Counselling in Derbyshire and online

Helen Arnold Counselling in Derbyshire and Online

Your mental health and well-being are too important to ignore and affect so much: Relationships, work, health and overall quality of life. But you don’t  have to struggle alone. I can help you work through challenging times and difficult feelings.

I provide a supportive and nurturing environment for people of all ages seeking to feel better equipped to overcome personal challenges, gain self-awareness, and achieve emotional well-being.

I work in-person, online or  by phone

You can choose online, telephone or in-person counselling, or perhaps a mixture. However we meet I’ll work with the same warmth, and ethical approach to provide a safe, non-judgemental space to explore your thoughts, feelings, physical reactions and behaviours and the interactions between them.

I work with children and adults

As an experienced and compassionate counsellor, I’m interested in you, your history and your decision to make changes in your life. 

Whether you prefer the convenience of online counselling or the warmth of face-to-face sessions, I’m  here to help. With comfortable offices in two beautiful locations in the heart of Derbyshire, one rural with views over the Peak District National Park and one in the centre of Matlock, you can choose your preferred setting or book for online sessions.

I offer  a free initial half hour consultation

You can ask me questions, tell me what brings you to counselling and to get a feel for how it might be to work with me as your counsellor. Just call, message, email or use the button below.

Making the future brighter

I have experience of working with people of all ages who have chosen counselling to help them get in touch with, express and explore feelings, to make changes, or find acceptance so they can live a fuller, more balanced life.

I believe in the ability of every individual to thrive and take responsibility for making positive changes and the need in all humans for warmth and connection for this to happen. I became a counsellor because I believe that counselling works.

We can’t change the past  but you can work through what’s happened and how it’s affecting the present to make the future brighter.


How Counselling can help

In counselling you can offload your troubles, explore your thoughts and feelings and work towards personal growth and positive change.

Feeling heard, seen and validated is the the starting point for working towards feeling safer, more resilient, better.

Our safe, non-judgmental, professional relationship may highlight patterns of expectations and behaviours that show up in other relationships past and present so I work with  gentle curiosity and noticing to help you understand yourself and others. 

Developing a deeper understanding of yourself and why you feel or behave the way you do can help you work out how to cope in difficult situations, improve communication and relationships.
