About Helen Smith-Direction to Care-Mobile counselling/support

Hello,my name is Helen and I am 51.I have a Higher Diploma in counselling and have ongoing personal development and training. I have worked in mental health support for over 10 years with Rethink and have specialist knowledge with bereavement and loss and considerable experience working with older clients in their homes.I work in a gentle person-centred way to enable individuals to find their pathway forward in life.I offer a mobile counselling and support service visiting people at home.I am not only able to offer counselling on an hourly week by week basis but can offer a broader approach of support work with counselling skills so that loss and change can be gently approached which is particularly helpful for those adjusting to change in their lives often brought about through bereavement and diminishing health both mentally and physically.It can be difficult for older or disabled people often in rural areas to access this kind of help and visiting at home can be the most effective way. Having a home service is proving to be convenient and appropriate for many clients.
