My Approach to Counselling

Humanistic Counsellor in the Guildford, Burpham  area I use core psychological models in my work with clients, from the Humanistic school of practice: Person-Centered, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis. I also use CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Solution-Focussed Therapy in my work.

Humanistic counselling means that it focuses on the positive side of being human. It holds faith that given the right sort of support you are capable of reaching your potential, whatever that may be. I believe that our working partnership is most important in helping you work through what's brought you to counselling.

I work to 'best practice', these values are important to me:

• Having a network of like-minded counsellors for referral
• Keeping my skills up to date with regular training
• For my organisational work I am periodically checked for Enhanced Security Clearance
• I believe that you do not need to attend counselling for longer than is healthy and necessary for you to achieve your goals

In 2008 I achieved BACP Accreditation. This means that the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists recognise I have achieved a high level of BACP training, best practice and counselling experience.
