Hello, my name is Sandra Dean and I am a mental health wellness coach. I have experience working as an integrative counsellor, professionally trained in person-centred, Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic theories, so that I can use the relevant therapies for each individual I see. I also offer Expressive Writing Therapy, Life Writing workshops and the use of Mindfulness. As a mental health wellness coach, I can help you to make the most of life, to achieve better coping mechanisms for mental health, and any other things you wish to achieve, I have suffered with mental health issues and currently work with clients of a local charity - a homeless shelter - as a counsellor. My rooms are in Rayleigh and Southend-on-Sea, Essex, but I can also make arrangements to see my clients at their home (10 mile radius of Rayleigh, Essex). Please contact me to find out more. To ensure I work to the highest standard, am totally confidential and continue to take part in regular training. My specialisms are working to beat depression, anxiety, stress, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder, but I can work with any mental health issues. I also specialise in relationship issues, family dynamics, self-esteem and confidence issues and working with life changes that are all too often unwanted and negative. I have a lot of experience working with homelessness, and associated adversities as well. I have campaigned for years against the stigma of mental health issues, and promote understanding, empathy and knowledge. I have written two memoirs based on mental health and a self-help book for overcoming depression and anxiety, and am well known in the field of mental health. EDAC logo
