MY COUNSELLING PRACTICE
You may have found your way here because you are maybe going through difficult personal or relationship issues. You may be struggling to cope with some major trauma or life change. You may be experiencing distressing anxious feelings about something in your life. You may be feeling vulnerable and struggling to feel worthy or confident.
We may not always be how we would wish to be, or to achieve what we want for ourselves or in our relationships.. We may live our lives how we think we have to for others to love us or like us. We can feel vulnerability when our lives are restricted in this way. All sorts of troubles and problems may develop for us personally and in our relationships because we have lost a sense of who we really are.
THE UNIQUENESS OF EACH OF US
The person-centred approach provides the basis for my counselling work. The approach has been fundamental inenabling me to change and move my own life in a positive and rewarding direction.
The central value of the person-centred approach is the belief that we are all motivated by an innate tendency to become the unique person we can be, and to achieve all we can, within the circumstances of our lives.
We have immense potential and resources within us to shape our lives and our relationships in a positive and fulfilling way though we may not always be able to release the resources within us to do this that easily.
In relationships where a person is genuine accepted and understood deeply they are more likely to feel accepting and understanding of themselves and connect more with their own resources. In this way their ability to shape and change their lives for the better can be released.
I fully involve myself in the troubles and problems my client is are facing, and work with them to find ways to make their lives better. This will involve me being with all their experiences, their thoughts, beliefs, emotions and in their physical bodily feelings.
I wont tell my client what to do because I believe that they know at heart what is best for them though will work actively and offer what I experience I do have as a counsellor to help them identify and open up to what is best for them.
I have been a counsellor for more than 25 years working with individuals, couples and groups. I have worked with a wide range of issues and problems including:
