There are many different types of therapy and selecting the one that is right for you can feel confusing. The type of counselling I practice is known as Person-Centred - an approach founded by Dr. Carl Rogers in the 1950s which belongs to the Humanistic school of therapy. The core of my approach is my belief that every client must be respected as a unique individual, shaped by their own personal experiences and has the ability to change.
I believe that the quality of the relationship between client and therapist is of utmost importance and can be the basis for permanent therapeutic change and growth. Put simply, if we make a good team you should end up feeling more in control of your life and able to make positive changes. I am not an expert on your feelings - only you can know how it feels to be you, but talking to someone outside of the situation who accepts you for who you are can often help you to see things more clearly.
I aim to offer you a safe space where you can be your real self; express your real thoughts, feelings and look at what you would like to change. I believe that this can happen and will be right beside you as you travel.
