How I Work

Sessions

The Person-Centred counselling approach was devised by and based on the theory and philosophy of Dr. Carl Rogers. It is a non-directive approach based on the assumption that a client seeking help in the resolution on the problem they are experiencing, can enter into a relationship with a counsellor who is sufficiently accepting and permissive to allow the client to freely express themselves without being directed by the counsellor.

I am trained and committed to listening to you in a special way that doesn’t judge you, nor tell you what to do. I offer you a caring, compassionate and confidential relationship where you can openly and freely explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions as much or as little as you wish to. This can help you to make sense of your experiences, accept your feelings, gain a new perspective or help you find ways of coping with the difficulties that you might be facing. It can also lead to greater self-trust, confidence and self-esteem, and will enable you to develop your own inner resources. The objective is for you to become able to see yourself as a person with the power and freedom to change; to become your own expert.

I understand the need for privacy and confidentiality, and my practice in Diss and Norwich operates from quiet and secluded rooms. I offer 1-hour sessions, following on from an initial session to establish that we would like to work together.
