Helen Boardman Counsellor
Bachelor of Counselling (Bethlehem Tertiary Institute)
I have been a counsellor at Grief Support Services since May 2020. Prior to that, I worked in private practice and spent some time as an assistant counsellor educator at Bethlehem Tertiary Institute.
I was initially drawn to the field of counselling after experiencing its impact on my own life following the sudden loss of a close family member.
During my years as a counsellor I have had a strong interest in walking alongside people during times of loss, grief and change. I know the difference it can make when we have a safe place to share our story and feelings, and to start to make sense of what has happened. I’m very glad to be able to offer that safe, supportive space to people in my work here at GSS.
