As a person-centred counsellor, I am committed to listening to you without judging you or telling you what to do. I offer a confidential relationship where you can openly and freely explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Deciding to have counselling is a way of bringing to yourself an hour a week where you give yourself time and space to explore the things that matter to you. Some people think that spending time and money in this way is selfish. What if you matter enough to give yourself this gift? And what if there could be a positive impact on others too, in your relationships or community?
Working together in this way can help you to make sense of your experiences and feelings, gain new perspectives or help you find new ways of coping with the difficulties that you might be facing and find constructive ways forward. It can also lead to greater confidence, self-esteem and self-compassion and bring contentment, creativity and control to your life.
My experience, both professional and personal, convinces me that much of our suffering can be helped by talking and being listened to in the particular way that person-centred counselling offers.
