When Lucy recently recommended Katharine Minton to knowitall.ch, we knew others could benefit from this English-speaking counsellor, "Going through therapy with Katharine has been a life-enriching process. One reason why Katharine is such a good fit for me is that she enables me to understand better what's going on for me. I am in control and she journeys with me. She has helped me move forward with my issues. I would thoroughly recommend Katharine to others who are seeking a counsellor who listens with empathy and who is attentive, engaged, kind, and knowledgeable."

Katharine Minton offers counselling to help people with a wide range of issues such as:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • trauma
  • grief
  • issues in relationships
  • personal concerns

She describes herself as an integrative counsellor using a variety of interventions tailored to clients' individual needs. The relationship with clients is of fundamental importance and she aims to create a warm, supportive and confidential environment to help people address their specific needs. The interventions she uses include:

  • person-centered therapy
  • cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • gestalt therapy
  • creative interventions
  • mindfulness

Healthy Eating Top copy

By Laraba Friedman, Balanced Healing

As I celebrated the New Year with my family, I asked each one of them what they would like to give back – the answers were:

  • to continue to raise money for a friend’s education in Africa
  • to lower personal plastic consumption
  • to be vegan 2 x week (at least)
  • to continue eradicating waste at school through a special committee
  • and to befriend an older person in the community.

I was proud. As for me, I want to continue on my minimization of plastics and to create a pace where I am able to enjoy the moments without wishing them away. And… because of who I am, I want to continue my adventure to a healthier gut!

Where are you with your thoughts for 2019?

Want to join me on the path of a healthier gut (and mind)? If so, I invite you to participate in one of my Healthy GUT….Healthy YOU, 4 week workshops starting 17 January.

This course is a great way to get to know your body (and its limits) and to take note of what is over ‘committing’ in the physical and emotional sense.

I recommend people do my workshop twice a year, as it gets you back to basics and thinking about a healthier way of living. If you have already done one course then why not try it again? You do have the tools but from personal experience, it’s much easier to do it with others.
