"...Human kind is trustworthy, creative, self-motivated, powerful and constructive... capable of releasing undreamed of potentialities..." (Rogers, 1980)
Humanistic Counselling offers space for clients to develop themselves with a holistic, tailor made approach, working creatively, empathically, and at your own pace, whilst emotionally supporting the client, keeping them safe to explore often difficult, and painful issues, which often have been carried and contained for many years. The Humanistic approach offers the client a deeper understanding of themselves as individuals, making their own choices, using their own autonomy.
I studied at the University of Nottingham, where I gained a BA (Hons) degree in Humanistic Counselling Practice. My background is in supportive capacities in homelessness, mental health, and domestic abuse. I have worked as a volunteer counsellor with Place2Be, Nottinghamshire YMCA and Cruse Bereavement Care.
I have a particular interest in self-care and self-esteem, as well as people who have experienced domestic abuse. I have seen the impact that self doubt, and lack of self-care can have on a persons life and emotional, mental and physical wellbeing. There are various reasons and events leading to people feeling negative about themselves, from traumatic experiences to outside messages given to people throughout their lives. Our experiences make us who we are. We all need to ask for help at some point in our lives, if you need my help, please contact me on the number or email address on the contact page.
