Further information

Humanistic Counselling at Finding You Bishops Stortford East Herts.

Some view the need for counselling as a sign of weakness. This could not be further from the truth. Counselling is NOT a sign of weakness.  Counselling takes a lot of  strength and courage and involves a lot of  hard work.

Humanistic Counselling is a supportive form of therapy.  Humanistic therapists create a safe space  in which you are invited to share, process and evaluate your concerns.

Humanistic Counselling is based on the philosophy that individuals are full of potential for growth. Your therapist will be empathic, understanding, supportive and non-judgemental.

Humanistic counsellors  see human beings as having an innate tendency to develop towards their full potential.

Life events, however, can take their toll and can affect our mental well being, our health and all aspects of our lives. Life events, relationships, trying to please, trying to fit in all have an impact on us and as a result sometimes we lose sight of who "we really are" and "what we really want". This in-turn can have an impact on our physical and mental well being. We may become unwell, depressed, anxious, stressed etc.

At Finding You, in Bishops Stortford our aim is to create a safe, confidential space, within which you can process your thoughts, feelings and the life events that have had an impact on you and taken their toll.

The counselling process will help you to gain clarity, and will support you whilst you explore choices, options and decisions that you may need to make to get yourself back on track. By doing so you may begin to experience and accept more of who you are as a person, and this in-turn allows you to reconnect with your own values and sense of self-worth. This reconnection with your inner resources enables you to find your own way to move forward.

"At Finding You our aim is to understand the client's experience from the client's point of view, and to positively value the client as a person in all aspects of their humanity, while aiming to be open and genuine as another human being" Karen founder of Finding You.

The final judge of whether a counsellor is right for you can only be yourself and you must trust your own instincts.
