A Happier, Healthier You

Feeling a bit down lately and nothing seems to lift your spirits? 

Person centred counselling is a type of talking therapy that centres on the client’s emotional responses to the issues that affect them.


Person Centred Counselling offers the client the opportunity to discuss a variety of issues with a skilled practitioner who will facilitate the client to explore and reflect on their emotions, responses and actions to events in their life.

Person centred counselling is built on the respect for the client’s autonomy in finding solutions to their issues and in their authority on their own experiences. We will look at what matters to you, how you want to be able to resolve issues, look at what motivates you and help you find the ways and the confidence to achieve your goals.


The role of a person centred counsellor is to create a non-judgemental space that facilitates the growth of the client, through reflection and self-discovery.  The counsellor’s role is to shine a light on where there is an incongruence between beliefs and actions that cause the distress that clients feel.  A person-centred therapist will not seek to lead the sessions so it will be up to the client to be willing to engage with their emotions and feelings as the sessions will not be structured by the counsellor directing the work. 

What is person centred counselling?

Counselling is a form of therapy which can help individuals understand and work through painful and seemingly overwhelming issues; it can help you discover new directions and positive ways of enriching your life.  As a person centred counsellor I offer a safe and confidential space where personal and private feelings can be explored, where issues can be shared without the worry of being judged.  Counselling allows time to identify the problem and to look at alternative options with the goal of empowering you to make necessary changes.

Is counselling right for me?

Person centred counselling works well with people who are feeling depressed, anxious or bereaved.  As the work is non-directive it works well with people who are able to express themselves, have an urge to explore their own emotions and are willing to accept the support to understand and process their thoughts as they are supported to understand the way they see the world.

Person-centred counselling deals with emotions, so if you are not comfortable or willing to explore your emotional responses to your issues then this process will not benefit you.  Clients will need to be open and honest about their actions and responses to events and be willing to discuss what has informed these decisions.


You will also need to be able to accept challenge on why you act in certain ways and be willing to change as a person. If you are unable to do this then you will gain few benefits from this approach and the sessions.
