Way of working: My training was in Gestalt, Psychosynthesis and Person Centred which are Humanistic approaches to counselling. I integrate each approach from a Person Centred base. As a Humanistic Counsellor I work in a way that aims builds trust and genuiness within the therapeutic relationship. Without a solid trusting and safe working relationship then therapeutic change cannot take place. I offer the core conditions of congruence, empathy and unconditional positive regard. Working in a non-judgemental way, I believe that each person has the ability to reach their own full potential and through counselling I aim to foster the right environment to help your development.:
I have experience as a tutor, teaching level 2 and 3 skills on CPCAB recognised counselling courses. I teach students how to develop their skills in listening and understanding clients, and most importantly, how to build a trusting, safe counselling relationship. I encourage learners to develop their knowledge of counselling theory through its application in practice. What do I mean by theory? Well for me, it is about understanding how people are in their world, for example: Do you behave in ways that please others and not yourself (internal & external locus of evaluation) or do you do things because other people have set conditions “I will only love you if………” (Conditions of worth) do you lack motivation? Few goals, dreams or aspirations (self-actualisation tendency)? How do you see yourself in the world? Who do you want to be? Who you are? (Self-worth) this is just a small piece of theory taken from a person centred approach to counselling inspired by its founding father, Carl Rogers. Counselling Theory in practice can help to enhance the relationship between not only counsellor and client but between student and tutor. I believe that it is not just a way of working but who I am, therefore I aspire to the embodiment of the approach. I am a person who has a genuine, empathic and non-judgmental personality wanting to offer my support and help to those who need it.
Research interest: I continue each year with CPD (Continuous Professional Development), by enrolling on counselling related workshops throughout the year which assists me with my knowledge. I experience a continuous learning experience and remain open to different approaches, styles and theories in counselling. Through this I aim to provide the best service I can as a counsellor.
