Counselling can be transformational – please don’t hesitate to get in touch to find out how it could help you
“Helen Inman has worked with students at our school for many years and is incredibly passionate about young people’s mental health.
Helen is flexible, dedicated and has often gone above and beyond to help our students, including creating spaces within the school setting that are more conducive to counselling. She has always maintained excellent communication with the school, is clearly aware of her responsibilities with regards to safeguarding young people and is highly professional in all that she does.”
“My daughter started seeing Helen when she was experiencing anxiety at school in Y11, which culminated in self harm.
Helen helped her understand what was making her anxious, taught her ways to recognise and manage her anxiety and helped her to believe in herself and value herself. At the end of a relatively short period of therapy (10 sessions) my daughter felt much less anxious, happier overall and more resilient.”
“Meeting Helen was probably the best thing of 2020 that could have ever happened to me!
Growing up in an enviroment where “real men” can deal with anything made me very reluctant in asking for any kind of help in general! That was my case … until … after 15 years of marriage, at the begining of a global pandemic, I found myself going through a divorce!! This was something inconceivable to me up until then!! I was feeling very uncertain of everything I knew about myself or my life up until that moment . Like with anything in life, acknowledging a problems existence is the first step towards solving it or making some sense of it’s meaning.
Working with Helen allowed me to do just that. Helen allowed me to create a safe space in which I could talk about my worries, thoughts and thought processes freely without worries of any judgement. She made me feel fully confident that I am in the presence of a trained professional that could give me the help I needed to reground myself in my existence. She helped me gain understanding of how my past experiences in life still influenced the way I currently perceived moments in life.
Helen also helped me develop new ways of understanding my emotions and thought processes, enabling me to better manage my present. It is said that with each day lived in our lifes we learn something new , well … Helen taught me that asking for help does not make you helpless nor broken. It makes you responsible, as it shows that your commitment to yourself enables you to be as happy and well as you can possibly be. I am really gratefull for her help and couldn’t recommend her services more highly.
Thank you so much Helen!”
I was just thinking about how grateful I am for our time together, I want to thank you so so much for everything you have done.
You have been so influential on my path and have helped set me up with the tools I will need for future life. You’re amazing❣️❣️
School is going really well, I left the 6th form boarding school 3 weeks in and moved to my local 6th form college, which was definitely the right choice!! Things with the family and boyfriend are going really well at the moment and I have really found people that understand me and I can have lots of fun with.
I hope you’re doing really well and continue to make peoples lives happier :)💗💗🕺💥”
“I feel my son has a great relationship with Helen. He has opened up to her a lot more than he will to me. When he was struggling with how his medication was making him feel it was Helen he told. Helen asked him if she could tell me which he said yes and I contacted the paediatrician which was really helpful.
My son has been learning about his ADHD, Helen has introduced a workbook which they do together, and it has helped him understand more about his ADHD and how it makes him feel.
I myself have found Helen very nice person. When she has needed to contact me for certain things and she has been so confidential with my son and always asked his permission if she has wanted to tell me anything.
My son has loved Helen’s dressing up box and playing games with her. I feel they have the most amazing relationship and will be sad that he won’t be able to take Helen to at secondary school due to lack of funding.
My son has had the most amazing year 6 and I do feel Helen has had an influence on this.”
“I have found Helen really helpful for my son. Before she started working him he was having exclusions a lot. I was being asked to pick him up because of major meltdowns and trying to run away out of school.
I feel now he has learnt coping techniques with Helen; to know to go in a room and calm down; to go outside and kick a ball; one of the tools he likes most is using a weighted blanket that Helen has, he goes and gets under. I even bought one for him at home.”
“Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I’m really thankful for the things you have taught me and how you’ve helped me improve. I can not put into words how grateful I am for your help.”
“I just wanted to say thank you for helping me this past year. When I first started , I was really nervous and not looking forward to our sessions. But now I feel like you are somebody I can talk to and look forward to our sessions. Thank you for all you’ve helped me with. I really appreciate it.”
“Thank you so much for helping me this year. You’ve really allowed me to open up and actually talk about myself, my thoughts and my feelings which was something I had not done before. It’s been so beneficial to my life and my relationships. I am much more confident in myself than I was a year ago.”
“I would like to thank you Helen for the brilliant job you have done with my son. I strongly believe he would NOT have dealt with his bereavement the way he has had you not been involved. You have been so kind and caring to us both. I feel that from the first contact you put us at ease. He looks forward to your sessions with you, and he has told me you explained things to him in a way…I just don’t have the words to do. So thank you so much for helping him to understand and move forward. Without your input my son and I would have struggled so much more to deal with what life has recently thrown at us. Thank you so much.”
“Thank you for helping me through the tough times, and helping me through the sad times. Thank you for helping to make me happier again and making my memory box.”
“Helen really helped me understand and control my emotions. I didn’t get kicked out of school, I don’t get angry and life’s pretty good now.”
“It has been hard but I’m getting there and feel proud of every small achievement I make.”
“I don’t define myself by what happened by me any more. Helen helped me think about the future, set goals and I feel much happier in life.”
“I’d been anxious all my life and at 40 decided I didn’t want to spend the next 40 years in the same state. I’ve learnt to identify the triggers, get some perspective on them and although I do still get a bit anxious from time to time it’s no more than anyone else. And what a difference it’s made…”
“Helen has been invaluable in helping my daughter navigate the turbulent waters of teenage years. With Helen’s professionalism, intelligence, kindness and humour, my daughter has learned to believe in herself. Now a more insightful and responsible young adult, she is making her own way, with pride and sound judgement, as well as a spring in her step.”
“Helen has supported me through some difficult times recently with moving colleges, my mental health, my identity and my family. During my time working with Helen we have explored aspects of what are healthy relationships… I have begun to learn how to establish boundaries in my relationships which has helped me increase my self worth. I’m getting on much better with my siblings. I have been able to explore and reflect on my communication style and approach with my wider family to reduce my stress and anxiety. I can see my confidence and self esteem improve and although there is still room for improvement, my anxiety is much less now.”
“Helen has helped me learn how to be happier! By talking to her about my Dad’s death it helped me to understand my feelings, helped me talk to my mum about it, and my friend who’s lost his Dad. She’s helped me with my friendships because I can talk about feelings now. I have changed my attitude and can focus more at school and on my work.”
“Thank you so much for all your help over the last year. I now have a much better understanding of my previous trauma and can separate it from my current self a lot more. Working with you has been a joy Helen. I’m very grateful for all the times you have safeguarded me, contacting relevant professionals with my consent and total involvement, after discussing it with me thoroughly. I feel like I am in a much better place and am enjoying life more. My finance is also extremely grateful for all you have done and in his words “It was the best money he’s ever spent.”
