SCROLL DOWN FOR CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
During 30 years in my home-based practice, I have gathered many tools and skills to help you explore, understand and appreciate yourself. Any issues can then be approached from a new and more self-empowered perspective.
For me acting as a counsellor means being a human with feelings and views, equal to you as the client, and open to connecting with you in a real way. I see my clients as human beings dealing with life challenges, not as patients who have something wrong with them. My approach is Soul Centered.
In these challenging times, it may be difficult to feel good enough, to make relationships work or to find true motivation and contentment. For many people this is not an easy world to live in and it is so very understandable that issues arise.
A bit of independent, experienced, compassionate help can make all the difference. Then self-criticism, self-sabotage, conflicts, anger, relationships (or lack of relationships), depression and anxiety can be understood and resolved and a new direction can be found.
Some of the tools I may use are
☆Inner Child ☆ Focusing ☆ Mindfulness
☆ Voice Dialogue ☆ Non Violent Communication

Mina is a safe place, free of judgement and full of love. She has been a wonderful helping hand in my journey of self discovery.
When I first went to Mina, I was very vulnerable and unable to cope due to a bereavement and an ongoing family problem. Having never had counselling previously, I found Mina to be understanding, non-judgemental, easy to talk to and a good listener. Extremely helpful. Mina helped me work through my emotions, understand them and to enjoy life once again. If ever I feel I am struggling, I would contact Mina immediately.
I had 5 sessions with Mina and can honestly say it changed my life and gave me the courage and confidence to end an 11 year relationship which was draining my energy and causing resentment. I went from worrying about not being able to cope on my own to feeling like, of course I would be fine on my own.
Before seeing Mina I often was in a subconscious state of feeling useless, pathetic, disempowered, not worth listening to or worthy of support, and basically unloved and unlovable. Through healing negative childhood experiences, I came to a place where I knew myself to be loved, and many areas of my life began to happen as I wanted them to and flow beautifully.
Mina has enabled me to touch the deep routed layers of my behaviour that no longer served me. Her reassuring and gentle approach enabled me to awaken and discover the potential within me, that I now can look to independently for continued exploration of the self. I can now embrace the challenges that life throws at me with an open heart and a sense of wonderment. Forever grateful for our time together.
Mina is a remarkable and lovely person. She provided me with a safe and loving place in which to explore areas of my childhood which I hadn't realised were creating negative patterns in my current life. Through her empathetic listening and reflecting skills, and by helping me to finally engage in inner child work (which I had previously resisted), she has enabled me to go from a place where I felt paralysed and trapped, to feeling free to do the things I truly want to do. I am still working on my own patterns and it is a great comfort to know that Mina is there to help when I need her. Thank you Mina for everything.
Inner Child work has allowed me to connect to that voice within. When things start to feel out of balance, I will use the voice dialogue that Mina taught me, and am able to offer myself comfort and reassurance at times when I most need it. This has been a blessing, as I have stopped waiting for others to make me feel better. The experience reminded me that all the answers and healing are within me. Thank you Mina for all your guidance and support xxxx
Mina really can help you find you! :) I trained as a counsellor and have over the years experienced different types of therapists. I feel very blessed to have received such good support from Mina. I truly feel she is one of the best counsellors I have met and I believe she was born to the work. She offers something that is exquisitely gentle and can be wonderfully challenging. Mina is a 'place' where I have felt Free to be myself warts and all, deeply Heard, Felt, Understood, Held, Accepted, and dare I say Loved.
Mina's inner child work has allowed me the space and safety to explore deeper into myself than I would ever have been able to do alone. With Mina's help, I have been able to identify and manage my unhealthy behaviour and feel more prepared for what life throws my way, knowing I have tools and methods to aid the process. She has encouraged me to navigate my way through life with ease and trust in the universe, and I feel more confident and able to find quick solutions and make better decisions. This has enriched my life to an incredible level.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.
