We all have the right to a happy and fulfilling life.
Sometimes we all need support and guidance to deal with strong emotions, relationships, and life’s challenges.
With a background in Social Work and Psychotherapy,
Mindful Therapies takes this into account, working from a ‘whole of life’ interpersonal viewpoint, all of life’s complexities and each person’s unique experience are respected and given a voice.
At Mindful Therapy Cairns we are a non-judgmental, compassionate & confidential service, and we believe that with the genuine support, people can move forward in their lives.
We can assist you to have a deeper understanding of your circumstances and recognise how to live an authentic life, and most importantly we LISTEN.
