About me

Helena is a Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health & Care Professions Council UK (HCPC). She draws from her experiences working with children, families and the professionals around them within NHS Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services, the charity sector, with education settings and the local authority. Helena takes a warm, playful approach to her work, centering the expertise and strengths of the individuals and families that see her. She draws from her training around child development, and a range of theoretical and therapeutic models to help develop a shared understanding of the current difficulties and strengths, and ways to enable change.

Helena integrates different therapeutic models in her approach, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Attachment, Clinical Neuropsychology, Systemic Therapy and Community Psychology (the relationship between an individual’s wellbeing with the wider societal context ) to best meet an individual or families’ needs. However Helena’s work is most influenced by Narrative Therapy, which views problems as separate from the individual/family, and assumes they have many skills, competencies, beliefs, values, commitments and abilities that will assist them to reduce the influence of problems in their lives.

Helena completed her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Surrey in 2012, and went onto specialise in narrative therapy and trauma approaches.
