Influences & Philosophies

As a Counsellor I am trained in, and influenced by, a variety of therapeutic philosophies and techniques focusing on, but not limited to, the following;

Person-Centered: Counselling is not only about looking at the past, it is also about building a sustainable future that is spiritually, intellectually and emotionally fulfilling. This may require an exploration of the transpersonal as well as the attitudes, behaviours and feelings associated with everyday experience.  The real point is that the client already has the answers to the problems and the job of the counselor is to listen without making any judgements, without giving advice, and simply help the client feel accepted and understand their own feelings.  (

Relational Somatic Therapy:  Relational Somatic Therapy focuses on the Somatic experience, and the embodied self, including therapeutic and holistic approaches to the body.  It is one of the best ways to help clients suffering from psychological traumas, cope, recover and live a normal life.

Gestalt:  The goal of Gestalt Therapy is for clients to become aware of what they are, how they are doing it, and how they may change themselves, and at the same time, learn to accept and value themselves.  Gestalt Therapy focuses more on process (what is happening) than content (what is being discussed).  The emphasis is on what is being done, thought and felt at the moment rather than on what was, might be, or should be. (

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy:  CBT is a form of psychology in which the therapist and client work together to identify and solve problems.   The work is focused on helping the client to overcome difficulties by changing their thinking, behavioural and emotional responses. (
