How I work

My counselling approach

My counselling approach is Person-Centred. My skills lie in being able to empathise, listen without judgement and accept you for who you are. I do not offer directions, opinions, or advice. I will not tell you what to do or how to live your life, however, I will listen. I offer you help with determining the right way forward for you.
I do not know how it is to be you, nevertheless, I will do my best to try and understand, to see things from your perspective and to get a sense of how life feels for you. I consider that inside us, we all have the capacity to know what is in our best interest and just at this moment in time, you may just need some support to help find it. This is where counselling can help you.

What to expect

In our first session, we will explore what it is that you want from counselling, what your expectations are, if any, and what I can offer you. We will begin to build a ‘therapeutic’ relationship. I believe that one of the key elements of successful counselling is the ‘relationship’ between the client and the counsellor. Occasionally people do not automatically ‘click’, so if I am not the right counsellor for you, or my style of counselling is not what you want, then, you can walk away. I will always be honest with you and I hope our relationship will grow in to one of mutual trust and understanding, key elements in a therapeutic relationship.
Confidentiality, safeguarding, and trust are important in counselling. At the initial appointment I will explain how these apply in my counselling practice, and I will answer any questions you may have about counselling with me.
