What is Counselling?

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

He believed that we all have the potential for growth if the right conditions are met, and that those who attend counselling should be treated with empathy and be accepted unconditionally by a counsellor who is genuine, honest and kind.

Our mental health can be impacted by many things that prevent personal growth and counselling can often be sought when we are at our lowest ebb, and it can take great courage to admit that you have feelings of self-doubt, anxiety, depression or low self-esteem.

In our counselling relationship we can explore your worries and concerns and I will work with you in a safe and confidential space.

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

A relationship based on trust is vital in the counsellor/client relationship and my aim will be to help you to find a way forward in your life and work 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.
