Helen Whelehan

I am looking forward to offering new clients online sessions throughout this period of nationwide shutdown. You are welcome to contact me at:
helen_whelehan@me.co using Skype or Zoom or 07850837349 with FaceTime or phone.


Counselling is a partnership between counsellor and client, which explores the client’s experience: the client decides which issues she/he wants to look at and prioritise.

I believe that we all have the potential to learn and/or heal from difficult experiences or life crises and that the therapeutic relationship with a counsellor or psychotherapist (who you trust and you can work with) can provide a safe and supportive situation that helps you do that.

I use BSL (British Sign Language) and I am able to work one-to-one with people who are deaf or hearing impaired without the need for an interpreter.

I also have experience of working with people who have learning difficulties experience  and who often find communication challenging, through understanding individual needs we will work together to help to bring about change.

I am a member of the Counselling Society and adhere to their code of ethics. I have full professional indemnity insurance and have regular supervision from a qualified psychotherapist.


• Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling

• BSL Sign language interpreter

• Registered Member of the Counselling Society


I have run my own private practice in psychotherapeutic counseling for several years.

I offer specialist-counselling sessions for people who are deaf or who have hearing impairments.

I have experience working with young people in education, young people with psychotic disorders, including eating disorders and self-harming issues.

I also offer individual sessions for people with learning difficulties.


I offer day and evening appointments

Initial session £35.00

Normal session £50.00
I will consider reduced rates for those on low incomes

Only a phone call away to book an initial assessment to meet and decide if we can work together and begin our therapeutic relationship
