Madeleine James MBACP Dip Counselling
I am a experienced person-centred counsellor working for the past 10 years. I have worked on a one to one with adults children and young people. I also work with couples and families. I have worked in hospices, children's centres and in private practice. I have experience working on phone lines supporting people who feel life isn't worth living.
Being a person-centred counsellor I believe that each individual has the resources for growth and to become whole when offered a non-judgement, confidential empathic and congruent environment.
Through the counselling process a relationship of trust will develop with client and counsellor and the client can experience through verbalisation an understanding of their issues and self. The counselling process is very powerful and very rewarding.

I always make sure I take each individuals needs into consideration and sometimes when appropriate I use Psychodynamic and CBT methods. I also use creative methods especially when working with children and young people.
I feel that these methods with person-centred counselling work well together as most clients will explore past, present and then future when they are ready to move forward.
I strongly believe in the counselling process and have experienced many clients finding their way in life.
