If you came here looking for Mind Matters Therapies – don’t worry – you’re in the right place, but things are a bit different now!
After 6 years of running Mind Matters, alongside several other businesses, it became clear that it was time to amalgamate and combine them. I was spinning too many plates, it all felt disjointed and I felt like everything was too separate. I’m a qualified mental health therapist, and that was my first business. Since then I’ve grown so much. While still having regular and consistent clients I also began helping businesses build, and grow. I became quite the tech expert and soon found myself bang in the middle ground. Therapy, coaching, business advice – the lines were often blurred and I was, and am, absolutely ok with that!! We don’t live in boxes – you can’t just decide that one thing is therapy and another separate thing is coaching. I’m sick of the labels and the stigmas.
Basically – if you know something is missing, or you want to improve your life, lose the anxiety or get out of depression, I’m your woman!!
I frequently see clients who have already experienced some NHS offered therapy. For many, this has been helpful and for others, they’d disagree. In general, the NHS tends to offer CBT therapy, which in my experience works wonderfully for some issues, and not so well for others. Whatever your opinion of NHS therapy, I can confidently say that our sessions are a very different experience.
All that you really need to know is that during our sessions you will be able to speak freely, without fear of being judged and you will be respectfully listened to at all times. All of our sessions are completely confidential* and I will be asking relevant questions and clarifying information in order to provide you with the most appropriate therapy to help you to move forward.
*Every session between you, the client, and me, the therapist is completely confidential unless I believe there is a serious risk of harm to yourself or others. We will discuss confidentiality at our initial session and the sessions will only go ahead if you are comfortable with this.
