​​We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak

Epictetus

I am Helen Bleeze, a qualified and experienced counsellor, who understands the positive impact that being truly listened to has on a person's well being. I have seen time and again how talking therapy empowers individuals and encourages positive change and development.

Working alongside my clients as they grow in self-awareness and self-acceptance is a privilege and an inspiration.

I am not here to tell anyone what to do or how to do it, rather it is through working collaboratively with others to explore their emotions, thoughts, patterns of behaviour - fundamentally their story - that together we can make a difference.

 

In addition to private practice, I work for two agencies, supporting young people and adults with a range of mental health issues.

I am a qualified teacher and a lecturer in Counselling training at a local college.

I am based in Bedford’s Castle quarter and I work face-to-face in a designated counselling room in my home, accessed by a private entrance for clients only.

I offer remote counselling via phone or video call.

To find out whether I am the right counsellor for you, get in touch with any questions or queries.
