Person Centred Counselling

I am primarily a Person-Centred therapist. Counselling gives the opportunity and time to talk through whatever is troubling you without having to worry about being judged or receiving unwanted advice. One-to-one sessions are not only designed to help you work through problems but also to build up your mental resilience and your ability to cope.

To get the best from counselling, sessions are usually on a weekly basis, in a safe, supportive and relaxed atmosphere where you can explore any feelings and difficulties you may be experiencing.

You are in the driving seat and are free to talk about anything that you feel is important to you at the time. We work at a pace you feel comfortable with and have an informal review of aims and progress every 6 sessions.

Often people choose a professional counsellor as it allows an opportunity to talk through difficulties with someone who is not emotionally close. In addition to gaining insight into your own world, you may also get a better understanding of why other people say and act in the way they do.

Tailor made therapy for you

An aim of counselling therapy is to get a full understanding of your present position. While Person-Centred counselling is not about reducing a client's situation to a list of problems, you may find it useful to know that counselling can be beneficial over a range of issues such as:

  • Improving self-esteem

  • Dealing with anxiety

  • Building confidence

  • Men's issues

  • Mental health

  • Managing depression

  • Guilt

  • Emotional well being

  • Counselling for men

  • Life changes

  • Loss

  • Sexuality

  • Better understanding of self

  • Embarrassment

  • Shame

  • Loneliness

  • Relationships

  • Relationship counselling

  • Work-life

  • Stress

  • Overcoming stage fright

  • Homelife

  • Trauma

  • Social isolation

  • Negative thoughts

  • Reducing self-imposed limitations to enable a more meaningful life

  • Loss of identity

Of course, the way we are feeling may not fit neatly into one category. Whatever the reason you may consider counselling, Person-Centred therapy is about finding the right way forward for you - tailored to your unique needs and situation.
