Mates in Mind

I'm an Accredited Counsellor with the National Counselling Society with sixteen years' experience in the therapeutic world. I'm in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, specialising in anxiety, depression, relationships and mindfulness with a spiritual slant. Together let's build a bridge from difficulties you may be experiencing to help you get to the other side towards a more contented way of being.

1 in 6 adults have experienced some form of anxiety / depression which means that there is a real need to help people in these areas. Anxiety is real and yet also entirely normal as a coping strategy for survival; but can at times get out of hand, which is where a professional experienced in helping people with anxiety can help.

When it comes to relationships, these can impact us greatly so if you are in a difficult relationship, newly separated or divorced I can provide a safe confidential space to process your feelings going forwards.

Perhaps you find yourself self-sabotaging or procrastinating.

Perhaps you continually find yourself doing EXACTLY what you don’t want to do.

I have a spiritual slant to my work but the most important thing is acknowledgement of YOU and where YOU are, and HOW you really want to feel.

Contact me for a free no-obligation chat – either by calling, texting or emailing me. I will endeavour to get back to you during working hours.

My hours of work are Monday - Friday from 11am, however please email or text to find a suitable mutually convenient time slot.

My track record has illustrated how effectively I work with people who reflect that they learned a great deal through working with me, reaching a greater sense of peace of mind and knowledge about themselves and as a result, feeling clearer about their lives.

I have also trained in BWRT® which stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a modern model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. It uses a logical, practical and down-to-earth working method in which it’s not necessary for you to talk about anything you would rather not discuss – the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead. BWRT® is unlike any other therapy you might have heard of or read about, using the latest discoveries in neuroscience coupled with your own unique brain processes to help you get better. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at http://www.bwrt.org.

Other tools I can use are meditation, mindful relaxation using hypnotherapy, also EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) which involves tapping on meridian points in the upper body to help alleviate a difficult feeling.

I am also working towards a qualification in Mindful Meditation with Sandy Newbigging, known as the modern day meditation method which I can teach you.
