“I have been a client of Helen’s for almost two years. My situation was extremely difficult and I was isolated from friends and family with little support. I recall contacting Helen on a Saturday as the situation with my ex partner was extremely volatile. I was at my lowest point not knowing which way to go.
I found Helen to be a lady that understood my grief which was very deep, the word trust comes to mind when I think of her. Helen showed me that I deserved the best and helped me recognise that my situation was not how a relationship should be. I am honoured to have met Helen and will continue to work with her to achieve my dreams of a beautiful loving relationship with a person of equal integrity. Thank you so much Helen”
” Thank you so much Helen for getting us to this point, we couldn’t have done it without you and we feel so appreciative of you Helen, your personality is so suited to your work we feel like we have known you forever”.

“Before seeing Helen my partner and I had come to a crossroad, we were having communication issues and after many frustrating discussions we decided that without addressing these issues we would most likely separate. We made an appointment to see Helen. Throughout our therapeutic process with Helen my partner and I found her to be very caring and always concerned about our well being. Over the time we spent with Helen we were able to rebuild our connection and look forward to our happy future together.
Helen is a beautiful soul and I feel blessed that she came into my world at a time when I had lost faith in the future of my long term relationship. I am forever grateful for her support and genuine compassion and absolutely recommend her services to anyone needing a therapist.”

I have been a client of Helen’s for almost 3 years now, for both couple and individual counselling. Helen is extremely warm and easy to talk to (good thing in a counsellor).
I did not know what to expect when we initiated the couple counselling and we were both very nervous. Helen managed to draw out issues seamlessly and naturally creating a comforting and non threatening environment.
Helen was able to provide significant and useful information/tools that enabled us to identify and manage our individual behaviours so that together we were able to dislodge confusing and destructive patterns that had been created within the relationship. We both now have a greater understanding of each others’ weaknesses and strengths and with Helen’s guidance we have been provided with a better understanding of navigating our way through challenging times more harmoniously (a good thing in a relationship).

“As a client of Helen I found her to be a very caring and compassionate person. Her ability and reasoning to deal with issues surpassed my expectations. Helen’s vast experience and professional approach enables her to identify problems and work to find solutions while remaining very kind and concerned.”

“I found Helen to be very relatable, easy to talk to and caring. She helped navigate me through a difficult time. I highly recommend Helen to anyone looking for voice of reason.”
I have known Helen Larkey for ten years as a lecturer and counsellor. Helen makes you feel at ease with great warmth, treating people as equals and experts of their own lives and being non-judgemental. This approach is very empowering as you are free to explore options in a safe environment without being judged. Other skills that Helen brings are empathy, great listening skills and knowing that you are being heard.

“Whilst studying at university I was fortunate to have Helen as my lecturer. During this time I was volunteering as a face to face counsellor and was supervised by Helen in this role. Helen was very professional and supportive, sharing her extensive knowledge in the field. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone seeking a quality counselling, or psychotherapy supervisor.”

“Helen was my lecturer at University and is currently my professional supervisor. Helen has a wealth of experience working with individuals and families. She is a consummate professional with a warm humanistic approach. Helen’s passion is people and relationships. In Helen’s words “It’s all about relationships”. I am indebted to her as she continues to be my mentor, guru and lifelong inspiration”.

“Helen taught me through my years at university. Throughout that time I found her to be not only an excellent teacher but also approachable, reliable and extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to her work. I am honoured that I got to learn from such a kind hearted and lovely lady”.
Helen’s office is located at Bangalow in the Northern Rivers district of New South Wales, but I can also offer a mobile service to the surrounding areas of Byron Bay, Mullumbimby, Lismore and Ballina – and work with many people around Australia and the World via the Telephone and Internet.
