Diane Goodkind


Diane Goodkind is a Senior Accredited Counsellor of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (BACP) with over 30 years of experience working with individuals and groups.

She has worked in a wide variety of frameworks. These include;-
She was managing a team of therapists and setting up a counselling service for Westminster NHS working with homeless people. Some suffered with serious addictions compounded in many cases by past traumas and severe mental health issues. She created a treatment programme deemed so innovative that it was awarded the BACP National Award for the Advancement of Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2005.

She has organised and run group programmes for the Salvation Army, Arthritis Care and other National agencies. These enabled staff members, in a context of total confidentiality, to become more personally self-aware, improve internal team morale and help create a more cohesive, positive environment, where intense disgruntlement previously prevailed.
Diane is an experienced Consultant, Group Trainer and Facilitator, Supervisor and Mentor.

She has run a private practice throughout the years helping individuals address a range of stresses and personal issues.

A note on our language

Throughout this website, we use the term women when describing people who experience hormonal symptoms. However, we acknowledge not only those who identify as women require access to menopause and hormone health information. For example, some trans men, non-binary people, intersex people or people with variations in sex characteristics may also experience menopausal symptoms and PMS/PME or PMDD, and we warmly welcome everyone who needs this support in our clinic.
