How I Approach Counselling and Psychotherapy
I am passionate about discovering and realising the potential in my clients. The way I work with my clients include:
sitting with and exploring emotional struggles with the client, allowing safety in their vulnerability
affirming my client’s value and sense of self-worth and autonomy
empowering the client with the decision to determine the focus of therapy
building up skills towards resilience
offering different perspectives and exploring resistance to change
developing a collaborative therapeutic relationship through modelling a corrective emotional experience and allowing the client to practice their learning in a safe space
My approach to counselling and psychotherapy utilises an integrative psychotherapy approach, incorporating a variety of approaches such as:
attachment and family of origin
