Share our Passion for Therapy

Whilst we are rapidly expanding nationwide, our core values remain the same; accessibility, affordability and accessing therapy services proactively rather than reactively.

Everyone within Supporting Minds is passionate about holding space to encourage individuals to self actualise in their own unique way.

As we recognise each service users uniqueness, we also recognise each employees uniqueness and we are looking to expand our team to offer a modern, fresh approach to therapy services.

I cannot satisfactorily articulate how much this service has helped me.

If you need counselling this is the place to go.

Owen, Lincoln

Having a low-cost, self referral service like this was a GODSEND to me. The counsellors I spoke to were down to Earth, very empathic and very knowledgeable. Rapport is so essential in counselling and Supporting Minds was the perfect fit for me. Thank you!

David, Lincoln

Would thoroughly recommend the ‘Living with Butterflies’ workshop. Everything you could hope for and much more... and we came away with some brilliant coping strategies which we are using successfully. Thank you so much!
