Professional, confidential counselling in Shrewsbury town centre

About Helen Scholes

Psychotherapist Shrewsbury
I am a qualified counsellor and Registered, Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).

During my training I studied a range of therapeutic approaches to enable me understand and help people in distress and those seeking personal growth. Experience tells me that there is no such thing as a typical client - certain types of counselling suit some people more than others, so I draw from a range of approaches to provide the right help for you.

I have worked with people from many different backgrounds and a wide variety of issues, within my private practice, a counselling agency and GP surgery settings in Shrewsbury & Telford.

In the past I have had counselling myself which had a very positive effect on my life and influenced my decision to train as a counsellor. Statistics show that 1 in 4 of us is likely to experience a mental or emotional wellbeing issue at some point in our lives. I believe that there is usually a reason for distress, that feeling unhappy is part of being human, but that we all deserve and are capable of experiencing happiness.

My previous experiences working in management roles and now as Director of a local counselling charity in Shrewsbury have given me insight into corporate issues. I have also worked as a reflexologist and even a circus skills teacher! Alongside these things I have had training in healing and mindfulness.

It is a real privilege to work alongside people as they gain more self-understanding and make positive changes in their lives, this is what makes my work so rewarding.

I am bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and engage in regular continuing professional development. I have professional indemnity insurance which is renewed annually. I also receive regular consultative support and supervision from a Senior BACP Accredited & Registered Counsellor & Psychotherapist.
