We are a not for profit, organisation providing a range of professionally recognised training and therapy services that supports, empowers and values individuals.
All of the money that we make is ploughed directly back into Supporting Minds so that we can continue to grow and support even more people with affordable talking therapies.
At Our Heart
We truly believe that counselling and psychotherapy should be available to everyone, not just for resolving problems but also as a way of exploring who we are. Only by getting to the core of our being through self exploration can very real, lasting change occur where we are free from the pressures and expectations of others.
We are changing the way that we, as society view talking therapies in the UK. We want individuals to use our service as a way of keeping healthy minds rather than something to access only in times of crisis. We are challenging the way that we can access talking therapies that we truly need by creating another option to the NHS and private therapies. We are the bridge between the two, encouraging individual responsibility and re-empowering individuals to take control of their own health.
Carl the Therapy Cat
Meow! I’m Carl and I am a therapy cat in training at Supporting Minds.
As I am still so little I won’t be in any therapy sessions just yet, but my mummies will let you know as soon as I am ready.
I will be limited to certain areas of SM so that those that aren’t keen on cats won’t be disturbed by me and for those that are allergic we will have ‘cat’ free spaces for you to attend therapy. Although we dust and hoover daily and will have cat free spaces please be mindful of your own allergies as we want to create a safe space for everyone but recognise that this isn’t always 100% possible.
If you don’t want to meet Carl please let the office know before your appt, we will be alerting current clients when we send out appt reminders and advising all new clients when they make initial contact,
I hope to bring unconditional love and calmness to my therapy sessions as soon as I am ready.
