Person-centered therapy is a model that therapists use for a nondirective and empathic approach to clients. I like to empower and motivate the client to be the best person they can possibly be and I feel in order to do that, the client needs to feel safe.
I started my university studies in 2012 and received my Diploma in Higher Education of Counselling for children and adolescents. I worked at a placement during my time at university working with children in a therapeutic environment and worked with many difficulties that clients brought to therapy such as anger, bullying issues, sexuality, depression, anxiety, family issues, self-harm etc.
I offer a nondirective and confidential approach to therapy and specialise in children and young people. In my experience of working with clients, I have used a lot of creative art materials in therapy, which has shown that this can help bring out some of our feelings and emotions that may feel quite difficult to express and talk about, but much easier to express by drawing or painting.
I work passionately and professionally in every aspect of the counselling process and work completely at the client’s pace. I understand that we can find things difficult to deal with – to me, therapy is a place to express, experience, reflect and feel safe.
