The language of the soul is in images, and so, sometimes when we have something that we haven’t been able to process, or a pattern that keeps repeating, talking about it doesn’t always transform it in the way that we would like.
When we use story, art, and connect to the body, use movement, walk in nature, use ceremony, we can access wisdom and insight which is so helpful in the therapy process.
I work very intuitively, and have been a qualified practitioner for 20 years, and have a huge toolbox of practices that can be of help in transforming old patterns.
You don’t need to be an artist or creative to enjoy this process. All activities are simple and perfect for beginners.
Gain insight & look at things differently
Feel empowered and find strength within
Release ancient stuck patterns that are holding you back
Re-light your inner flame and find joy in the creative process
Strengthen your spiritual connection
About your practitioner
I have a vast toolbox gained from continual professional development, and with you, we will journey together weaving creativity, nature, meditation, structured exercises, the sacred, ceremony, healing, psychotherapy, and forgiveness together with a good dose of gentleness, humour and self-compassion.
I am so moved by the profound shifts that happen when someone chooses to transform their life, and I am honoured to offer this to you.
What happens during a Creative Psychotherapy session?
There is no typical creative psychotherapy session, but as each session is unique. However, we will often follow a similar structure:
1. Decide on a theme for the session.
2. Begin with a grounding meditation and set the intention for the session.
3. Checking in on the previous week, and anything that has coming up.
4. Main activity, which could be using objects, artist, an activity in nature, meditation, a structured written exercise, ceremony, and forgiveness together with a good dose of gentleness, humour and self-compassion.
5. Reflection: We finish the session talking about what has been revealed through the main activity, and any follow up activities required for the week ahead.

A minimum of seven sessions to allow for the therapeutic relationship and process to unfold, and for you to begin to see positive change.
In these sessions, I will hold space for you, listen, witness, and use tools, techniques, and practical exercises drawn from my twenty years of qualified experience, to help you to process, gain awareness, transform and reach your desired outcomes.
A series of seven sessions is £385 (if paid weekly) or £350 (saving £35) if paid in full in advance.

"These creative psychotherapy sessions with Helen have been a fantastic help. I realise what has been getting me into a depressive and anxious state, and how to now help myself. The sessions have been very empowering, given me the insight I needed, and have helped me to listen to myself. I have found the strength and courage to express how I feel. These sessions with Helen have taught me so much about myself, and I feel like I’m growing again, and that my journey is just going to get better."
"These creative therapy sessions with Helen have been really helpful in helping me identify why I feel the way I do, and this has been the only thing through everything that has given me the insight I needed. The therapist has been fantastic and I would highly recommend. Thank you. These sessions with Helen have quite possibly saved my life."
"After years of receiving therapy, psychotherapy, counselling, CPN, Victim Support, medication…these creative therapy sessions with Helen have helped me more, given me more insight, a safe space, supportive to explore issues that have been holding me back and been entrenched for years."
Helen is simply fantastic! She is incredibly engaging from the outset, insightful and empathetic, but also able to get deep to the root of issues with warmth, compassion and some very very clever techniques. Words don't do justice to what Helen achieves!
'It has been very refreshing working with Helen for the past few months. When I came looking for support after a relationship ending, I was drawn to her spiritual approach. I found it easy to trust her, and Ive learnt new creative ways of looking at life. My life is much more drama-free as I'm choosing peace, and feel lighter in myself. As well as the sessions together, Helen created a 'releasing ceremony' for me at an ancient hill, where I felt able to let go. Helen has thoroughly helped me through my healing journey, and I really can't recommend her enough."
‘‘These Creative Psychotherapy sessions have helped me deal with my issues and get back my artistic and creative self, and helped me to deal with my fears. Helen has a way of making you feel comfortable and encouraged. I have felt feel looked after, and more able to feel like myself and express how I feel. The sessions have been so relaxed, and I have been able to explore things that I wouldn’t normally. I think that without these sessions, I wouldn’t have been able to move forwards. I can’t really express how grateful I am. Wonderful!’
