Qualified Therapeutic Counsellor

Hello. I live in the Colne Valley in West Yorkshire and offer counselling and coaching sessions on the Pennine hills, woods, valleys, rivers and canals near my home.

I am trained to work outdoors and find that this way of working can be helpful for people who have a connection with nature, work or enjoy being outdoors or feel more comfortable in a natural landscape.

I also work indoors and have a consulting room in my home.

I have worked in education for over 35 years and have a great deal of experience in working with young people.

I trained in outdoor work and  co-founded Growing Works, a social enterprise and charity offering outdoor activities for individuals and families who have a disability, a mental health condition or for people who wanted to benefit from being outdoors.

For many years I also ran the outdoor space for women in crisis at the Womencentre in Huddersfield and was a volunteer counsellor there.

I also work as an artist and regularly exhibit and sell my work please see http://www.elainethelierart.co.uk
