About counselling

 

The foundation of my practice is working from a Person-centred approach which is one of the Humanistic modalities.

Person-centred counselling was founded by Carl Roger, who believed with the right conditions a person can reach their full potential and become their true self. This he referred to as self-actualisation.

Other humanistic therapies include:

Existential therapy focusing on the anxieties that occur due to certain conditions inherent in life, such as death, meaninglessness, freedom, and responsibility and isolation.

Gestalt which focuses on the immediate here and now and how it can be explored.

Transactional analysis based on the theory that each individual has three ego states, the parent, adult and child. The therapeutic process analyses how we are communicating with others.

For a more detailed explanation of each counselling model please visit the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy at www.bacp.co.uk.

Therapy sessions are client-led, putting you at the centre of the process. We will work together to explore the issues you bring to the process, with a view to bring about positive change. I will not tell you what to do, or fix you, but respect your autonomy.

Working integratively with a person-centred approach at the heart of my practice we can explore other modalities which may be beneficial for your therapeutic journey.

Individual Therapy 

Working on a one-to-one basis face to face, a safe, non-judgemental space is provided for you to explore your own thoughts, feelings, experiences, and behaviours. We will work together to help you make informed decisions, become more self-aware and bring about positive change.

Couples Therapy 

If you are experiencing difficulties within your relationship due to life or work circumstances, or find that commitments such as family, children or finances are impacting how you interact together, couples counselling can help resolve these issues by providing a safe equal space to openly explore what you want from your relationship without judgement.
