About me

Maidstone Mindfulness Therapy    

          Mindfulness- Based Counselling for various issues. You learn mindfulness and address your individual issues, and any changes you want to make.
       

My aim with counselling is to listen carefully and offer you a space to think in a calm, non-judgemental manner. In this space we can work together to address your issues, thoughts, feelings, and any changes you want to make.

Life inevitably involves emotional pain, but through this approach you can learn to take a different perspective on your problems and your life. I will help you drop the struggle with emotional pain and find more vitality in your own life.
    
I use a Mindfulness-Based Therapy that helps you develop psychological skills to handle painful thoughts and feelings effectively. I work at a pace that suits you, so gradually your difficult thoughts & feelings have much less impact & influence on you. This then allows you to make changes, or put your energy into things you want to do.

This helps you accept what's out of your personal control, and commit to taking action that enriches your life. This is an evidenced-based cognitive behavioural type of therapy. It's a very active therapy that actually teaches you many psychological skills for you to use in your everyday life.

Mindfulness Therapy is an exciting new approach to deal with many types of distress including depression, anxiety, stress, and addictions.


I work using Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). 
This is Counselling for individuals.


Please contact me by Phone, Text or E-Mail with any questions you have or to make an appointment.
       
I can offer a  free initial  phone consultation. 

Please call to arrange counselling or the Mindfulness Course, or any for questions.
