Our counsellors all have the ‘Person Centred Approach’ at the heart of their work.
Person-Centred Counselling emerged from humanism and starts from the premise that we all have the ability to move towards a more fulfilling and satisfying way of being and living our lives.
In the Person-Centred Approach the counsellor trusts the client to find their own answers and direction. The counsellor is a fellow traveller on the client’s journey, helping the client to understand how they interact with the world and helping them to develop a greater sense of self-awareness in a (physically and psychologically) safe environment.
The essential qualities needed to create this environment are empathy, acceptance and congruence. These core conditions, are at the heart of the Person Centred Approach.
