As described by the BACP, ‘Counselling provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk to a trained professional about your issues and concerns. Your therapist will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and of others.’
A counsellor will not give you their opinions or advice or prescribe medication. They will help you find your own solutions – whether that’s making effective changes in your life or finding ways of coping with your problems.
Many clients, with no prior knowledge of counselling, believe that the counsellor will sort their problems out for them. As a person-centred counsellor, I will help you to explore your own issues, feelings, beliefs, behaviour, and worldview, so you can become more self-aware and achieve greater independence.
I will help you to realise what resources and support are available to you that you can use to work through your own issues, build your self-confidence and appreciate that you always have options. I will treat you as the expert on yourself, as no-one else knows exactly what it’s like to be you.
I will provide a safe, confidential space for you to share your thoughts and concerns and I can assure you that our sessions will be non-judgemental, no matter what you bring to the session. This helps build a trustworthy relationship in which you can feel free and supported to disclose whatever is troubling you.
Maybe for the first time, you will feel listened too and understood. Eventually it will lead you to discover your own abilities and autonomy, so that you can cope with current and future problems.
“We think we listen, but very rarely do we listen with real understanding, true empathy. Yet listening, of this very special kind, is one of the most potent forces of change that I know” – Carl Rogers
