Welcome. The information on my website aims to address some of the questions people have about psychotherapy. The field has been shaped by many theories and I am open to their value in my therapeutic practice but essentially my work is based on the Person-Centred Approach (PCA) developed by Carl R. Rogers.
Warmth and respect
This approach is a professional accompaniment based on deep respect for the experience of the individual in their singularity and their personal process. In this approach I have confidence in the person’s ability to use whatever resources they need to find their own direction.
Support and trust
My goal as a therapist is to accompany the person whilst being fully present, warm and open to them. This gradual, therapeutic engagement on both sides, creates a free and confidential space where the person can continue their search and self-exploration in their own way and at their own pace, thereby offering the possibility of real change and growth.
My therapeutic stance is based on three core conditions: Empathy – being with the person where they are, Unconditional Positive Regard or non-judgement. Congruence – the therapist’s genuineness – is also a key ingredient. When appropriate I will take care to share my outlook without expecting the other person to agree with everything I say.
As you browse this site you will find more details about my work and therapy in general. I also welcome any questions you may have so please feel free to contact me
