Person-centred and existential therapy

Person-centred therapy, inspired principally by the ideas of Carl Rogers, works on the premise that each of us has within us all the resources necessary for our own development and fulfilment. Furthermore there are three core prerequisites to the therapist's relationship with the client: empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. These elements are fundamental to my practice.

Additionally I am trained to work from an existential perspective. This is a practical, direct approach founded on the principle that we are each directly responsible for our own lives and means that rather than relying on referencing all my clients' life problems to issues buried deep in their psychological histories, I am able to bring a constructive and decisive focus on matters going forward from the present moment.
