“An equal relationship of trust and collaboration between the client and the therapist is usually the most important element in effective therapy.”
I find it helpful for some people to have a general idea of what therapy can look like in a confidential, client-centred setting. Certainly, every client is different and every client’s journey in counselling is different. What matters most is that we allow space for our working alliance to flourish.
I work to ensure the conditions are right to foster our relationship by listening to your perspectives and holding a quiet, confidential space for our conversation. We can usually tell by the second or third session whether we have the ‘chemistry’ to explore your concerns and inspire change in ways that are meaningful to you.
