I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I take ideas and techniques from a number of psychotherapeutic models. At the core of my model is the relationship between the client and the therapist – you and me.
My first love in the field was Transactional Analysis and I still hold by their three core dictums.
'People are OK' - 'Everyone has the capacity to think' - 'Anyone can change' People decide their own destiny, and these decisions can be changed.
As Parlett & Hemming (1996) put it "anyone can, if they want to and have sufficient support, learn how to function in life with greater skill and satisfaction."
