I work entirely within the person-centred approach as a supervisor, a therapist and as a tutor on the MSc / PGDip in Person-Centred Counselling at the University of Aberdeen. I aim to create and be part of a relationship based on respect, openness and safety.
My multi-layered work allows me to be in a constant state of learning and openness to experience in a truly person-centred way. I find that my own learning sits so well alongside that of my supervisees; being a part of a collaborative relationship that is based on the Rogerian core conditions and a sense of equality and respect.
I'm very comfortable exploring the theory of the person-centred approach in relation to our counselling work and indeed find it helps to scaffold our experiencing on a firm basis of theoretical and experiential knowledge.
My supervision is person-centred in that it will focus on you in relationship with your clients. Our work will be in deepening your self-awareness, understanding and practice in relation to your clients as it is through this relationship that therapeutic change will take place.
Through exploring your work in a safe, held space, we will collaborate to create that same space for your clients.
