About Helen Kewell

 

I qualified as a humanistic counsellor in 2015, having spent most of my career as a management consultant. My new career path was as necessary as it was dramatic, having experienced loss and chronic illness during the preceding years. During my training, I became profoundly influenced by existential and experiential approaches to therapy and, almost inadvertently, became fascinated and inspired by working with older adults. I consider this area of psychotherapeutic work to be underrepresented in literature and under-resourced and hope to continue to promote a wider dialogue on it and prompt others to do the same.

My book of my work, 'Living Well And Dying Well: Tales of Counselling Older People', is available via PCCS books.

I run my own private counselling practice in Sussex, and continue to volunteer as a counsellor and supervisor for Cruse Bereavement Care.
