The Humanistic Approach:
Humanistic Counselling emphasises the need for empathy. It's aim is to assist the client to develop a stronger, healthier sense of self. As well as uncovering and understanding their feelings to help them gain a sense of meaning to their world.
Emma truly believes that despite the various difficulties we may experience in life, every individual has the natural ability to realise their potential. It is also important for her to have an equal relationship with her clients that Humanistic theory promotes.
