of challenges that bring people to therapy. Perhaps you have been through a significant upheaval in your life or you’re feeling anxious or at a low ebb. Or maybe you just want to understand yourself better. Therapy can help with all of this.
I provide a supportive, confidential space for you to explore your situation, the difficulties you are facing and the experiences or habits that might be holding you back. This process is designed to provide greater clarity and, with it, an increased sense of well-being, self-acceptance and confidence in the choices you make.
I believe that effective therapy is a shared effort between client and therapist, rooted in a strong, trusting relationship. As your therapist I will commit to listen with an open, curious mind and try to understand you and your experiences as fully as possible to share thoughts and observations without trying to influence your thinking or decisions to reflect on our work together to ensure that I am doing the best I can for you.
My own experience of therapy has shown me that by getting in touch with ourselves we can learn to live fully in the flow of life, with all that it brings.
Issues often worked with
Types of therapy
If you are interested in speaking to me about starting therapy, I offer a free, 30-minute initial consultation online or by telephone. This provides the opportunity to discuss your situation and hopes for therapy and for you to get a feel for how I work and whether I am the right person for you.
Therapy sessions are 50 minutes long and take place at the same time each week. I can provide short-term contracts or longer, open-ended support, depending on your preferences. My fee is £65 per session.
Training and qualifications
I am a fully qualified, registered member of the BACP, specialising in humanistic, psychodynamic and existential therapies. My training as an integrative therapist means I can tailor the work according to each client's individual needs and preferences.
Before training as a therapist, I worked in a number of different areas including corporate organisations, mental health charities, schools and social services. I bring this life experience to my work with clients and understanding their worlds.
