About me

Hello and welcome to the profile for Dee Johnson @ Mindsoup Counselling Services.

I offer face to face counselling in my Westcliff , Essex based office and On Line Counselling via Phone, Webcam ( secure networks only Vsee or Zoom) and email counselling .

Looking for the right Counsellor can be confusing , overwhelming and sometimes a bit daunting, particularly if you have not had to do it before.

  • As a long term experienced and Senior Accredited Counsellor I fully appreciate and understand how hard  this can be, even just to choose or make that first call, so in order to help you as much as I can please read my profile below or check out my website for information, guidance and reassurance. Please note I also have associates that work for Mindsoup including both female and male Counsellors.

How can Counselling help you?

The main aim of Counselling is to give you the opportunity to work towards living your life in a more gratifying, peaceful, fulfilling and resourceful way.

Counselling can be useful to explore both past and present issues and blocks, even if it feels so confusing you are not sure where to start, its o.k as this can be worked out in therapy.

It is quite normal to experience times in our lives when we feel worried, confused, depressed, angry, low self- worth or anxious.

This can be caused through personal, Family, relationships, lifestyle or work issues

There are also times when it is difficult to identify why or where these unhelpful or worrying feelings are coming from.

Counselling can lead to an increased overall well-being, self-awareness, confidence, motivation and a greater understanding of difficulties and relationships and acceptance of difficult situations.

Every one can benefit from Counselling therapy as the concerns and worries we carry are unique to us.

I came into Counselling , with several years of training ,due to personal life experiences and experiencing its benefits and support. I am always respectful and mindful that it is always a privilege to be let into peoples inner thoughts and life.

What next?

Contacting a Counsellor for the first time is a big step to take and sometimes confusing finding one that you feel may suit you best and may also feel a bit nerve wracking or strange making that first contact.

Thats ok, and quite natural and I fully appreciate how hard it can be.

A good way of finding out if counselling is a good course of action  for you is to book an initial assessment.

Initial assessments are a Counseling session, helping identify and talk about your concerns and also give you an understanding and reassurance of how Counselling works, what happens in a session, answer any questions you may have and most importantly for you to feel sure that this is the right and most comfortable decision for you.

Therapeutic relationships are so important and you need to feel that you are happy and reassured with your choice.

I can assure you that you will be counselled in an environment that is safe, professional,confidential, non-judgmental and supportive as I am an experienced , qualified Therapist and I adhere to the Professional ethical guidelines required.

I offer short-term and long-term counselling with an Integrative approach to suit your needs and requirements.

Counselling Styles  Explained:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - CBT helps to find and implement coping mechanisms and alternative ways of dealing with concerns, problems or unhelpful behaviour. This can bring quick solutions and focus as well as life- long skills. CBT helps you challenge and identify your automatic thoughts.

Basically what we think affects how we feel, and how we feel affects our behaviour (which causes our actions and reactions). These reactions have a consequence to ourselves and others, which if not helpful can be addressed with CBT, giving more positive and constructive, healthy outcomes.

Person Centred Therapy - Encourages self- awareness and self -actualisation. Helps look at behavioural patterns and personality traits. Highlights unhelpful or destructive repeated behaviour.

In other words, it helps you work out who you really are, find true acceptance of yourself and discover what you can do to improve and grow emotionally to be the best you can possibly be.

                     “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
                                   (Quote from Carl Rogers- Founder of Person Centred Counselling)

Humanistic - A truly empathic approach, encouraging and supporting you to explore your feelings, enabling you to off- load your issues or upsets. This allows a safe and supportive place to out pour deep, buried and often very difficult and painful feelings, and look at how you can release them or find more helpful ways of dealing with them.

EMDR - The mind can often heal itself naturally, in the same way as the body does. Much of this natural coping mechanism occurs during sleep, particularly during rapid eye movement
(REM) sleep. Francine Shapiro developed Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) in 1987, utilising this natural process in order to successfully treat
Post- traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Since then, EMDR has been used to effectively
treat a wide range of mental health problem
