Our relationships to others are how we make sense of the world, and ourselves. Central to our work together will be the relationship you and I can build together; one that I hope will be safe, collaborative, and genuine. We can use this relationship as a lens through which to view the other relationships in your life; both with others and with yourself.
Over time, we learn different ‘roles’ and ways of being that we inhabit, depending on who we are around. These serve a purpose, but it can make it hard to know who we truly are.One of the principal theories of humanistic counselling is that if you can show the hidden parts of yourself to someone who will accept and respect you, you will in turn learn to accept and respect yourself. This doesn’t mean I will never challenge you, or experiment with looking at a situation in a different way; but it does mean that I will aim to create a space in which you feel heard and understood, and where your agency and autonomy are held in high regard.
