Caroline Maher
BSc (Hons) MIACP

Welcome to my website, my name is Caroline Maher and I am the founder of Sound Mind Counselling & Psychotherapy. I am a fully qualified therapist holding a BSc (Hons) in Counselling & Psychotherapy from the Institute of Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (IICP). I have worked for 25 years in the area of mental health, both with individuals and leading teams of people who deliver front line services. I am passionate about people's capacity to heal which I have witnessed first hand many times in my career. There are many roads to healing and therapy is one that can bring about long lasting positive change in your life. I love working as a therapist and accompanying people on their path to change and a more fulfilled, authentic life.

Reasons to seek support
Taking that first step is often the most difficult decision you will make. I promise you have nothing to lose by reaching out to me. I will support you to say a little bit about why you have contacted me. Below are some of the issues that I can support you with. 

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Relationship Issues
  • Depression
  • Physical or Mental Illness
  • Burnout
  • Childhood Trauma/Abuse
  • Self Esteem
  • Addiction
  • Life Transitions
  • Parenting Difficulties
  • Sexual Identity
  • About Therapy

    There are many reasons why we decide to reach out for support from a therapist. At any stage in our lives we can be met by challenges that interfere with our happiness and sense of wellbeing. Some of these challenges are caused by big events like a bereavement, a diagnosis of physical/mental illness or a significant relationship break up. At other times, we may feel out of balance or sad, our thoughts are negative and we are not connecting with the world around us. We are not quite sure what is causing this, we just know that we are not living a full life, something is missing or holding us back.
    As an integrative therapist I will provide a safe, confidential space for us to explore together. We will look at possible causes for your challenges and we will agree together the best approach for supporting you to overcome those challenges. This may take a very short time or you may find longer term therapy is best for you. We will always decide together.
