Helen Mayor - Director
MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling
Registered member of the BACP (MBACP)
Registered member of UKCP
Helen is a fully qualified integrative psychotherapist, which basically means she draws on different therapeutic theories to meet the needs of those she works with. Before training she worked in dynamic and intense business environments which she feels enables her to relate to some of the pressures of those she meets. It is her belief that good therapy can be a form of human alchemy, and the relationship with the therapist sits at the heart of that alchemy.
Helen's diverse experience includes working in a bereavement centre, the NHS and private practice. Some of the issues she has experience of working with include, anxiety, depression, perfectionism/self esteem, relationships, stage of life crisis, OCD, intrusive thoughts, bereavement, loss and relationship issues.
Helen currently works in private practice from rooms in the City EC2R, Central London W1 and Hampstead NW3. However it is also her long held the view that, for some clients working outside can lend something beneficial to the work and those she works with. Consequently her Masters dissertation was about Walking Therapy and she now works with clients in London's green spaces of Hampstead Heath, Regents Park and Hyde Park.
The location is secondary to the most important factor, a supportive relationship which can offer the safety and space each week to think, talk, share and explore without feeling
