Robert Senior. Dip.couns, Reg.MBCAP.
Acknowledging the need for help and then asking for help requires courage. I hope that I respond to any request for help with calm, warmth and empathy, recognising the uniqueness of each individual and their experiences.
For me the quality of the relationship between client and counsellor is the major factor in effective therapy. It is also the primary focus of the Person-Centred form of counselling in which I work.
My approach is based upon respect, understanding and confidentiality which combine to create an environment that encourages an individual to talk safely through any difficulties that are causing concern, whiIe empowering him or her to challenge these difficulties and strive for a life free of them.
I work with clients of 16+ years old.
I am a Registered Member of the BACP, which means that as a counsellor. I abide by the Code of Ethics upheld by the BACP.
I have a background in Fine Art. I have also worked for many years with the homeless; adults suffering from schizophrenia and depression; young people with special needs; Gypsy and Traveller families.
