Person centered

During counselling sessions I use a person-centred approach, meaning the sessions are what you want to discuss, and together we will explore your concerns and difficulties.  I also draw on the other theories mentioned above as appropriate.  This helps to offer the right individual support to suit the different needs of each client.
