My Approach

I take an interested humanistic approach to therapy, that everyone deserves unconditional positive regard, empathy and compassion and to learn how to become compassionate towards themselves. The therapy space will be safe and I believe that everyone has the resources and resilience to move towards change.
Relationship building is the foundation of my counselling approach, I believe that exceptional work and progress is achieved when a relationship gains trust and confidence. The client needs to trust me and I need to trust the client, the whole process is always a two way street. Counselling relationship is built on Unconditional Positive Regard, Empathy and Congruence (Realness), once these are in place and felt; therapy happens. I strive to create a positive and safe place for the client to share their issues/problems and never think I know more about you than you do.
