ADULTS

"I have become stronger, more confident."

Female, 22

COUNSELLING APPROACH

My counselling method is based on the Person-Centred Therapy view that everyone has the capacity for personal growth, change and self-actualisation, given the right therapeutic conditions. These core conditions, or values inform my practice: unconditional acceptance, empathy and genuineness.  Rather than hiding behind the façade of expert and directing the therapy, my aim is to enable clients to find their own inner resources for resolving personal problems. This therapeutic space is proven to help the client to become self-healing, self-accepting and resilient. Clients will also experience being more empowered therefore better able to manage life challenges, creating a more fulfilling life.

I also incorporate Mindfulness and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) tools which have successfully helped individuals to manage negative thoughts, compulsive self-criticism, low mood/depression and anxiety.
