What is Freeing Minds Therapy?

Integrative Person Centre talking therapy is a compassionate based and non-judgmental form of counselling that uses empathy to view each client as a unique and worthy individual with potential for change and personal growth. 

This therapeutic approach uses a combination of therapy styles to enable each client to experience counselling sessions tailored for their own specific needs.

Person Centered counselling always has the clients best interests at heart and encourages clients to experience self growth and effective positive change in a safe and confidential setting.

What we do
