My approach to counselling is that its not 'about me', but you. Here though is a bit about my counselling experience, for you to be reassured about some of the issues I have worked with :
Bereavement / Loss
Work related issues
Coping with long term injury / physical health
Person Centred is not about me giving advice or giving you solutions to problems, we explore your feelings and understand your needs. Its a safe space where you can talk about things you maybe can't or wouldn't talk to a friend or family member about. You can feel valued, cared for and accepted as a person. Counselling can help with many issues that could be holding you back.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) which means I am bound by their code of ethics and work within their good practice guidelines and the BACP ethical framework. The ethical framework can be accessed by visiting www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework
I adhere to a strict duty of confidentiality and anything you disclose during a session will remain in strict confidence. Exceptions to this will be discussed and agreed between us prior to the first session.
As a counsellor working within the BACP ethical framework my work is subject to supervision by a suitably qualified supervisor, to ensure the needs of my clients are met and provide me with support and guidance.
