GENTLE WAY COUNSELLING
Face to face Counselling now returning to Pen Y Bryn, Wadebridge
"We think we listen, but very rarely do we listen with real understanding, true empathy. Yet listening, of this very special kind is one of the most potent forces for change i know"
I am a Counsellor based in the North Cornwall area offering face to face and online Therapy.
I have a passion for helping others in a way that protects their personal autonomy and choice.
MY CORE VALUES
I offer the above in the genuine belief in my ability to be there for my clients in a way where they feel able to explore what has brought them to counselling.
I am a member of the BACP and work in line with the Ethical Framework.
WHY GENTLE WAY
Gentle Way is a direct translation of Judo
The smallest of movement can trigger the Greatest of Insight.
As my Judo developed my understanding of balance and resistance developed.
As my TRUST grew I developed the confidence to trust in other's.
As my anxiety about falling reduced I realised the fall was never as bad as expected, I felt safe to explore and learn.
I began to trust in myself.
My hope with every client is that I can help them to work with what ever has brought them to counselling.
You the client have control over the process. My hope is that together we can build a working relationship where you feel safe.
