About Me

Why am I a Person-centred counsellor?

My love of the Person-centred approach is its total flexibility.   At the beginning of each journey with a new client, I don’t know where our path will take us.  Every client brings individual requirements, a different story and a unique way of being.  

You may come with goals you want to achieve and we can work towards them or you may come with feelings you don’t understand.  We can gently brush away the surface layers and discover what lays beneath.  There may be a pattern of behaviour that you don’t like in yourself  or you may be wanting to think about your relationship to someone in your life.  It may be may be time to confront past trauma or you may want to work on your self-esteem.

The work is wide-ranging and the characters and personalities of clients is equally diverse, resulting in an unrepeatable journey with each client.

experience

Having qualified in 2019, I continued my placements in a women’s centre and a hospice care centre, working with the bereaved.  My first paid counselling role was in a secondary school working with both students and staff.  I now work exclusively in private practice.

Creativity

We all react in different ways as we work through our counselling.  Some people like to sit still and talk, others explain things with their hands.  There are individuals who fidget to help them think and others who like to write things down or paint or draw to help them explain how they feel or use objects to represent different aspects of the conversation.  There is no right or wrong way to use the creative materials available during counselling but if this is something that appeals to you please explore.

You may find the answer to your question here.  If there is anything else you need to know just contact me.  I welcome comments and queries.
