Mia is skilled in counselling. Having space to talk, and having some-one who really listens can be an amazing experience that words can’t really describe. Added to this, cognitive behavioural therapy can help you to gain skills and techniques to manage difficult feelings.  Finally, hypnotic and NLP techniques can get you back in touch with the positive, strong, loving, relaxed part of you that is in there, some-where.

So, whatever you may be struggling with, therapy and counselling can get you through it  more quickly and help you come out the other end feeling stronger and more positive.  Mia’s approach is an experienced, eclectic mix, but it is always designed to get you back to the you that you want to be, as quickly as possible.
