Your therapist role:
I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and I believe that giving a warm, empathic, non-judgemental and honest environment helps the client to feel listened to and valued. They can make sense of what they’re going through and express their feelings and thoughts.
I use play therapy when I believe that my client will benefit from it, especially when working with younger children. I believe that play therapy can be the main tool to help the child to make sense of what they’re going through, to help them express their feelings and thoughts. I also believe that creative therapies can be useful when working with clients of any age as it helps to unlock what our defence mechanisms are so cleverly hiding from our consciousness.
