About me and my therapy practice
Looking-Glass Counselling is my private practice, established since February 2014. Up on the Great Orme, overlooking Llandudno, away from the stresses and hassles of everyday life, I have a large, comfortable therapy room, a safe, private, calm and relaxed space, a sanctuary, where we'll work together to understand what's really bothering you and what you can do about it. By the end of your FREE 30 minute Introduction Session, you'll be able to make an informed choice whether and how you want to take things forward.
The way I work with clients can best be described as Pluralistic, which is more a philosophy of therapy, rather than a technique or particular school of thought. Pluralism is a person-centred, humanistic, integrative approach to counselling, which holds to certain basic principles and assumptions.
First, you, the client, are the expert on you and your problem and my first job is to seek to understand.
Second, that your aims for the counselling are the priority. Different clients want different things from counselling, a fact ignored by any kind of "one-size-fits-all" approach or school of thought. At the heart of my practice is the desire to help you to realise, articulate and achieve your goals.
Thirdly, there are many different ways of helping you achieve what you want, and we need to work together to figure out which interventions will work best for you.
