About Us


Gaylia Mitchell        Debra Osborne        




About us – Specialist Skills

Gaylia and Debra  worked on a Forensic Mental Health Ward for many years within the NHS – They both co-facilitated groups with psychology so understood that small changes in behaviour can change lives! Having gained a wealth of experience they realised that more help was needed in the community.  They then decided to open their own private practice!

Debra has a specialist interest in Addictions and worked at the Addiction Clinic in Littlestone Hospital! She has also worked closely with Eating Disorders – Bipolar – Autism – Anxiety – Depression and Personality Disorders.  Debra worked as a volunteer for Victim Support so understands how the personal invasion of crime can affect someone. Debra is also a therapist with the Harmony Trust supporting people with cancer!

Gaylia has worked on a voluntary basis for Samaritans where she understands the pain  people feel when going through traumatic times in their lives.  She has also volunteered with Cancer patients going through their treatment with’ Look Good Feel Better’ to help with Self-Esteem and Confidence.  She now works with Harmony Trust!  Gaye has experience working with Personality Disorder – Depression – Bipolar and Anxiety.

They use a combination of:-

Psychotherapeutic Counselling

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Life Coaching and Mindfulness which they both have a passion for!

The practice offers a free 30 minute consultation to make sure that they are the right therapist for you.

This helps them understand your own unique set of challenges and from there together decide how to progress.

They are members of the National Hypnotherapy Society and the National Counselling Society and abide by their code of ethics. They are non-judgemental, empathic  and realise the importance of confidentially.

They are also therapists for Harmony Trust, which is a charity providing Free NHS Approved Complementary Therapy to those coping with Cancers or other serious life altering illnesses in Kent.

They are both committed to support you in your journey of change and can help you live your life the way you want!
