Heather, a counsellor in Belper, sat in a chair smiling at the camera

Hello, I'm Heather.

 

I'm a BACP Accredited Counsellor working in Belper, Derbyshire and remotely via video platform.

Before training as a counsellor, I spent a decade working in consumer insights in London, in the fast-paced, and oftentimes stressful, business world. After a challenging period - a combination of grief, stress, and burnout - I sought out therapy for the first time, and I found the experience transformative. Not only did counselling support me through that time, it also inspired me to drastically change my career path, and I went on to train in Gestalt counselling at The Gestalt Centre, London, before opening my private practice.

I attend regular clinical supervision and engage in my own personal therapy to ensure that my work remains safe, ethical and effective. As a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), I adhere to their ethical framework and regularly attend Continued Professional Development (CPD) courses, events and workshops.

Heather has been a fantastic counsellor to work with; she is patient, empathetic, and a great listener. She has gently helped me look at things from a different perspective, and given me concrete techniques that I can use to help me through day-to-day challenges. I feel like I have really grown over the weeks of our counselling, and I feel empowered to face whatever life and work can throw at me. I would definitely recommend working with Heather, especially if you need support in dealing with anxiety and building confidence to excel in life.
