Clinical Supervision

Our online sessions

Helen Bennett - The Menopause Therapist

All ethical counsellors and psychotherapists attend clinical supervision regularly. It’s an opportunity to review your casework and practice with an experienced therapist who knows you and your client group, who can provide a different perspective or encourage you to explore your work to provide the best possible service to your clients. A good supervisor will support, encourage and challenge you to continue to develop into the counsellor or psychotherapist you want to be. They will help you reflect on your client work, CPD needs, spot transference and parallel processes, support you to manage your practice effectively and ensure you are working safely and ethically.

The right supervisor for you is someone who you feel comfortable with who will help you support your clients in the best way possible for you, whether you are an experienced therapist or you are just starting out.

I offer ongoing supervision and single session supervision - adhoc or one-off sessions focused on supporting counsellors and psychotherapists working with POI, hormonal issues (e.g. PMDD), menopause, fertility or miscarriage.

About me

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and Supervisor with a private practice focused on supporting clients with menopause, POI, hormone, fertility and women’s issues. My experience includes working in a ’general’ counselling agency supporting a range of presentations including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and working creatively in secondary education supporting young people aged 14-18. I work integratively, with a core in person-centred therapy, combining Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, CBT, breathing techniques and solution-focused brief therapy, amongst other approaches - I love a CPD course and have a ‘wall’ of therapy books I intend to read.

My training and CPD includes courses on menopause (International Menopause Society), CBT for menopause (British Menopause Society), an Advanced Diploma in Fertility counselling (National Fertility Society), Autism (The Autistic Advocate), ADHD (Free2BMe) counselling for eating disorders and disordered eating with neurodivergence (NEDDE) and several shorter CPDs. As a neurodivergent counsellor I have a strong interest in supporting other neurodivergent therapists, and therapists working with neurodivergent clients.

Before training as a counsellor I worked in senior HR and internal resourcing roles within high-growth, tech and produce-based start-ups, professional and financial services, legal and media industries. I understand a high-pressure work environment, and how that can impact people trying to conceive and impact the menopause transition.

Counsellors’ Staffroom

When I am not working with clients and supervisees, I support counsellors and psychotherapists in online community spaces. I co-founded Counsellors’ Staffroom, a membership platform focused on supporting counsellors and psychotherapists with Zena Nicholas . Together we admin the Counsellors’ Staffroom Facebook group of over 7,000 counsellors and psychotherapists.
