About My Counselling Approach
My counselling approach is Humanistic, my aim is to work non-judgmentally and respectfully with clients, to build a trusting relationship, and by exploring issues together, to try and find a better way forward.
Sometimes when people feel in crisis, or when problems are feeling too much to cope with, it can be helpful to talk through concerns therapeutically, and with somebody who is impartial so as to explore meanings, choices and a way forward.
Some examples of difficulties might be the stresses and strains of work/life balance, coming to terms with loss or abuse, the desire to change a behaviour such as binge eating or agrophobia, feeling stuck with a relationship, feeling depressed, dealing with trauma or low self-esteem.
Using a combination of approaches such as Person Centred, Gestalt, Existential CBT and Mindfulness, I integrate these models to suit the individual needs of my clients.
