Intregrative humanist therapist
Integrative humanistic Counselling is the integration of different therapy approaches meaning it can be tailored to meet a variety of needs and concerns that aims to promote healing and facilitate the wholeness of a person's being and maximise their full potential; promoting mental, physical and emotional health without having any formed opinions, expectations or attitudes and help a person focus on the fears and hurts that limit their psychological freedom. Through self awareness it will create a healthy alliance between mind and body - empowering clients to start setting goals and practising new behaviours that will enable them to move beyond their limitations and discover greater life satisfaction; all tailored to the client's personal limits and external constraints.

How do I know if a counsellor is qualified?
A qualified counsellor will always be happy to provide you with evidence to prove their qualification upon request and should be practising under a professional body such as The BCPA (The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). For safety reasons it is important to select a counsellor who is qualified and is bound by the ethical framework of a recognised professional body.
Why do counsellors have supervision?
Counsellors have supervision to ensure that they are practising in an ethically safe and sound way and are fit to practice. The supervisor will always be an independent individual and the aim will be for the supervisor to support the counsellor in their client work therefore offering protection to the counsellor’s clients. If your counsellor needs to raise any concerns about you with their supervisor they will do so in a way that protects your identity.
How many sessions would I have?
This will be discussed and agreed between you and your counsellor. We usually work in blocks of sessions.
Who decides when the sessions will end?
This will be discussed during your sessions and extended if both you and your counsellor feel it necessary.
