Counselling

1 in 4 people will experience at least one mental health problem in their life time and 1 in 10 children and young people ages 5yrs to 16yrs are affected by mental health problems. (NICE)


Individuals face a variety of challenges that can impact on their health, work, school or relationships with friends, family or partners. Helping Hands Support Services are here to help people find solutions to overcome these challenges and move forward.

As a service I offer a tailored and confidential service covering a variety of needs. The assessment process is in depth for all my clients, this enables me to get a better understanding of what is happening for you as a client but also as the client you have a clear picture of what your sessions will look like. 

My counselling service can be offered to adults, children & teenagers, at school or in my counselling room which is based in Queen Camel, Somerset for private clients and also sessional work depending on the need.

There are many different types of therapy, which involve different times and amount of sessions ranging from 50mins for talking therapy, to 90mins for EMDR & Hypnotherapy.

For short term work, hypnotherapy can be very successful in working on the things you WANT to change with results in as few as 3 sessions.

EMDR is for people who have suffered trauma in their lives, there is a process for this which is as follows: assessment, safety & stabilisation, which can take as long as it takes the client to master these skills.

After this we move on to processing the trauma our of the body, it’s classed as a bottom up approach.
