Psychological Counselling

With guidance into calmer waters

“The only constant in life is change.” – Heraclitus

 

Accepting the change and taking time to reflect on the things we value highly, on our relationships, on how we manage the time we have and on how to fill it with things we enjoy, can be hard.

 

It is normal to get sidetracked every now and then. This can affect the mood, the performance or the quality of life.

 

If you feel that the changes are overwhelming, that what you do and what surrounds you is not making you happy and fulfilled anymore, it is time to initiate a conscious change.

 

Feel free to contact 2 Kind Minds for a counselling session, which is provided by a licensed Psychologist of PsyMetta.

About

Dipl.-Psych.
Heide Nuutinen

Founder of 2 Kind Minds and PsyMetta, licensed Psychologist (by Valvira), certified Relaxation Therapist with over 10 years of experience in online counselling.

Psychology

For me Psychology always found answers to my questions of WHY we think or behave in a certain way. During my studies I found it especially interesting to learn what motivates people, what defines their interests and how to help them to define what they need, do what they enjoy and become who they want to be.
During the years I met many great people and we often learned and inspired each other. Being open to challenge a belief or trying out something new is only one benefit of my profession. When I come in touch with a new technique, a helpful exercise or a fascinating story, I try them out before I implement them in my work. This constant development helps me and my clients to progress and grow every day. This journey is ongoing and I enjoy every step of the way.

Rising Awareness

During my work with many different clients from all over the world, I realized that feeling mentally unwell is still stigmatized and ignored in many countries and cultures.
For some people value equals productivity. That means that once someone feels overwhelmed or unwell, there is often guilt and shame arising as well. This makes an already difficult journey even harder. Negativity usually decreases the quality of life. One of my goals is to raise awareness for mental health related issues and support my clients in finding joy and meaning within themselves and in what they are doing. Both mental and physical health require awareness and care to thrive.

active Relaxation

Stress has always been influencing my life. I started being interested in meditation many years ago, read several books about different methods, came in touch with mindfulness and went to a retreat to learn how to meditate. I still use the techniques on a regular basis. The journey never ends and I continued to become a certified relaxation therapist and progressive muscle relaxation instructor because methods of active relaxation are a powerful tool when regulating the stress level.
Besides psychological counselling sessions, I also offer deep relaxation sessions and training to help my clients to find their favourite tools to successfully regulate their own stress levels. Proactive stress regulation helps to keep the stress levels at bay and save energy for things which increase happiness by balancing professional and private life e.g.: more time for family, reflection, sleep and exchange with friends.

Adding Value

In my work I try to add value to my client's life. I start by encouraging them to speak their mind freely, find acceptance for their own emotional state and set clear boundaries. As a next step I try to support them further by reclaiming time they thought was lost by restructuring the day, implementing new routines and training new habits. This is another wonderful way of supporting their mental well-being and increasing their chances to feel happy and fulfilled.

Feedback

Sustainable Self-care Webinar:

  • I found the practical advice about how to build sustainable self-care routines (e.g., find something that works in different settings) helpful. Most people probably know of techniques to try, but might struggle with building them into their routines, so I think this information is really important. I also thought that the guided relaxation was really well organised and executed. Your instructions were thoughtful, as you included a dry run with helpful photos before the PMR exercise and specific instructions if you e.g., suffered from foot cramps.

  • It was a very relaxing experience. They were both knowledgeable and friendly. It's a great service they are providing especially in these times. Thank you!

  • I liked the webinar as a whole, especially the explanations of the research and acknowledging that mindfulness and other techniques may not be applicable in many situations.

Psychological Counselling Sessions:

  • The professional seemed to be qualified and demonstrated a sense of empathy that's very much appreciated.

  • Very understanding and helpful professional. I can truly say that she cares about my well-being. Each session we make a ton of progress.

  • Very professional consulting, no judgment and always listening to your issue. Heide gives very simple and easy instruction/advice.

  • I like how Heide listens and does not judge and carries the conversation well!

  • I felt like during conversation with good colleague, I felt good to speak freely about everything.

  • Heide is a good listener and had important insights to help me reach my goals.

  • Heide is really great. She listens and then offers practical solutions and analysis of why I'm stressed or worried about a specific issue - she validates that what I'm feeling is normal and that there are ways to cope with the feelings. I really appreciate these sessions with her.
