It can be difficult to take that first step of finding help, especially if you are finding it hard to pinpoint what is wrong. People around us often push us towards decisions that might not be right for us and might not be ours. I seek to give someone the space and time to explore what is happening, with an honest, open response that enables them to think about their own wants and needs and to have autonomy over their decisions.
Some research has shown that the relationship between client and counsellor is more important than the approach the counsellor uses. I strive to create a non-judgemental and empathic space in order to step towards enabling a person to have independence over their own world and choices.
I mainly work using the Person Centred Approach, however I also work Integratively and am open to looking at what works best for you as a client.
The Person Centred Approach sees every individual as having the internal resources they need for growth, and helps people to work at their own pace. I aim to create a safe, supportive and respectful space for you to look at your life and think about how you want to move forward.
I provide long term or short term sessions and I am also able to work with you over the phone or using Skype. Sessions last for 50 minutes.
