Helen Parslow

I am a New Zealander who has been living in Wales since 1986, and have been working in a caring profession since 1976, initially as an occupational therapist and more latterly as a counsellor.
During my time as an occupational therapist I worked with clients who had both acute and chronic physical difficulties and then moved on to working within the mental health setting, where I worked until December 2001. It was through this that I became interested in counselling and gained my PostGraduate Diploma in Counselling in 1994 (University of Wales).
I have been working as a private counsellor since 1998. I became accredited with the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy in 2001, and practice under their Counselling Code of Ethics.
