Mates in Mind

I offer a professional confidential supportive space for issues including, grief, loss. anxiety and stress. This space you will find is a safe, quiet, non-judgemental environment where you will be given support to express emotions and feelings, at times more freely than with your family and friends, and where we can explore the issues that are of concern to you. This process will encourage you to gain new insights, increase awareness, self-esteem and new ways to move forward towards your goals.

I work with clients of all ages for long and short-term therapy.
If you are unfamiliar with counselling, it may feel quite daunting, I therefore encourage an initial consultation, so we can meet before any future decision is made. In this initial session you will have the opportunity to tell me what is distressing you and ask any questions that you may have. I will also explain more about how I work. If you would then like to arrange future sessions these would normally be on a weekly basis at an agreed time.
