What is Personal Counselling? 

person centred counsellor at workMost people at some time in their lives experience difficulties or problems and feel they are going through a rough patch.

Person Centred Counselling

Person Centred Counselling is rooted in the humanistic philosophy that each person has the ability to move in the direction of a more fulfilling and satisfying way of being and living their lives. It is based on a trust in the inner resources of the client to find their own answers and direction.

This leads to greater self-awareness and acceptance, thus empowering the client to make their own choices and take control over their own lives. It is the client who knows what hurts and has the capacity within the safety of a therapeutic relationship to begin a healing process.

The essential qualities which I believe create a safe, supportive and challenging therapeutic environment include:

These qualities offered consistently and professionally are the central characteristics of the Person Centred Approach.
