Helen Gaynor
Person-Centred Counsellor

Helen Gaynor

Helen Gaynor joined Priory in March 2018 as a bank therapist at Priory Wellbeing Centre in Birmingham. 

She has been working for a charity-based organisation since January 2013 starting out as a volunteer and then becoming part of the team as an assessor, whilst continuing as a counsellor, until February 2018.  Her experiences included working within the NHS profession for the past 11 years and she also runs her own private practice outside of central Birmingham.


Helen Gaynor graduated from Warwick University in July 2014 with a Foundation Degree (FD) in Counselling and Psychotherapy. She then completed her Bachelor of Arts with Honours (BA Hons) Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy graduating in July 2017.

She has studied the theory of the person-centred approach with a focus on mental health issues, misuse of drugs and alcohol, and physical and emotional abuse. Helen also works creatively with patients, along with ethics in research and her own research papers focusing on the ethical and moral dilemmas and conflicts which may be encountered by a person- centred counsellor, when working with suicidal patients.

She has undertaken training which includes working creatively with anger, domestic violence and post-traumatic stress disorder, working therapeutically with survivors of sexual abuse and changing minds in therapy: the way forward?

At times we can all feel lost and life can feel overwhelming, with us struggling to get the people whom we love and trust to understand our inner feelings. As a qualified person-centred counsellor, I can offer an emphatic, open, safe environment enabling you to explore those feelings, allowing you to better understand them and helping you to reconnect with your inner values and sense of self-worth.
