Making the decision to seek counselling is the first courageous step towards change. It may be a life altering decision or you may seek better self understanding and self acceptance. Whatever the reason I can be with you on that journey.
Person-centred counselling puts the emphasis of the client being at the centre of their process. I believe that the relationship between the counsellor and client is one of the most important factors in positive outcomes. It is a very compassionate and respectful way of working. I do not pretend to be anything other than I am and aim to build a relationship of trust with you so that it is safe to bring all aspects of yourself.
As your person-centered counsellor I offer you a unique relationship where I will:
Create a safe and confidential environment
Respect you, your attitudes and values
Value you as a unique person
Empathise with you and your situation
Listen to you without judgement
Allow you to go at your own pace
Help in understanding and accepting more about yourself
Be robust enough to hold you through painful issues
I have found that this unique environment and relationship can bring about positive change by gaining insight and self-awareness, problem solving and developing new strategies for living.
I have a complete trust and faith in person-centred therapy and I am passionate about what I do. I am continually inspired and privileged by my clients bravery, resilience and willingness in allowing me to journey alongside them to healthier and more fulfilled lives.
