Bright-side well being was founded by Nicola Rowe. Nicola has spent over 13 years working successfully with young people in education as a counsellor and mentor.
The idea of Bright-side well being came about during this time as Nicola realised that many young people and their families were unable to access adequate support.
Nicola’s experience and contacts throughout the Borough have helped provide a platform to launch an independent support service for young people and their families which can be accessed right across Swindon and the surrounding area.
Nicola is a registered and fully accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists which means her practice has been judged competent and ethical by the National Association of UK Counsellors. She holds a current Enhanced DBS Certificate and is also a qualified Supervisor.
Natalie trained as a Drama teacher at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and has taught 11-16 year olds for over fifteen years. In her most recent teaching role Natalie was responsible for delivering therapeutic interventions and group work to identified students with Social Emotional and Mental health needs.
During this time she became interested in the mental health and well being of children and young people and began to teach relaxation and mindfulness techniques to help them balance the effects of stress. Seeing the positive outcomes Natalie decided to do further training in how to teach children and young people meditation. She is now working on her professional accreditation in teaching children and young people meditation, relaxation and mindfulness. She also has qualified teachers status and holds a current enhanced DBS certificate.
Nic and Nat are sisters and have been working together successfully for the past 12 years.
