My name is Julie and I’m a fully qualified counsellor registered with The National Counselling Society. 

I specialise in working with both adults and young people with a range of experience working with depression/anxiety, abuse, grief and loss, trauma, low self esteem and low self confidence, abandonment, personality disorders, sexuality, relationship problems, OCD and PTSD. I offer both Rewind Therapy  and Mind MOT. 

I will always listen without any judgement and always with empathy and will always try to truly understand your life and what you are experiencing so you feel heard and understood in a safe a confidential space. The therapeutic relationship we build will allow us to explore areas of your life that you are troubled by and hopefully  move towards more clarity and understanding allowing changes to occur. 

I will look forward to supporting you in your mental health and well-being.

Kate

Hello, I'm Kate.

I’m a qualified therapist and a member of the BACP.

With my authentic, down-to-earth approach I hold the belief in truly hearing and seeing my clients’ stories, and will walk alongside you in your journey to heal.

I have a real interest in working with trauma, abuse, PTSD and am trained in Rewind therapy.

I have worked with a variety of issues such as low self-esteem, anxiety, grief and loss, relationships, anger and much more.

I believe that we often become lost and even the thought of finding or believing in a new way of being can be overwhelming or unbelievable.

Child and Adult Counsellor

Joanna

Hi, I’m Joanna and I provide counselling to clients of all ages: children, young people and adults. My interest in counselling began as a student, when I worked for several years on a student helpline and listening service. I then worked for many years in the education sector (abroad and in the UK), before qualifying as a counsellor. 

I have always enjoyed working in caring roles and have a passion for working therapeutically with others. 

I have a person-centred ethos which places the client’s individual needs and experiences at the very heart of their therapy. 

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!
