About Mindsmith Wellness
Here at Mindsmith Wellness, we look at the whole person. People are more than just a diagnosis or collection of symptoms. When a person survives trauma, the amazing survival skills that keep them safe can get in the way of them living a full life later on.
"Prior to counselling, I was dealing with unresolved trauma and anxiety. After getting in touch with Mindsmith Wellness, I knew I found the right counsellor to help work through my trauma. I was always given a safe space to communicate my emotions both positive and negative. I was provided incredible resources and coping strategies to apply to my everyday living to help manage my triggers and various emotional states. It has made such a difference and I’m in a much more positive headspace. It has improved my mental well-being and my relationships around me. I am a much more resilient person because of my choice to embark on a difficult yet rewarding journey."
“You [Kathryn] are so easy to talk to open and honestly without me feeling judged and I think the way you worked with me was explanatory and gave me reason and depth as to why I think and feel certain things and ways.”
What do we mean by trauma-informed?
"Trauma-informed" is a bit of a buzz word that means different things to different services and organisations. For us, it is both philosophy and practice.
