People seek counselling for a variety of different reasons
Perhaps you are feeling stuck? Feeling life is a mess? Struggling to cope? Experiencing relationship difficulties? Or maybe you just need someone to talk to?
Counselling will provide you with an opportunity to explore your experiences, emotions and problems in a safe and confidential space.
There are a number of different theoretical approaches to counselling. My way of working is person-centred, which is a humanistic approach founded by the psychologist Carl Rogers. As a person-centred therapist, I aim to work alongside you and at your pace, with empathy and without judgement.
Research continues to suggest that it is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client that determines the effectiveness of therapy. I view therapy as a collaboration; a relationship, so the creation of a trusting and empathic alliance with my clients is at the heart of my work. It's important to find a counsellor who feels right for you, so don't be afraid to look around and do some research. Further information regarding counselling approaches can be found here.
