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

Hello Spring (?) - and a warm welcome to you,

I'm Helen King, an experienced Psychotherapist & Counsellor and Psychotherapeutic Coach - offering you three ways to meet:

Online / Face-to-Face - time-efficient, convenient and comfortable. A method that allows you to 'come to your session' from your office or home.
Outdoors (Teddington) - head clearing Walk & Talk (also in the Isle of Wight, where I work part-time).
Therapy room (wellbeing centre, Twickenham): Tuesdays 4pm to 9pm

Most of my Psychotherapy and Counselling is with clients experiencing loss of a sense of self, loss of esteem, a change in their role/identity, 'existing' in a codependent relationship and/or with a narcissist, indecision, difficult decisions such as business-succession or 'stepping back', repetitive negative behaviours, chaotic thinking, an unbalanced life. I have also worked the "12-Steps".

I work a lot with business people - and know it can be extremely hard for a senior professional or company owner to 'open up', to talk about the highly personal issues that face you. Be assured that from me, you will have total confidentiality, a fair and balanced view, someone who will ask you key questions without you having to worrying about the impact of your answers. I'll help you assess your options - and the ones you've yet to think of - so you can achieve a different outcome.

Whether you decide on Psychotherapy & Counselling (or Coaching), we will 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.

Take 2 was born when I used to have a Counselling & Psychotherapy office in the old Teddington TV Studios in SW London (when the clapperboard snaps shut, the new "take" is rolling). In life we have more than one chance, more than one way to get our wishes met, reinvent ourselves, start something new, peel away regrets - and experience satisfaction and achievement. We can "take two" or perhaps even three or four - or more...

So, after ten years in private practice in various offices - I got off my butt. This year, I finally shut the door on the four walls of my full-time therapy room - and started working with clients outside. I do, however, still offer therapy sitting down in Teddington on Tuesday afternoons only.

If you are sick of the same-old/same-old, are suffering mental paralysis-by-analysis, have difficulty turning talk into action, or find yourself grasping at the past because your future is blurry - I invite you to "take 2'.


An initial meeting to ascertain your therapy needs, is around 50 minutes and is free of charge. For this session, we will meet Online or sitting down together at a pre-arranged venue, due to me needing to make a few notes.

If your needs are best served by weekly Psychotherapy, the fees are £45.00 per session (reduced for Spring 2020). Psychotherapy sessions are 50 minutes in length.

If Coaching is a better option to gain momentum towards your goals, then we will aim to meet every other week. The longer time between sessions helps you to implement your actions and formulate new steps forward. Please click this link: www.take2coaching.co.uk

If you are unsure what would be the best way forward for you, then do please ask. One size does not fit all.

I have regular clinical supervision, full professional insurance, and I am registered under the ICO/Data Protection Act.
