Why counselling?

Counselling is a talking therapy that can help you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and to resolve emotional, social and mental health problems. 

It involves a professional relationship which aims to offer you a safe, warm and welcoming space to explore what is going on for you. Sessions are lead in confidentiality and protected by professional boundaries so that whatever is discussed in the room remains there. 

In general the aim of sessions is to help you to find better ways to cope, or to bring changes in the way you think and behave that will improve your mental and emotional well-being, however it can help with a wide range of specific conditions. Such as 

  • Stress
  • Anxiety and panic attacks 
  • Redundancy
  • Feelings of dissatisfaction
  • Relationship problems
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Depression
  • Isolation
  • Eating Disorders
  • Anger
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Bereavement
  • Adjustment/transition problems
  • Existential and spiritual crisis


Mindfulness based counselling is a contemporary form of therapy informed by Buddhist psychology, Western theory and Mindfulness practices. It is one of the longest established mindfulness based therapy and it is taught at the Karuna Insitute, United Kingdom. 

This way of working emphasizes a deep, ongoing awareness of one's body and mental processes for self-exploration and healing.The work is often viewed as a joint awareness practice in which the therapist accompanies the individual on  a journey into deeper levels of their experiences. Here the therapist serves as a facilitator, helping you focus attention inwardly and become aware of what you are experiencing in the present moment. 

Through this contemplative self-study, you may discover the historical roots of your problems and achieve a clearer sense of who you are. By processing this information in the present moment, you will hopefully let go of old habits and approach life with grater flexibility and creativity.
