Helen Donnison BSc (Hons) PGDip MBACP Helen D Counselling and Psychotherapy
To listen seems like such a simple thing to do, but how often do we share our feelings with well-intentioned friends and family, only to be met with their feelings and advice on the matter, when all we really want is to be able to work things out for ourselves?
I believe that by offering to truly listen to a client, without judgement, they can start to explore their world and begin to gain a better understanding of that world and their part in it. This understanding can then lead to any number of possibilities depending on what that client feels is right for them.
