I am Aarun Naik, a psychotherapist based in Liverpool specialising in the mental health and wellbeing of farmers.

Through Strongheart, I offer group sessions on mental health awareness, stress management, resilience and mindfulness training. I also offer individual counselling, both face-to-face and online over a secure webcam link. As a counsellor I aim to be many things - clear, honest, practical and realistic amongst others - but, above all, I want you to know this:

It is possible to have a different relationship with your struggles.

If you’ve found yourself here because you’re experiencing difficult times, then welcome. Feeling overwhelmed, stuck in a low place, self-destructive or even suicidal is more common than you might think. Reaching out for some objective, confidential support is a brave and proactive step to take. I don’t promise a perfect or instant ‘fix’ - I’m sceptical that such a thing exists, truth be told - but being more present in the moment, feeling more fulfilled or energetic, challenging negative thought cycles and changing your relationship with the past are all achievable goals which we can work towards, together.

Appreciation

What they are saying about Strongheart.

Very helpful in giving me a much better understanding of the issues surrounding mental health in the agricultural sector. The workshop was really informative, interactive and, considering it can often be an upsetting topic, overall was positive. I left feeling much more confident in knowing how to detect signs of struggle, how to provide a listening ear and who and where to refer someone I was worried about. I would definitely recommend it to people working amongst farmers and also to farmers themselves.
