Wellview Counselling - Antonia Hutchinson MBACP Dip. Couns.
My primary approach is person-centred, which rests on the belief that you, and not the counsellor, are the expert about what you are experiencing. However, I am also happy to integrate other approaches, such as CBT exercises, into our work together, if and when we feel they would be appropriate and helpful. Every client is unique, and therefore every approach needs to be tailored to their individual needs.
Sessions are held in my dedicated counselling garden room, which is small but calm and peaceful. I am based in Ashford, Kent.
I would recommend an initial consultation session, in order to clarify your expectations and goals and to see if you feel that the process is for you. The relationship between a client and a counsellor is absolutely key to the success of therapy, so it’s very important that you feel comfortable with the idea of working with me before you commit to any further sessions. At this first session, we will discuss what you want to address and what has brought you to counselling, and we will work out a plan for how to proceed.
Following this appointment, if you feel you would like to continue counselling, regular sessions can be arranged.
