Suffolk Mind's Counsellors
The most important ingredient between a counsellor and client is the one to one relationship and trust built between you. We currently have counsellors that are trained in the following fields of counselling: Person Centred, Integrative. Telephone, Dementia and Psychodynamic. However this changes every time we take a new counsellor on, and its not what they have been trained in that is important it’s the value of the one to one relationship.
