Counsellor

Hi I’m Aileen, I have been passionate about counselling for many years. I have worked in an NHS setting providing counselling services in Cardiff to people from all walks of life helping them with a large variety of issues they have been facing.

It always amazes me how much talking helps people get perspective in their lives and allows them the space to make decisions about the things that effect them. I am used to dealing with issues ranging from extreme crisis situations to helping people who just feel a bit stuck in their lives. I have always been a good listener so found these skills were well suited to being a counsellor.

Give me a call and we can have a chat about how counselling can help you.

Hi, I’m Pippa. I have recently joined the Body Mind Clinic and very much look forward to working here.

I have been practising as a counsellor since 1991 and have a wide range experience from work in different settings including different cultural settings, people with both physical and learning disabilities and those facing the end of life and dealing with grief.

The driving force that underpins my work is the desire to help people change if that’s what they want. To help them to feel freer, stronger and more fulfilled.

Talking about what troubles us sounds so simple. After all we do it all the time. But my experience convinces me still, after more than 30 years of doing this work, that talking with a therapist who is trained to listen in an active and dedicated way and building a therapeutic relationship together is a powerful healing process.

It gives you, the client, a safe and non-judgemental place to freely explore your feelings and clear your mind which in turn eases anxiety, confusion, depression and doubt : these are words that attempt to describe a whole host of distress that life events can cause us. That easing can then open up the possibilty of an empowered and hopeful way forward and enable you to make choices that ultimately enhance the quality of your life.

My approach is integrative which means that together we look at this immediate point in your life, what led to it and the many aspects and dimensions of your world that are affecting you ; some within your control, some not ; some negative and destructive and some positive and nourishing. By reflecting on the complexity of you life in this way you can shift perspective and see it differently like the changing patterns of a kaleidoscope.

I prefer to meet face to face but if you’d like to talk to me before booking a session please feel free to call me and we’ll take it from there.

Hi I’m Helen, I work here at Connected Counselling at The Body Mind Clinic as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I love my job and the fact that I work so closely with my clients as we work together through the various issues we all encounter on this rollercoaster of life! I have quite a varied experience from working with individuals with emotional difficulties to those who have had difficult and traumatic experiences. I am person centred which mean I place you at the heart of our working relationship. By working to heighten awareness through warmth, openness and presence, my aim is to create a safe space for clients to move forward with optimism and strength and to live happier and healthier lives. I’m very experienced in what I do and find that always helps put my clients at ease knowing they can talk to a professional in a safe environment. 

I always suggest having at least a chat on the phone to see if you are comfortable in engaging in us working together. I’m also happy to meet face to face to see if you’d like to book in for an initial session. You should always be 100% happy in engaging in talking therapy as the dynamic between client and counsellor is pretty important! I look forward to meeting you. 

Before embarking on a career in Psychotherapy I have spent over 30 years working in the NHS as a qualified Nurse and Health Visitor. I have undertaken further training running parallel within the mental health field. I have accredited qualifications in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Motivational Interviewing/Change Behaviour Management whilst working with individuals who are experiencing drug and alcohol and co-existing mental health difficulties. I have also a specialist interest in Post Natal Depression, supporting those women who are experiencing emotional and psychological ill health in the peri-partum period.
