What is Counselling?

The Person-Centred Counselling approach was developed in the 1940’s by American psychologist Carl Rogers.

Carl Rogers believed that we all have the potential for personal growth and that those who attend counselling should be accepted unconditionally by a counsellor who is genuine, honest and kind.

Making that decision to attend Counselling can be life-changing, and it can take great courage to admit that you need to reach out for help.

People who attend counselling can often be struggling with a range of concerns which may include anxiety, low self-esteem, anger, feeling stuck, abuse, grief (to mention just a few).

As a Counsellor (based in East Kilbride, near Glasgow) I like to compare attending Counselling as the beginning a new journey in life with someone alongside you, who is there to listen and support you, being with you through the highs and lows of your journey, and making progress to a positive ending.

As a Person-Centred Counsellor my role is to support and help you find both perspective and clarity which can lead to positive change in your life; helping you to see how valuable you truly are and that there can be light at the end of a dark tunnel.

A relationship based on trust is vital in the counsellor/client relationship and I will support you, helping you to find a way forward at a pace that is right for you.

Counselling is confidential and no judgements will be made of you regardless of what you wish to talk about during our sessions together.

In our sessions I will always work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework and put you and your feelings first and protect your confidentiality.
