Take 2 Professional Coaching, Counselling & Psychotherapy
Online, Teddington, Twickenham, Richmond

Welcome. I'm Helen King, a Professional Coach and Psychotherapist, supporting clients through major life transitions.

My company - Take2 - evolved from when I had my counselling & psychotherapy office in the old Teddington TV Studios. When the clapperboard snaps shut, the new "take" is rolling. In life we have more than one chance - and more than one way - to achieve our goals and wishes, to reinvent ourselves, to start something new, to experience satisfaction and achievement. So we can "take two" - or perhaps even three or four - or more...

If you are sick of the same-old/same-old, are suffering paralysis-by-analysis, believe you're close to your limitations, or find yourself grasping at the past because your future is blurry - then get in touch.


Let's clear a pathway and put your ideas into action. I don't put sticking plasters over tricky issues, nor do I wave the carrot and stick - its about you making lasting change, with integrity. Its also about having a very productive and enlightening journey getting there.

I offer you discretion - a working partnership with a committed and well-resourced coach. You get a reflective, balanced sounding board on which to bounce issues and goals. I'll help you assess your options - and the ones you've yet to think of - so you can truly achieve a different outcome.

I coach to get you unstuck - to guide you through major life transitions...

  • Expat spouses/partners who have up-rooted their own careers, families and homes, identity and support circle, to move overseas (from and to the UK) and who wonder just how they’re going to re-establish themselves;
  • Singles - those who now find themselves living a life on their own – and don’t like it / and those who love it, but want more;
  • Senior entrepreneurs who are staring succession in the face, but who find it hard to approach it in a positive, productive and passionate way. Coaching together could be one of the best investments you'll make.

    Take2 Coaching is global - we meet face-to-face online. Its prompt, convenient and comfortable! I welcome clients from the UK, throughout Europe, Australasia, Hong Kong, Singapore and America. If we can link up face-to-face via secure conferencing software, then I look forward to meeting you in any country. Please see Professional Coaching on the Menu above.


    I'm a highly experienced relationship and trauma counsellor & psychotherapist, with ten years in private practice in the Teddington, Twickenham, Richmond areas. Having trialled my specialised form of Walk&Talk Therapy over the last year in Teddington parks and open spaces, I have now selected this as my only therapeutic offering. Why? Because my Walk&Talk Therapy clients have helped me prove this method to be one of the very best ways of mobilising stuck thinking, behaving and feeling. Please see Walk&Talk on the Menu above.

    I reserve just a few client appointments each week specifically for Walk&Talk in Teddington & Isle of Wight. It's an advanced psychotherapy technique, which has proven to gently shift emotions in less time than sit-down-and-talk counselling and psychotherapy. Being out in the air is also a great mood buster and being in nature puts you more in touch with yourself. It is great for the more introverted among us, as it can offer you a less intrusive experience.

    Walk&Talk is for clients in the Teddington, Richmond, Hampton, Kingston, SW London and Surrey areas - and also in the Isle of Wight, where I work part-time.

    If you are unsure what would be the best way forward for you, then do please ask. Not everyone is suited to coaching - and not everyone needs counselling or psychotherapy. One size does not fit all.

  • Take2 offers Professional coaching and Walk & Talk psychotherapy / counselling in the London Borough of Richmond, Teddington and in the Isle of Wight.
