What do our clients think of our services?
"When I finished CBT with Open Minds, I felt lost, very alone and isolated. I had been informed by a friend of the Mindworks programme and it sounded like just the help I needed – general ‘life support’ rather than more formal therapy / counselling.
In attending my first appointment I never for one second considered volunteering as a suitable option for me and the idea itself horrified me. I went with a view of finding what day to day support there was available in order to help me regain some control over my life and prepare and support me into returning to work in a self employed capacity as I was unable to face this on my own.
At the first meeting I developed a great interest in the project itself. Having suffered with mental health issues most of my life I recognised the value and need of such a programme and immediately was very keen to get involved in a voluntary capacity.
Upon doing so, and even in such a short space of time, I have found this to be the best possible therapy for me that I can imagine. Having initially stated that I would prefer to do work at home rather than in the office, I find that every time I am at the office, I want to commit more time to the project and actually physically being there – something which still surprises me since only a short while ago, I never thought it possible that I would want to be in that sort of social / work environment.
It is the one constant thing in my life that makes me feel good and better about myself. I feel more valued and respected as an individual than ever before, particularly in a work capacity. My family and close friends have stated that they see a sparkle and passion back within me every time I talk about it – things that have been buried for so long.
Although I recognise that I am in effect providing something to the project itself which is hopefully of benefit, this is not what comes to my mind when I think about it. All I can focus upon are the fundamental benefits I am personally gaining, firstly from the project itself but also from my involvement. It makes me want to give as much back as I possibly can because of what it is actually doing for me. I cannot praise the project and people nearly enough for how much I feel this is making a huge difference to my life. I get really quite emotional and overwhelmed when I think about it as I consider this to be such a crucial part of my life in enabling me to get back on track. I honestly do not know where I would be today without this project both by being involved and through the unbelievable support that is provided, when I need it, rather than having to wait for an appointment. I only wish this had been available years ago and that I had heard about it much sooner.
I question whether this would have been a better choice for me either instead of or before attending more formal CBT."

What do our associates and friends think of us?
"Thank you for the valuable feedback. Kieran seems to have really benefited from coming to the group and has regained a lot of his motivation to get out and about. Despite this being a really difficult thing for him to do he managed to overcome his anxiety. I’m sure that his contact with yourself helped to prepare the ground for him.
Many thanks for all your support"

What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)?
Our coaching sessions and workshops are based on ACT:
“A revolutionary mindfulness-based programme for overcoming stress, anxiety, depression and anger, based on a best-selling book ‘The Happiness Trap’ by Russ Harris a General Practitioner and leading authority on stress management”
The aim of ACT is to help you live a rich and meaningful life while effectively handling the pain that inevitably comes with the struggles of life. You don’t have to struggle alone contact us to:
- Reduce stress and worry
- Rise above fear, doubt and insecurity
- Handle painful thoughts and feelings more effectively
- Break self-defeating habits
- Improve performance and find fulfilment in your work
- Build more satisfying relationships
- Create a richer and more meaningful life
We believe that sessions with a coach can deliver real benefits. Each session can last up to one hour. When working with you, the coach will:
- Discuss with you any difficulties that you are having.
- Help you to understand why you are feeling the way you do.
- Help you to decide what you would like to work on first.
- Introduce you to self-help materials and exercises
- Suggest some other supports that may be of use.
- Help you develop an action plan to deal with your difficulties.
We believe that one-to-one sessions can really help especially if you decide that a group course is not best for you due to anxiety.
What would one of our 200+ clients say?
"Hi Ian and Lesley
Thank you for being able to see me last week. It helps enormously for me to be able to pop in to see you and have someone to talk to.
Coming to the Mind Works Project helps me in lots of ways. When my best friend died last year there was little left for me to live for, but through your group and other support (including my first and only mentor during 30 years & more of health and other problems) I've begun to regain some hope, self-confidence and motivation.
While the counselling I've had through 'Open Minds' and others has played an important role in helping me understand my depression and other health and personal problems (and helped me draw a line under many issues) your organisation and support is providing another important part of the jigsaw — skills and techniques to help try set about changing things. Though I felt I made a lot of progress — this wanting to try to turn my life around but not knowing how to go about it has been the missing part of the jigsaw. The Group's help on other levels such as the opportunity to meet up with others with similar problems, share experiences and provide mutual support.
Having struggled with depression and its effects for more than 30 years, I feel lucky to at long last have some of the kind of support I've needed for so long. I know if it wasn't for the Mind Works Project and your warmth and kindness I would be in far worse shape than I am in at present.
Thank you for your on-going help and support."
