Hello and a Warm Welcome
Are you facing challenges that life often throws our way but finding it difficult to work through them, or feel that something isn’t quite right and feel overwhelmed all of the time? Are you looking to make changes in your life but are not sure where to start, or even how to start?
At some point we all struggle with concerns or troubles that may inhibit our happiness and wellbeing.
We all need help from time to time in our busy hectic lives and that’s ok. All too often we struggle to know who to ask for help as everyone else seems to have their own problems and we feel guilty reaching out as we don’t like to feel like a burden, so we are left feeling alone and isolated not knowing where to turn.
Therapy provides you with a safe place to explore your situation in a safe, supportive and confidential environment with someone who can empathise and understand your situation and help guide you to solutions, new ways of thinking, or just give you space to explore your thoughts and feelings.
Mind Calm Counselling are based in Milton Keynes and offer a wide variety of helpful therapies to help guide you make simple changes and lead the life you want live putting you back in control and improving your mental health and wellbeing.
Covid-19 Update Due to the Covid-19 situation I am currently offering online therapy this can either be via video conferencing or via telephone whichever you find most comfortable. In addition, and subject to our lovely British weather I also offer outdoor therapy sessions.
It’s understandable and perfectly natural that you may feel nervous about seeing a therapist for the first time. Most of my clients feel this way so it’s really important that when we first speak or meet you feel welcomed, comfortable and at ease.
I hope that by sharing how others have experienced working with me it will give you some comfort too.
Using an integrative approach a wide variety of symptoms can be treated. Recognising that everyone is unique and will experience these symptoms in different ways we can work through different approaches and explore different solutions that feel right for you.
You will be welcomed into a comfortable and safe environment where we can talk through how we can work together to bring greater understanding to your symptoms and help you back to increased mental health and wellbeing. I offer a discreet, professional and ethical service completely tailored to your needs respecting your values, personal, cultural or religious beliefs.

Loss can be many things, it can be the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job you loved dearly, loss of a pet, or loss of a relationship you held dear. Grief and loss are one of the most difficult things to go through in life and not something you can do without some form of support. This is where therapy can help. Read more on grief and loss here.
Relationships and Divorce
In our lives we have a number of different relationships – with friends, family, work, or being married or in a relationship. From time to time we all have difficulties in these relationships which we find hard to resolve, or we face a difficult ending within a long term relationship that we are finding upsetting and emotional and are not sure which way to turn. Therapy can help you explore thoughts, feelings and emotions and provide support to help you find workable solutions.
Having a healthy self esteem allows us to achieve what we want in life and have a positive outlook, it is our view of how we see ourselves but often we find ourselves struggling with the belief that everyone else is better than us, that we are not good enough and we begin to focus on our weaknesses not the wonderful strengths that we all have. Talking therapies allow you to look at where you are now, and explore how you can begin to build a healthy self esteem. Find our more about self esteem here.
Sleep is an essential component in our continuing health and well-being but sadly in our fast paced lives nowadays sleep problems are sadly a common occurrence. Therapy can help look at some of the reasons why your sleep may be disrupted and look at different ways of helping you sleep better and enjoying more regular sleep patterns by exploring some techniques and strategies that can help you.

The pressures of life can leave us feeling stressed and sometimes overwhelmed. In small does Stress can be helpful, when working properly, stress helps you stay focussed, energetic and alert.
