Welcoming Mindfulness

CONSENT FORM

Counselling can be beneficial for anyone who is struggling with a wide range of mental health issues or life challenges. While everyone experiences stress, sadness, or difficult life transitions at some point in their lives, some individuals may find that these challenges become overwhelming and interfere with daily functioning. Anyone who is struggling with a mental health issue or life challenge can benefit from counselling. Welcoming Mindfulness can provide support, guidance, and a safe space to work through difficulties and develop strategies for moving forward.

At Welcoming Mindfulness, we create a non-judgmental environment and follow a wide range of techniques for the counselling sessions, to equip the clients with life-long personalized techniques that can help them navigate through life, in a healthy and wholesome manner.
