About us

Life can be hard at times – work, relationships, financial concerns, and health worries.  Sometimes these struggles ease on their own, or through strategies that we already have access to.  However, when it feels like you're stuck in a rut with your difficulties and can’t find a path away from your struggles; we can help you find your balance again.  Whether this is through understanding yourself more, or learning new strategies to manage the difficulties you’re facing, Balanced Minds has a variety of services that can help you get back on track.

Our approach is grounded in compassion, and the principles and evidence based effectiveness of Compassionate Mind Training (CMT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) developed initially by Professor Paul Gilbert.

Our team of therapists

Balanced Minds are passionate about providing different ways for people to access helpful, evidence based psychological interventions. We have a team of warm, caring and experienced therapists who provide individual, group, couples and family therapy.  We also run a variety of innovative wellbeing courses and retreats, and have a variety of audio and self-help materials that may help you learn to manage your difficulties in new ways.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
