Dr Helen Durell
Dr Durell completed her medical studies at UWA with specialisation in Rural and Remote and Aboriginal Health in 2009. Her initial hospital years were spent working at Fremantle Hospital, Peel, Albany and Armadale Health Campuses. Here she furthered her interest in General Practice with a prevocational GP Obstetrics term and then an extended term in Emergency Medicine.
Helen completed her specialist GP training in 2017 and she more recently trained in focussed psychological strategies to be able to provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Helen enjoys many aspects of family medicine, particularly women’s and children’s health, mental health and preventative health care.
Outside of medicine she is a busy mum of 4 young children and spends any free time wearing them out at our beautiful parks and beaches. Helen enjoys musical theatre, cross-stitch, cooking and creating overly themed parties for her kids.
Albany is Helen’s hometown and she finds it a privilege to be able to return to work in this environment and community.
