I'm Helen Carnell. I began working life working as a partner and graphic designer in a family print business. In 2000, synchronistic events led me to a career change and I was drawn to learn a spiritual healing course with National Federation of Spiritual Healing. The practices resonated within me, as since childhood I always felt that I was connected to something more than what I could see, hear and feel. In 2001, I began training as a counsellor and psychotherapist completing the journey by 2005. Since qualifying, I have worked as a child and adolescent counsellor in primary and secondary schools, co-ordinated and developed a children and young people's bereavement service in a local hospice and currently teach in Adult Education.
Over the years, I have added to my holistic toolkit by learning Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Reiki Healing, Rahanni Healing, Mindfulness and Meditation. I have professional and life experience that I believe helps me to connect with others in a unique and compassionate understanding.
I am a fully qualified BACP accredited counsellor, supervisor and tutor providing counselling and training to adults, children, young people and professionals. I work within a range of areas related to psychological health, wellness, personal and spiritual development.
Through groups and one to one sessions I provide a safe space for individuals to talk, play and be heard - enabling individuals to reconnect to their higher wisdom, inner strength, resilience, resources helping them to reach their true potential.
I use a range of skills including creativity, play, counselling, Emotional Freedom Technique, and Mindfulness. My approach is holistic and tailored to suit individual needs. I am fully committed to offer a service that is welcoming, warm, supportive and inclusive. I provide face to face services and online services via Skype.
At times when life becomes tough, it can be helpful to have someone walk alongside even if only for a short time.
