Jennifer Farnon, Registered Member MBACP (Accred)
I work within the Humanistic framework and the core of my approach is Person Centred. This means that I will listen to you in an active, empathic, non-judgemental and congruent way so that we can develop a therapeutic alliance to address and resolve any difficulties you may be experiencing. My training at the University of East London included CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and the Integrative Process Model (which referenced a Solution Focussed approach), and, working collaboratively, I may refer to these modalities and integrate aspects of them.
I am cognisant of early life experiences, family dynamics and parental relationships and recognise that these may be integral to your narrative. Nevertheless, the Humanistic, Person-Centred theory that the client is the best expert of themselves and that with empathy and the therapeutic alliance this expertise can be revealed and applied, remains the basis of my integrative approach.
I receive clinical supervision for all my counselling work which is implemented with reference to, and in accordance with, the BACP Ethical Framework.
