How counselling can help you

Using person centred techniques, a non-judgemental space is created, allowing the client to lead the session in their own unique way while enhancing their self-acceptance and self-esteem. The counsellor gives unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence during this period.

You may wonder what these terms mean? How can they help you? Let me explain so you can decide for yourself.

Unconditional positive regard refers to the counsellor showing compassion and acceptance no matter what they bring to counselling.

This may have a impact on well being, allowing increased levels of confidence and motivation to show through in a person.

Empathy will occur as the counsellor tries to understand the persons point of view and will put themselves in their clients footsteps. Better social communication and awareness in a person can follow from this.

Congruence happens as the counsellor presents themselves as authentic and without facade when working with clients. Thoughts and feelings are expressed with honesty, allowing the building of trust in the relationship.
