I feel successful counselling is built on the foundation of a quality therapeutic relationship. I will work with you and try to build that relationship. I will do this by treating everything we talk about as confidential, being honest, genuine, respectful and non-judgemental. This will build trust between us, and of the counselling process, which will enable you to explore your feelings and thoughts at your own pace and in a safe space.
During counselling we will work together to build and reinforce a good therapeutic relationship so that I can help you to achieve the outcome you desire.
Although predicting exactly what will happen is challenging, as each therapeutic relationship is different and each clients experience unique, a successful therapeutic relationship can enable and promote in the client self-confidence, self-esteem, self-motivation, self-belief. This can also increase self-awareness leading to understanding, opportunity and motivation to change through choice.
A counselling session built on a successful therapeutic relationship will provide a safe, reassuring 'space' where you feel supported, enabling you to discuss and explore your thoughts and feelings, understand your experiences and promote your well being.
