Key Worker CounsellingMates in Mind

I am an Integrative Counsellor and my background experience is working with adult GP referrals and as a School Counsellor working with young people. Before I qualified as a counsellor, I worked in a primary school as a Thrive Practitioner helping children with social and emotional challenges.

I believe that relationship is very important in counselling work, so my approach to counselling is to build a trusting and honest relationship in a space that feels safe and then to work creatively and holistically to enable you to make connections and integrate parts of yourself that may have become suppressed or disconnected. I believe when you feel a deeper sense of connection between your thoughts, feelings, body and environment; you can experience a greater sense of wellbeing.
