About Us

Welcome to Mindful Crossroads, a confidential counselling service established by Karen Cummins for individuals and families living on the Tweed Coast and Southern Gold Coast.

With the use of solution focused therapy, my aim is to encourage people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds to understand their lives, generate solutions to overcome difficulties and to live a mindful life. Through counselling, I will help you gain a greater comprehension of the issues concerning you, develop an increased awareness of your responses to situations, and assist you to identify the skills you need in order to move forward. Whether your challenges be big or small, I am here to help you. Together we will explore the difficulties you are experiencing and work towards empowering you to create positive life changes.

Areas of focus:

  • Individual Counselling
  • Family counselling
  • Parenting strategies
  • Managing stress, anxiety, anger and low-self esteem
  • Building confidence, strengths and resilience
  • Living a well-balanced and mindful life
  • Developing confident job search skills
  • Finding the way forward from grief and loss
  • Transitioning into retirement
  • Coping with the challenges of ageing

Mindful Crossroads offer a variety of counselling options regarding how and where your counselling sessions take place. These include:

  • In-office – this is the traditional sit down, face-to-face counselling which takes place in the privacy of my office.
  • Walk and Talk – this form of counselling is ideal if you prefer to be active whilst we talk. It can take the form of a walk along the beach or in a park and can help to relieve any nervous tension you may be feeling.
  • Telephone – perfect for those who find it difficult to attend a counselling session in person for a variety of reasons, or who live a considerable distance away. Your appointment can be conducted over the phone at a mutually agreed time.
  • In-home – this service is available for clients who prefer face-to-face counselling however are unable to attend in-office counselling. This may include the elderly, parents of very young children and people living with a disability.
  • Workshops – these are face-to-face intensive sessions for individuals and groups, usually held in my office or within a community setting.
