Personal Philosophy of Counselling
Counselling is first and foremost a valuable form of help for those in distress and the relationship between Client and Counsellor will always be the corner stone of this alliance. Therapeutic intervention not only encompasses practiced ability but more importantly it allows the Client to matter, to be heard, to be seen, to understand that we "get them".
Sufficient knowledge of counselling theories and theorists is required during initial Counselling/Psychotherapy training and beyond to provide an insight into the human condition and related therapeutic work. Carl Roger's Person Centred approach underpins the required elements necessary to work effectively within this helping profession and as such become crucial within this field.
