I work within a Humanistic, person-centred approach. This means the client is the centre of the work and I am there by their side to explore whatever is uppermost for them. However, I also incorporate other theoretical models whenever appropriate.
Some other theories I call upon are:
I strongly believe that the client is the expert on themselves and simply needs the right environment and a relationship of trust to develop to the best of their ability. I see the client as an individual and not as a 'case' to be fitted to a particular theory.
I am happy to undertake both short term counselling and longer open-ended therapy.
I often accommodate sessions at short notice as I work daytimes, evenings and Saturday mornings.
There is a free car park opposite the house. I am willing to make home visits as wheelchair access may be difficult.
For a one hour session my fee is £60 for individuals and £70 for couples, occasionally negotiable.
