Sally Hughes MBCAP
I believe that the experience of being truly listened to, and accepted, can be deeply nourishing and this is at the heart of my work.
Choosing the right counsellor can be quite difficult when you have much on your mind already but feeling comfortable and safe with your counsellor is the most important aspect for it to be of help to you. Let this be your gift to yourself. It is a privilege for me to offer it to you.
I am a member of BACP and trained to offer integrative counselling (using more than one approach) in person centred and psychodynamic approaches. Put very simply, person centred counselling focusses on you mainly in the present and psychodynamic counselling looks into the past making connections with how you feel and manage today.
Whatever the approach, counselling can be a journey of self discovery. It is not for giving answers but for helping to find them and becoming empowered to make change where it's needed.
"Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out." Vaclav Havel
