Why “Opis” for counselling in Kent?

Emma Thompson/Opis Counselling

It took a long time to decide on a trading name for my work counselling in Kent, so why “Opis”?  After chatting it over with a  friend, I was inspired by the Roman goddess Opis of growth and abundance.

Her name is also connected to the word “opus”, meaning “work”, especially in the agricultural sense.  I liked the image of the seeds we plant today, carefully tended, giving us plenty in time to come.  Counselling is work, but I believe the personal growth and rewards which result are very much worth it.

The agricultural image seemed appropriate for Kent – a county called “The Garden of England” (although other counties also claim the title!) with its long history of agricultural production.
