What is Person Centred Counselling?

Photo of me, Helen Skelly

As a Person Centred counsellor, I believe that all individuals are able to find the solutions to their problems if they are provided with the right therapeutic environment. This environment is based on the key principles of Person Centred therapy in which the counsellor stives to meet each client with honesty and acceptance, and places the therapeutic relationship at the heart of our work together. I offer each client a safe space, through which they set the pace and take the lead in sessions.

Like all therapeutic approaches, Person Centred counselling is not a ‘one size fits all’ solution to life problems. It works well for issues such as relationship problems, stress, depression and anxiety. If you are looking for help where you will get advice and specific techniques, then it might be worth looking for a Cognitive Behavioural Counsellor, although I am happy to discuss whether I can meet your needs in my initial free, 30 minute session.

What do I offer?

I offer my clients the option to have sessions in-person, via Zoom, or by phone. Online counselling is a way for you to engage in counselling using internet technology such as Zoom. Zoom is a way for you to see your counsellor face to face from your computer whilst engaging in therapy. Should you chose Zoom counselling, you will be guided through setting up your own encrypted Zoom account and we will meet on Zoom at a time that you have previously arranged. Sessions are 50 minutes in length.  Being able to see your counsellor gives you more of the benefits you get from face to face counselling but with the convenience of online therapy.

Things to consider
