Person Centred Counsellor, BSc, PhD, MBACP (Accred.)
Looking for a counsellor who can solve all your problems and guarantee a hassle-free future, and the freedom to eat mainly cake and not get fat, well, sadly, you have come to the wrong place.
However, if you are looking for a therapist with a quirky sense of humour and an optimistic perspective, in the Warwickshire area, then look no further. I am a person-centred counsellor, a vocation which I found while trying to ‘find’ myself. Basically, I became a counsellor in the first place because something was messing with my inner calm and I also thought that I would make an interesting case study!
In person centred counselling therapeutic change occurs organically through understanding and accepting oneself as a human being, in being both unique and special while, also, at the same time, being just like everyone else. The therapeutic relationship acts like a catalyst for this process, the process of realisation, that can happen spontaneously but slowly overtime, is accelerated by counselling. This makes person centred counselling an appropriate therapeutic choice for most clients.
Initially, all I am offering is a warm, safe, private and confidential space, free from judgement, where we will explore your experiences and your understanding of them. Then, I will challenge you, frequently, by asking things like, ‘and how did that make you feel’. I do this because failing to listen to how we feel creates emotional tension. We are commonly taught not to listen to our ‘gut instinct’, this is just one example of a simple fundamental shift we can work on together to create long lasting therapeutic change.
I love the work I do. Up until 2019 I have worked exclusively with clients for a local charity, gaining much experience, which I would be happy to discuss privately. Henceforth, I am offering my counselling services to the general population, as well. I qualified in 2015 as a person-centred counsellor and I am an accredited registered member of the British association of counsellors and psychotherapists (BACP). On their website you will find more information about person-centred counselling along with their ethical framework which, as an accredited registered member, I adhere to.
Therapy maybe long or short term, with regular reviews to make sure your needs are being met. My counselling sessions last one therapeutic hour (about 50 minutes!)
