In these difficult times it can be challenging to come to terms with the the changing environment or the direct effects that this global pandemic is having on you, your family or loved ones. 

It is important to find the time and space to process the impact it is having; the changes in life circumstances, the difficult working conditions, the confinement and ultimately the loss of a loved one. 

My thoughts are with everyone at this difficult time. To those of you are putting themselves at risk to help us all.....Thank you. 

Open Mind is a counselling organisation in Bournemouth that offers one to one counselling.

(We now offer counselling via Zoom/Skype/FaceTime or WhatsApp).

It can be quite daunting knowing where to start when deciding to seek help through counselling. There are often more questions than answers and it can often seem quite overwhelming.

With so many choices, it can be difficult to find the service that suits you best. I believe that before you choose to commit to a therapy or a therapist it is really important that you get a chance to properly explore your options.

Counselling is a process, and that means that it is most effective when delivered in sequence and in a structured way. Finding the right therapist is an important element within therapy. Initially, I offer two sessions as a consultation. This provides a real experience of what happens in counselling. Enabling you to fully to experience counselling with me and decide if you have found the right Counsellor for you. With two sessions there is plenty of time to ask all the questions you need to and for the all the administration and other counselling preparation to be done. You are only charged for one session. 

I also believe that flexible opening hours promote an access to all environment. We offer 8.00 am till 8.00 pm appointments. Open Mind is primarily based in Winton, Bournemouth.
