In these busy times, the opportunity to sit with someone who listens, who hears, is very rare, but also at certain times in our lives, is very much needed.
The authentic experience of Counselling is not being talked 'at' but it's truly about being listened to, heard and most importantly, understood. This is what I endeavour to offer you.
With this understanding offered, the answers, the way forward can come from that clearer, supported place.
The following is a profound and insightful quote from Carl Rogers who was a pioneer of 'person centred therapy'.
“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.”
― Carl R. Rogers
