Who are HT Counselling?

HT Counselling was founded by Helen Townsend over a decade ago.  After many years in private practice Helen commenced HT Counselling Service in 2017 to build a wider ranging service incorporating other professionals, experienced and new.  We offer affordable and accessible therapy services in a private practice environment.

Her aspiration was to create beautifully furnished rooms that offered a safe, quiet and convenient location along with the opportunity to incorporate a range of services such as counselling, psychotherapy, play therapy, anger management, mindfulness and alternative therapies such as Hypnotherapy all under one roof.

Helen has also introduced a service that aids newly qualified professionals to build their own businesses whilst incorporating support and knowledge from her own experiences of running a business.

Why choose HT Counselling Services?

​There are several organisations, charities and individual counsellors offering support to people throughout Bromsgrove, Worcestershire and the West Midlands. It can therefore be very confusing as to who to turn to for professional help. Often a client will approach a counsellor without understanding totally that they have turned to the most appropriate person for their specific problems/issues.

HT Counselling services have a number of counsellors working together all offering different styles of counselling and different areas of expertise. This service will ensure that the client is matched with the best person to support them in their quest to understand their thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

On making an enquiry or booking, Helen Townsend (Practice Director) will put a client in touch with the chosen counsellor. Clients can request information about the counsellor that has been chosen to work with them in terms of their experience and qualifications. HT Counselling service will attempt to answer all the client’s questions prior to the counselling commencing in a very open and honest way.

All the counsellors that work for HT Counselling services have worked closely with Helen for a good period of time and have therefore been rigorously vetted. All have up-to-date memberships to a Professional Body, Personal Liability Insurance, Data Protection (ICO) cover and DBS ((Disclosure & Barring Service) where applicable)) and renewals annually are checked by Helen.

The counsellors all adhere to a code of ethics, regular Supervision and are all committed to Continuous Personal Development.
