About me and my therapy practice

COUNSELLING APPROACH

Relationship building is the foundation of my counselling approach, I believe that exceptional work and progress is achieved when a relationship gains trust and confidence. The client needs to trust me and I need to trust the client, the whole process is always a two way street. Counselling relationship is built on Unconditional Positive Regard, Empathy and Congruence (Realness), once these are in place and felt; therapy happens. I strive to create a positive and safe place for the client to share their issues/problems and never think I know more about you than you do.

My Counselling approach is centred around the client, I am trained in Person- centred Counselling, Transactional analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Counselling does not need to be narrow or singular I believe that it can be tailored to the needs and wants of the client. My approach can either work with your here and now issues or go deeper into unresolved childhood situations which need working through.

I sincerely believe that people have the courageousness to move forward in a way that is meaningful to them in therapy. I value connection, and that all people should be treated with the utmost respect and as a human being with human rights in therapy space.

The first Counselling session will be to find out what your expectations are and to give you space to talk through some of the issues you will bring, we will be able to identify whether Counselling is needed. The first session is important, relationship building starts from the first point of contact it is really important that you feel comfortable and safe working with me.
