Mind in Balance journey began in 2013 due to the collective observation of partnership relations, friends, colleagues, staff and clients within the Health and Social Care sector as well as other settings.

It was through this experience Mind in Balance manifested. Our passion is to offer the opportunity for individuals to develop their authentic self, explore choices, make inform decision about their Well Being and take charge of their lives. Our core skills set ranges from providing Counselling, Coaching, Mentoring and delivering workshops.

Alongside this is the preventative work whereby Mind in Balance support young people in raising their awareness so that they can take charge of their lives now and seize the opportunity to know and grow themselves.

The question you might be asking is why these three approaches? Mind in Balance believe that Counselling, Coaching and Mentoring are effective interventions in moving people through the different stages of their life journeys.

We can passionately advocate this due to our own personal understanding and experience of these therapeutic interventions as well as the numerous national findings that supports our practice.

Within Mind in Balance we work towards you disrobing labels and embark on a journey of self-awareness, enlightenment and evolvement hence why we see those who access our service as ‘students of life’.
