My personal philosophy of counselling begins with a willingness to enter into an individual’s experience with an authentic listening heart that desires to help individuals move and grow through their emotional pain and life difficulties, so that they can live as healthy and whole individuals.
The counselling experience is an opportunity of self-exploration of thoughts and feelings, and patterns of behaviour; increasing self-awareness and self-understanding. I believe that we all have innate strengths, courage, and resilience that will support you in your growth and healing.
Together, we can have a conversation in a safe and supportive environment where we can begin to build a strong therapeutic relationship, which is key in the process of healing. I believe in holistic healing that embraces the whole self – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. I work from a compassionate, collaborative, and strengths-based approach, where I facilitate the process of empathetic listening, discerning insight and the application of practical strategies, supporting you to work towards your set goals and objectives, in order to achieve your desired outcome.
Overall, my philosophy as a therapist is that each individual brings their own uniqueness, where you are respected, worthy of unconditional acceptance, regardless of your personal circumstances or struggles.
I welcome you to provide yourself this time to move through and transform your difficulties and challenges into personal growth, resilience and empowerment.
