CONFIDENTIALITY is of the utmost importance
"Counselling is a confidential and ethically protected relationship with a trained practitioner who will take your personal concerns seriously." - Susan Barker
From a person centred approach the relationship is based on respect and trust, with the notion that you have the resources within towards growth.
The relationship is based on unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence, placing you at the centre of the work and encouraging self-determination.
Counselling offers a way to gain perspective on your behaviour, emotions and relationships.
It provides a means to express feelings and identify thinking patterns.
It alleviates anxiety, depression and anger in their many forms and it helps develop communication skills for dealing with conflict and frustration.
It is a means for addressing emotional pain, working through loss and finding meaning in life.
