Main Speaker

Helen Thorne is Director of Training and Resources at Biblical Counselling UK and an experienced counsellor. She formerly worked with London City Mission and has written several books.

Having faced various struggles in her youth, Helen was surrounded by  wonderful friends, of whom some were Christians. Their patient kindness intrigued her and led her to discover more of Jesus over time. As she came to trust Jesus for herself and matured in the faith, people started to ask how she stopped self-harming and how she was handling ongoing battles with anxiety and depression. She has been privileged to be able to give her testimony on a number of occasions  and point people to Jesus.

Helen enjoys Thai food, music and spending time with her cats.
