I often get asked why I became a counsellor. My answer is; authentic connection.
The counselling relationship provides meaningful, authentic human connection, and the opportunity for the person in counselling to be truly heard and understood as they are, and as they are experiencing life in that moment. The therapeutic process works on enabling the person to connect to themselves and understand, and accept themselves as they are.
Creating and holding the space for this acceptance and human growth to take place is a privilege that I deeply value. I am constantly in awe of, and inspired by, each individual’s courage, determination and curiosity around their own existence and relationships with others.
