Helen Armstrong

I discovered mindfulness practice in 2014 having been through a period of difficulty and change, and not knowing where my life was taking me. I still don’t know where my life is taking me, but now I’m ok with not knowing! I have a daily meditation practice which is a great resource in helping me experience my life.

I am a member of the Mindfulness Association and have completed a number of their certificated courses including mindfulness and compassion based living. My mindfulness and meditation practices are a cornerstone in my life, keeping me steady in a crazy world. I also go on retreat once or twice a year with a Buddhist teacher to nourish myself. Paying attention to my personal care and wellbeing is essential for me to be able to do this therapeutic work.


I have recently qualified as a psychotherapist in Mindfulness Based Psychotherapeutic Practice at the Karuna Institute and am working towards accreditation with the UKCP. I am committed to working within their ethical code and I am in regular supervision with a Core Process Supervisor.


I am looking for clients who want to attend therapy weekly, for a fixed period of time or on a long term basis. As a newly qualified practitioner I charge a reduced rate of £50 per session. I also carry spaces at a lower cost (depending on your financial circumstances), so if the cost of therapy is a barrier I would be happy to talk about this with you. I work in Penylan, Cardiff and my sessions are at any time of the day.

Group Work

I have experience in working with groups, including co-facilitating a group in meditation and inquiry for a year. Since 2015 I have worked with individuals and groups to overcome the barriers that get in the way of achieving goals, using ‘Immunity to Change’ process.

Working with me

It is important that in being with me you feel heard, met and attended to with kindness.

If you would like to meet me it’s helpful if we can have an initial chat on the phone, and arrange a time for a 30 minute chat / consultation. There is an opportunity for you to ask any questions you have about the therapeutic process and the way I work, and for me to find out a little bit more about what is going on for you at the present moment. From there we can make an informed decision about whether we want to work together.
