How I Approach Counselling and Psychotherapy

My approach is non-directive: clients and I work collaboratively on issues of difficulty.

I provide a safe space where clients can talk about their difficulties giving importance to listening and understanding. Attending counselling for the first time can bring up some anxiety, this is quite normal.
