Counselling for growth and personal development

Counselling for growth and personal development draws on the concepts and ideas of the humanistic approach.

Humanistic therapies (i.e. person-centered therapy and gestalt therapy) encourage you to recognise how you think about yourself and perceive your own individual strengths.

Person-centered therapy

Person centered therapy offers you time and space to reflect and learn more about yourself and helps you to see yourself in a more positive light, which in turn can increase self esteem, self confidence, increase mood and improve self awareness.  The overall aim is to provide an opportunity to work towards living more satisfyingly and resourcefully.

The therapeutic relationship

Person-centered therapy uses the therapeutic relationship to facilitate self-knowledge, emotional acceptance, growth, and the optimal development of personal resources.
