“Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.” Sigmund Freud
Trying to talk about things that are private, upsetting or difficult can be daunting and feel risky. Yet I know from personal experience how transformative it can be to talk at these times.
I draw from a variety of approaches that allows me to tailor counselling to each person’s unique needs.
My approach acknowledges the importance of creating a respectful, empathic and trusting relationship with clients.
In this section of my website I will offer some deeper thoughts and reflections on issues around counselling. However, there are rarely simple or ‘quick fix’ solutions to life’s challenges so I will listen carefully to each individual coming to counselling to make sure I engage deeply with their particular feelings and outlooks.
