Hello, I’m Jean McMinn. I’d like to extend a warm welcome to you.

Whether you’ve had counselling before or this is your first time seeking professional support, I’m glad you’re reaching out.

You might be troubled about the future or troubled from memories of the past. You could be having relationship difficulties, or you might just be looking for support while you try to make sense of the way you feel about yourself and your life. Perhaps you’re hoping to recover from bereavement, or you’re struggling to cope with daily anxiety.

Pain, trauma, grief, distress are all real. They are messages to ourselves signalling that that we want to heal something in our lives. Perhaps we want to live differently, to thrive, to feel at peace and not live from a wounded part of ourselves.

With almost 30 years’ experience as a counsellor, I’ve worked with a diverse range of people who’ve come to therapy with many different types of concerns, from trauma to challenges with depression, anxiety, bereavement, low self-esteem and relationship difficulties. I also have a special interest in working with women’s relationship to food and body image.

Your recovery is a unique and personal process and I believe I can support you during this difficult and challenging time in your life.

I have a wealth of skills and knowledge but believe that you are best placed to know what is right for you and what sits easy with your own values and beliefs.

I currently have a private counselling practice in Holywood and Belfast.
