Alys Glover

Hello, my name is Alys. I am very fortunate to be doing what I love the most, helping to create change in people's lives

I am a professional, qualified and accredited counsellor, psychotherapist and mindfulness teacher. I have worked and trained in the field of emotional health and mindfulness for the last 20 years, with mindfulness being a central path to my life.

“Understanding is Love.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

This has inspired me greatly in my lifetime, and my life’s journey has been to study and learn, cultivating skills to really see, hear and understand people on a deep level; and of course this had to start with me understanding myself, and the healing that this understanding has brought me.

When we feel understood, we feel loved, and accepted for our own uniqueness, and it’s through this acceptance that real healing occurs. There is much pain in not being seen, heard, and known for whom we truly ‘be’ and much inner discomfort and disconnection when we don’t know who we truly are.
