Natalie Owen Dip Couns
Welcome to Mindful Matters Counselling, My name is Natalie and I am a qualified integrative counsellor. I am an individual member of the BACP which is the professional body for counsellors and psychotherapists. From personal experience I understand how difficult and overwhelming life can be, I also understand that it can be daunting seeking help through counselling.
I believe that a good therapeutic relationship is the most important part of counselling. It is important to me that you feel welcome and comfortable. I have a warm approach; offering acceptance and empathy in a safe, non-judgemental space in which you can feel supported and heard.
Whether your experiencing the breakdown of a relationship, a bereavement, feeling anxious or depressed or just want to talk to someone who won’t judge, I believe I can help. Together we can explore the challenges you are facing and help to make sense of what you are feeling; so that you may be able to lead a more authentic and happier life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling. As part of my training I worked for three charities; providing counselling for clients age 18 years and up. I have experience working within a hospice, counselling those that are facing a bereavement, are bereaved or have a terminal illness.
I have also worked with survivors of domestic violence and have experience working with Generalised Anxiety Disorder as well as depression, trauma and low self-estem
Prior to my counselling training I became a befriender with SANDS ( Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society).I helped to facilitate support groups for those affected by the loss of a baby during pregnancy or shortly after birth.
