how I work

Person-Centred Counselling

Person-Centred Counselling is a relational therapy, whose underlying theory respects each individual as a person of unique and equal value. Carl Rogers, the founder of Person-Centred Counselling believed that given the right conditions, each person has the potential within themselves to grow and develop and to know what hurts and what heals.

My aim in working with you is to create an environment in which you feel safe enough to explore your concerns. Therefore, I don't tell you what to do, nor do I analyse you, or lead the therapy in a certain direction. My expertise lies in being genuine in my relationship with you and facilitating you in expressing your thoughts, feelings and experiences without judgment.

In empathising with how you feel and experience things, and in communicating that to you, you can gain further insight and deepen your understanding of your self and the issues troubling you.

The Benefits of Counselling

Counselling can help by providing emotional support, by strengthening the tools for living that you already possess, as well as identify changes that you may wish to make in your behavior or in life. It can also lead to a raised self-esteem, a more positive outlook on life, improved relationships, a sense of inner fulfillment, greater self-acceptance and being more of the person you want to be.

I work with a wide range of issues, such as: abuse (physical, sexual, emotional, mental, financial), anger, anxiety, bereavement/loss, bullying, child related issues, depression, divorce/separation, domestic violence, identity issues, lack of direction/purpose, rape, relationship issues, self-harm, sexual abuse, stress, suicidal thoughts, trauma.

As with all counselling approaches, it may not be suitable for everyone. In that instance I would do my best to refer you to another service.
