It matters to find a counselling approach that feels comfortable for you.....
and I hope these words can assist you in further informing your choice.
When I first encountered person centred therapy it was 30 years ago as a client following a bereavement.
Its gentle, non- judgemental approach meant I felt safe to be myself and I felt properly heard
As a young parent of two boys, I studied an OU Open degree
with psychology at its core. Going on to study person centred counselling over a decade later
felt like coming home to values and ways of working that felt comfortable.
Person Centred therapy is non-directive
and what the client brings as the expert of their own life is our focus.
~The valuable inner resources and deepest dearest truths of your life experiences is the material with which we work. This very human way of working values your whole self and the realities of your experience ~
Following placements at MIND, Stevenage and at the Letchworth Healthy Living Centre, (HLC)
I continue to work as a qualified counsellor, at HLC.
Like so many people during Covid19, working online has become mine and my clients'
alternative to working face to face. I can report that we are finding it very possible.
I continue to learn through professional development courses counselling practice and supervision, while working gently on my own processes through mindful meditation practice and engagement in personal therapy.
