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.

I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Aarun on many occasions over the past 13 years. Aarun is a skilled professional who brings both his heart and his sharp analytical mind to many different settings. Clients I have referred to him over the years have always returned to me with their personal feedback of how safe they felt and how insightful he was of their plight. I would always recommend Aarun, especially for both individual counselling and also for workshop facilitation
