Person-centred therapy is one of the humanistic approaches developed by Psychologist Carl Rogers in the 1940s. It is a client-based form of therapy, which means that the client has full control of the therapeutic process.

Rogers believed that every person, when given the right conditions, can reach their full potential and become their true self. Person-centred therapy steers away from the idea that human beings are flawed and require treatment for their problematic behaviours. Instead, it provides clients with the tools and resources they need to understand themselves and what they need to achieve positive change in their lives.

Our work together

Empathy and compassion are the foundation of our work together. I provide a safe space to talk, and I will support you to become more self-aware, accepting of yourself and able to trust your own inner voice. The sessions are non-directive, you can share anything that you want to in our sessions. I do not teach you the model of therapy or give you homework. I will offer support and help you to explore your feelings, thoughts, beliefs, behaviour, and worldview.

You are the expert on yourself, as no-one else knows exactly what it’s like to be you. I will help you to realise what resources and support are available to you so that you can work through your own issues, build your self-confidence, and appreciate that you always have options.

Person-centred therapy is an 'holistic' approach; it considers the whole person, addressing emotional, cognitive, and behavioural aspects, contributing to a more comprehensive understanding of yourself.

What you can expect in our sessions

Genuineness and congruence. I will be real with you! I will be open and honest about my thoughts and feelings of how I experience your world.

Unconditional Positive Regard. I will completely accept, value and supports you, taking your feelings and emotions seriously and will validate your feelings. I will separate you from your behaviour with a non-judgemental attitude.

Empathy. I will use empathetic understanding to see the world through your eyes and see and feel your feelings as you feel them. I will put myself ‘in your shoes’.

Integrative Therapy

The integrative psychotherapy model combines different styles of counselling and recognises that a single approach does not fit all situations.

I am trained in different counselling and psychological theories and may incorporate aspects of other therapeutic approaches. This model is flexible and adaptable and tailored to your individual needs, rather than expecting you to fit to one specific type of therapy.

The person-centred principles always underpin our sessions, the focus is on you and the aim is to help you reach your full potential.
