Sometimes as counsellors, we talk our own language, filled with counselling jargon, technical terms and abbreviations. I try to avoid this as I feel it creates confusion and misunderstanding. I prefer to be real, open, honest, genuine and understandable when I am with my clients.
I aim to offer to the time and a safe space to be able to concentrate on you. Every person who comes to me is completely unique, as it their story and perspective. The most significant part of the therapeutic process is developing the relationship between the client and counsellor and working together you can identify ways to improve your well-being. I can provide you with individually tailored tools and technique's to work through you difficulties as we go along. My biggest belief is that people have an innate tenancy to be able to self actualize and reach their full potential themselves but with support and guidance, this will go on to facilitate personal growth and positive change.
