Healthy Mind Counselling Service
Our easy to access weekly counselling service operates in Bury St Edmunds or Ipswich and provides personal and confidential one-to-one support from our counsellors for anyone aged 18+. Counselling offers the space, with an impartial counsellor to explore issues that are presenting in life and are causing difficulties. These could be relationships, family issues, personal crisis, bereavement or other problems you may be dealing with.
Is it for me?
Counselling is a process people seek when they want to change something in their lives or simply explore their thoughts and feelings. A counsellor is not there to tell you what to do – instead they will encourage you to talk about what’s worrying you. Counselling does not come in a cookie-cutter format and each session is generally tailored to the individual.
My life felt like it was in crisis mode, coming to Mind was the calmness I needed. I cannot thank the service enough.
How can counselling help?
- To help you understand yourself better and the way you think.
- Offers you the space and freedom to explore your own thoughts with an unbiased party.
- Can help you understand other people’s point of view better.
