"When you are setting on a journey, do not seek advice from those who have never left home"

~Rumi

There may be times we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope with something from our past, present or future. Facing up to reality can be difficult or daunting. Sometimes we cannot verbalise or share our feelings and thoughts with friends and family and it can affect our own wellbeing - physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. Counselling will give you the opportunity to explore and make sense of the things in your life that may seem confusing or unsettling for you. 

I welcome you by offering you a safe and confidential private space where you can feel comfortable to express some of your inner thoughts, feelings, fears and hopes in a non-judgemental environment. 

Are you feeling anxious, sad, lacking confidence or simply cannot understand what you are feeling and why?

Maybe you are encountering one of the following...

Loss of a family member, friend or pet

An awkward or upsetting work situation

A family or relationship dilemma

Health issues

Ecological or Environmental distress

Received bad news of your own health or that of a loved one

In a difficult transition or questioning your worth or your identity

Looking for meaning in your life or need support to make changes in yourself or your life

Distressed or anxious over the on-going Covid-19 situation and the new challenges we face

Struggling with low mood, depression or anxiety

Miné made me feel at ease and just was able to get me to open up. Everything was handled with my best interest in mind. I am very thankful for the help

Mr R

“Wow! Mine is a great counsellor and I’d highly recommend her…”

I saw Miné for a total of eight sessions and her style and compassion is amazing. I couldn’t talk to family or friends about my feelings but Miné makes it so easy to talk to.
