Background

Humanistic Integrative Counselling is an approach that systematically considers the whole person, mind body and spirit. Working in a humanistic approach provides support so you the client can explore freely your whole life experience rather than singular blocks. Particular attention is paid to combining the past, present and future instead of concentrating on one specific area, problem or issue. The aim of humanistic counselling is to help you the client develop a stronger, healthier sense of self, as well as access and understand your feelings to help gain a sense of meaning in life. Counselling is a talking therapy, and this explains how I work in the counselling room with my clients. My role as a counsellor is to help you through this process, you are the expert to your own life and I can help you find the answers you have within, in a safe trusting and supportive environment. I work in short term and long-term work and will work with you and what you need to make sure the counselling process works for you.
