Welcome

Here at The Counselling Mind I do understand that choosing the right counsellor to work with may seem quite daunting, especially when you may be overwhelmed already by your situation. The information that I provide here may hopefully help you make that decision to take the next step forward.

Having qualified and been working in Integrative counselling for the past 13 years, I understand that for most, the umbrella term of counselling is a mindfield. I have realised that for most the need is for someone to understand what you are going through, and to help and support you to identify with your feelings, thoughts and behaviour.

I aim to be with you and support you by listening, understanding and reflecting back to you, how you are. I may challenge you on occasions but not until you are ready to be challenge with how you are thinking etc. An example would be CBT, Cognitive behavioural therapy that looks into and challenges your thoughts, feelings and behavioural ways.

For some a talking therapy can be freeing and for some some this can be the first time that they experience the freeness of just being theirselves. I will give you time to talk, think, and challenge yourself.

Below is the other bits about qualifications, I guess they have to go somewhere, to let you know that I am qualified and experienced in being able to support you.

Diploma in Integrative counselling (Post Graduate, BACP Accredited)
Certificate in counselling skills       ( BACP Accredited)
Certificate in Supervision                 (BPS Approved)

So don't be alone with how you are thinking and feeling. I offer to you, the space and time to feel safe and supported.
