What is Mindfulness & Compassion Based Counselling/Psychotherapy ?

Zoe Garden Mindfulness

Combining my 20+ years of clinical experience with a deep knowledge and practice of mindfulness and self-compassion I can offer you a powerful way to make the lasting changes you wish for. Informed by Buddhist psychology and grounded in the Rogerian client centred model together we will explore how this approach can resource you, bringing greater freedom and ease into your life and your relationships. Whatever your particular personal difficulty mindfulness and compassion based therapy helps us relate in a different way to our own mind-heart-body, growing our capacity to respond with more openness and joy whatever conditions we face.

Why Choose Counselling / Psychotherapy?

Perhaps a particular event or experience has disturbed or unsettled you, recently or in the past. You may just feel that it is time that you gave yourself the chance to try for a more satisfying and fulfilled life. Or perhaps simply you need to talk through your concerns confidentially with someone who isn’t a friend or family member. Whatever brings you to seek help, I will offer you a holistic, gentle and integral way to gain insights and grow authentically.

“the curious paradox is that when I accept myself as I am, 
then I can change” (Carl Rogers)
