    I have 20 years experience as a counsellor working in many different organisational and private settings.

    The Person Centred Approach is defined by the six Necessary and Sufficient Conditions for Therapeutic Growth. Three of these are Empathy, Congruence or Authenticity and Unconditional Positive Regard. 

    This is my understanding of Empathy 

    The power of projecting one’s personality into (and so fully understanding) the object of contemplation


    If you can see inside my head, If you can see inside my heart

    If you can feel the pain I feel, If you can be there when I start

    To cry or laugh or shout or scream, If you can share in what I dream

    If you can understand my mind, Such skills you have in empathy

    Trained, developed and refined, So I no longer feel alone

    It seems that you are with me, And I can take another look

    And feelings that have hurt me, The do not seem so frightening

    They do not seem so mad, 

    Not so overwhelming

    Not so bleak and not so bad

    I can start to see the truth of it

    What is false and what is real

    If you are standing next to me

    Feeling what I feel


    I have not selected a long list of issues that I have worked with as a counsellor because each person is individual even if they are working with a specific issue. My aim is to hear your individual experience, and to stand with you in whatever that brings for you.
