The aim of counselling is to provide you, the client, with a confidential opportunity to explore personal and relational issues in safety. My role is to help you through this process without judgement or advising you on what to do. I may on occasions give information or offer suggestions.
During counselling, we may set goals, agreed between the client and the therapist. The client agrees to work towards the agreed goals. If at any time I feel I can no longer help you, I will inform you, or offer to refer you to someone who can.
Working as an integrative Therapist, I work form a Person-Centred base, whilst incorporating elements of Psychodynamic and CBT approaches when appropriate. A fuller appreciation of the Counselling Process will emerge as therapy progresses.
