**Please note: if someone has referred you to me they may have known me by my former name Helen Acton.**
Approaching therapy or counselling for the first time can feel like a daunting and confusing prospect. People from all walks of life come to see me for many different reasons; you may be in crisis or you may simply wish to explore some aspect of your experience more deeply. Either way, it is a positive and courageous decision to make.
Before you begin, you may have many questions about what therapy and counselling are like and how they can help. Working with me is a dialogue of depth, and I don’t offer “tools” or “techniques”. Do take a look at my website www.cambridgetherapist.com where you will find full information about the therapy and counselling I offer.
The relationship between you and your therapist is at the very heart of successful therapy, so it's important that you choose someone who is right for you, whom you feel you will be able to relate to and engage with. My comfortable and private consulting room is on King's Parade, opposite King's College in central Cambridge.
Having completed ten years as the College Counsellor at Trinity College, University of Cambridge, I now focus on my private practice and welcome students and fellows funded by several of the Cambridge colleges.
