About me

How do you choose a therapist? Is it cost? I cost a bit more so why would you choose to pay extra to see me?

I have worked as a therapist since 1996 & I have worked as a therapist in NHS since 2003! I have been through many personal and significant life changes and challenges so you will get someone who is real and open with you https://www.mindful-therapy.uk/about-me/

I have had 3 distinct separate trainings. (this is not the same as integrative which means one training) I am fully trained to Masters level qualifications in 3 distinct therapeutic approaches:

I have worked as a Counsellor providing Psychological therapies for over 25 years and am very experienced personally too. I am usually fully booked and when slots become available they are only available in the day-times. I do hope you find what you need.
