Welcome to Kind Minds Counselling


I'm Paula and I started my counselling practice after a career in corporate communications spanning more than three decades. I have personal experience of the challenges I work with which gives me an ability to empathise fully while remaining non-judgemental. 

I specialise in working with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, family issues, low self-esteem and trauma. We will use our time together to take a closer look at these issues and create a plan for addressing them in a way that leaves you feeling in greater control. My clients generally experience a reduction in symptoms within 6-10 sessions and ongoing improvement thereafter.  

Although it may not feel like it right now, I believe that you are the expert on you which is why we will work at a pace and depth that suits you.

I try to be as flexible as possible, accepting that family and work commitments may mean that you need to change the time of your session  from one week to the next. Many of my clients choose a combination of in-person and online sessions for that very reason.

For those attending in person, I work from a room in a peaceful, rural setting so you will need your own transport .


If you're unsure if counselling is for you, why not arrange a free, no obligation call by texting me on 07496 356416?

Paula has enabled me to build on 'me' and subsequently my issues have become easier to understand and deal with. Paula is a really warm and welcoming person. She put me at ease which enabled me to open up and discuss aspects of my life that I haven't shared with my family and friends.
I couldn't have got where I am now without your support. Thank you!
I was having a really difficult time expressing my feelings and emotions were 
coming out in outbursts. Paula made my feelings feel real and I truly felt heard.
I couldn't recommend her enough!
Paula is kind, patient, down to earth, empathetic and really put time and thought into how she could support me with some very complex and traumatic issues I needed to work through. I have found it very difficult to trust people but found I could very much trust Paula. I would encourage anyone who is struggling to reach out. 

As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), I follow their ethical framework which gives you peace of mind that I am committed to upholding the highest levels of counselling practice.
