Teri Spinks

Holistic Counsellor and Well Being Therapist

Holistic counselling incorporates all aspects of you and your situation.   I do not work to a one size fits all approach. I work before and after sessions to monitor, evaluate and plan future sessions. I  love the work that I do, helping you is not a hardship for me but a joy, and a precious one at that to be able to work at a really deep level of understanding with someone.

The most important thing I tell clients as soon as they come to me is that, “There is nothing wrong with you. You are already whole, perfect and complete. There are just some temporary blockages stopping the flow in your life”. Those blockages, large or small, are beliefs and behaviours that might have been true at some time in your life, but are no longer true and are not working for you now. It’s my job to figure out what they are, change them and get you unstuck.

The well-being part of what I do means we work to restore psychological and physical health and bring balance back into your life: reducing stress, anxiety, depression  and perceptions of pain, using hypnosis, relaxation exercises, meditation and or  energy healing.

Therapies & services offered:

Counselling. EFT. Relaxation. Mindfulness & Meditation. Reflexology. Maternity Reflexology. Energy Healing. Corporate Work.

I guess you're here because you're looking for some help.... and what a minefield it is trying to find someone, so here is the bit where I explain what I'm like and how I work.

I view therapy as an opportunity for every person to have a confidential, supportive, and guided experience towards personal growth and facing life’s unending challenges. My style of therapy is very much like my personality: down to earth, humble, funny, compassionate.

I have a sense of humour, and I encourage my clients to adopt a more relaxed attitude too. I offer empathy and plenty of support. If you're expecting a blank screen or a robot, I'm probably not the right therapist for you. I embrace my "human-ness". I'll laugh & celebrate with you. I'll offer you authenticity and transparency, which sometimes comes in the form of an occasional necessary dose of reality. I consider each person who I work with totally unique in their experiences, and therefore I use a combination of evidence-based therapeutic techniques to best interpret, advise, explore, suggest and support.

Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach and so I aim to provide you with an unique response.

I’ve experienced some tough times in my life, so I've got my own life experiences to draw from and 20 years experience of working with people helping them break free from emotional and physical pain, become more balanced, healthier and happier with themselves. That's what you want right? to be balanced, have a more positive outlook and be at peace with yourself isn’t it? It doesn't matter what the heading is: Anxiety, Depression, Loss, Relationship break up, Panic Attacks, Hopelessness, Anger, Insomnia, Grief, Miscarriage, Sexual, Physical, Emotional abuse, the list goes on. 
If you're thinking you may need some support and you're not sure what, how, who exactly, lets have a brief chat first and take it from there, I offer a free consultation.

Its good to talk, Teri x
