Person-Centred and Integrative Counselling, Brief Therapy
We all go through tough times. You may be feeling stressed, anxious, sad or irritable. Perhaps you are facing challenges in your current life – or it might be something from the past which is bothering you. Whatever the problem, it’s likely that talking to a professional counsellor will help.
During counselling I offer a special kind of listening space to people. My primary approach is person-centred – based on the belief that everyone has unique potential for growth and self-healing. This includes you!
My role as a counsellor is mainly to understand, value and be honest with my clients. I also sometimes draw on ideas from other counselling approaches, where these would be helpful to the client. I won’t wave a magic wand over your life, but I will help you find your own answers.
Benefits of Counselling
These vary for each person, but often include things like:
• Insight into the cause of problems
• Improved self-acceptance
• Awareness of options for change
• Better decision-making
• Greater confidence
• New ways to manage emotions
• More harmonious relationships
• Enhanced relaxation and wellbeing
My first encounter with counselling was in 1991, as a client. It was so helpful that I eventually decided to train as a counsellor myself.
I have worked as a counsellor in several settings: for a national bereavement charity, for the NHS, for a generic therapy centre, and for a commercial firm providing workplace counselling.
Here are some of the issues I have experience of helping people with:
• Bereavement, loss and change
• Childhood issues
• Family and parenting problems
• Health issues
• Relationships, including separation and divorce
• Suicidal feelings
• Work problems
• Women’s issues.
