'Man has the key of life in his own hands, if only he knew it.' Hazrati Khan
I believe counselling is about giving an individual the ability to grow and develop to their full potential. My role as a therapist is to provide a non-judgmental environment where the client is heard and seen. My aim is to work with the client to create an authentic healing relationship from which they can draw whatever they need. I believe that each individual has within them the ability to move forward, to grow and develop.
Therapy is a liberating process and an opportunity for growth. I find a lot of people have pre-conceived ideas about therapy and think of the therapist as someone who will tell you what to do and that you might become dependent on him. But a good therapist will be there to guide you and reveal aspects of yourself that you didn’t know were there.
Amongst many things, it is about getting to know yourself better and acknowledging that previous experiences don’t have to define who you are today. It is about taking responsibility for oneself and how to act in the world and that we can always rewrite our script. It is a real awakening to life.
