Who am I?
Prior to Covid, Helen was an actor, writer, and community drama facilitator for 20 years - she’s worked with people aged 2-101 and taught in nursery, primary, secondary, tertiary level as well as in further education, professional theatre and community contexts with adults and young people. This work has shaped her values, prioritising inclusivity, empowerment, congruence and a fun energetic approach to work and life.
“I am delighted to be joining the amazing MAC Team as a facilitator for their Group Work programmes”.
Helen’s training is focused on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and act. It's most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression but can also be very useful for other mental and physical health problems.
Her Diploma speciality is focussed on individual and group psychotherapy. She is also a Community Support Practitioner for people with Mental Health issues & Learning Difficulties or Differences.
Helen is completing her Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at The Glasgow Cognitive Therapy Centre in Glasgow, having previously gained the COSCA certificate in Counselling Skills.
