How I Work

The Person Centred Approach

I work in a person-centred way which means that you are at the centre of our work together and you have the internal resources you need for growth. I offer a safe, empathic, non-judgemental and transparent environment for you to explore issues that are important to you.

The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) describe person-centred therapy as follows: "Devised by Carl Rogers and also called "Client-Centred" or "Rogerian"  counselling, this is based on the assumption  that  a client  seeking help in the resolution of a problem they are  experiencing, can enter into a relationship with a counsellor  who is sufficiently accepting and permissive to allow the client to freely express any emotions and feelings. This will enable the client to come to terms with negative feelings, which may have caused emotional problems, and develop inner resources. The objective is for the client to become able to see himself as a person, with the power and freedom to change, rather than as an object."

It is important to find the right counsellor for you where you are able to build a trusting and safe relationship, so that you can feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings in the sessions. Therefore, I offer a complementary initial half hour session to discuss how we might work together, what you may want to work on and answer any questions you may have. We can then decide whether I am the right counsellor for you and there is no obligation to return.

Should you decide you want to work with me, then subsequent sessions are typically 50 minutes in duration on a weekly basis. It is impossible to know how many sessions you may want/need as everyone is different and we can review this on an ongoing basis. You are not obliged to sign up for a set number of sessions; some clients decide after a couple of sessions they are not ready yet and others may continue therapy for months and sometimes years, it's entirely up to you.

We will also agree a therapeutic contract for working together.

I hold professional Indemnity Insurance and have regular clinical supervision.
