I am Juna Brookes, an accredited Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist.
I put my heart and soul into my work, love to support people and see the positive changes we can make together. It is tough for all of us in these unprecedented, uncertain times of Covid-19, but together we have to find the strength and wisdom to get through this!

Regardless of how challenging it is we should take it as life learning experience. We will overcome and celebrate later. There is always a rainbow at the end of the storm. I want to believe there is one going to be seen very soon.

There might be a lot of questions in our minds right now:
How do I handle a fear of catching the virus?
How can I handle the fear of my parents getting ill?
How do I deal with the anxiety of the unknown?
How do I deal with the loneliness?
Many people are experiencing not only the fear of the disease, we are experiencing the fear of the repercussions of what might happen. Businesses are closing, the planes are not flying, we can hardly see people out of our windows, communication is limited to Skype. It feels like an enforced pause. As though somebody has said: “Let’s turn it off for a while, let’s put the world on pause’’
Nobody wants to be affected by what is happening right now. We all would like to feel safe and secure and to continue with on with our plans and dreams. But these are challenging times, which can play on our minds as an unhelpful worries and overthinking. As a result we could have sleepless nights, constant crying, insomnia. Our minds are the most important tool we have to make choices and decisions now on how we want to cope. We could of course imagine the worst scenarios when watching the news, but we could choose to do something positive, to learn something new, to push ourselves out of our comfort zones, to explore new knowledge remain calm , cool and collected in order to do the right decisions.
I cooperate with multiple EAP ( employee assistant program) organizations who refer people struggling at work due to grief, stress, panic attacks, PTSD , depression, anxiety and other issues. My task is to provide them with solution focused psychotherapy and hypnotherapy so they can get back to work as soon as possible and in a much better place with the tools they need to help them to manage.
I have provided adults and teenagers with therapeutic sessions via telephone, Skype or in person.
