About me and my therapy practiceI offer person-centred counselling appointments in Workington, West Cumbria. Most people at some time in their lives experience difficulties or problems and feel they are going through a rough patch. It is often hard to speak to family and friends about these worries and there is a need at these times to speak to someone who will listen, understand and accept us as we are.
The essential qualities which I believe create a safe, supportive and challenging therapeutic environment include a deep acceptance of the person, a desire to understand the person and a commitment to being genuine and honest within the counselling relationship.
Person-centred counselling is rooted in the humanistic philosophy that each person has the ability to move in the direction of a more fulfilling and satisfying way of being and living their lives. It is based on a trust in the inner resources of the client to find their own answers and direction. I work in an integrative way using a holistic approach.
I work with the client to help them more fully understand how they interact with the world around them and how they experience themselves in relation to that world. This leads to greater self awareness and acceptance, thereby empowering the client to make their own choices and take control over their own lives.
