The process of counselling
Counselling is a collaborative relationship involving the therapist and the individual seeking help. People's difficulties are generally seen as arising from, past experiences, the current environment, and past relationships. Within therapy each area may be explored in order to understand the cause of the difficulties. This process involves clients leading the way in what is talked about, therapy gives them the space to reflect and understand their thoughts and feelings in regard to unresolved issues. Counselling is a method that enables individuals to work towards positive change, which is often stifled when people experience difficulties. The therapeutic relationship is there to assist people through this process.My name is Sylvia Sanders. I have a wide range of training but my philosophy is rooted within the Humanist view of human nature. Exploration, attentive listening, non judgemental reflection, regard and support are used, as these conditions can help a client to grow and change. The counselling relationship follows mutually agreed rules, towards a goal, with the aims of developing a client's strengths and enabling the client to find their own solutions.How does it help?Through informed and open dialogue therapy aims to address the causes, reduce symptoms and enable people to live more fully.I work from a comfortable, safe, private counselling room located near public transport links.
