This is the “about me” section
My personal profile
My experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counselling is the relationship between the counsellor and the client. I have found that when the relationship is trusting and comfortable, it allows any problem to be looked into and potentially resolved.
I believe that therapy needs to be individually tailored to each person. Fundamentally, although I do draw upon my experiences of offering therapy and my own knowledge of the different methods of counselling, it will be a unique experience with each client.
People aren’t all the same; what depression feels like for one person may be very different for another, and that is why we would need to explore it together.
