Helen King Counselling Contact Me

Do you sometimes find life a struggle? Do you sometimes feel lost, confused, overwhelmed, or ‘stuck’? Do you want to change things but feel unsure how or where to begin? We all find life difficult at times; we all occasionally need support. You don’t have to cope alone.

Coming for counselling is the first step towards making change.  Entering into a therapeutic relationship can help you redress life’s imbalance, improve your mental health, increase sense of well-being.

I am a mature, experienced counsellor, providing safe, reliable counselling in a well-established practice in Totnes. I offer warmth, acceptanceunderstanding and a professional approach.

I place emphasis on the importance of the relationship between therapist and client. Holding you at the centre of our work together, I can offer my time to work closely alongside you, look at what’s troubling you and help make sense of things.

My counselling practice is based in a designated, private garden-room in a quiet residential cul-de-sac near the centre of Totnes, with parking. From here I offer a secure base for us to work together, a calmpeaceful space where you can talk through your thoughts and feelings confidentially, without feeling judged.

I offer long or short-term counselling for adults & young people in Totnes, surrounding villages & nearby towns of Buckfastleigh, Ashburton, South Brent, Newton Abbot and Torbay.

I have much experience of helping people with a broad range of life’s challenges and personal issues including:

  • self-esteem
  • family relationships
  • personal relationships
  • anxiety or worry
  • work or study-related stress
  • issues relating to eating
  • transition or life-change
  • bereavement or loss
  • sadness or depression, lack of meaning or purpose in life
  • disability
  • personal development and self-awareness

When life becomes difficult, it can sometimes be easier to talk to someone who is not personally involved…

It can help to have someone to talk to who isn’t a friend or relative, but who holds your best interests at heart.

I will acknowledge and value your unique perspective and work with you to help you gain a clearer insight and understanding.

Working with you, I aim to build a relationship of trust, acceptance and respect for who you are.


I won’t give you advice, but I will work together with you, at your own pace.

I’m a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and I follow their ethical guidelines.
