Compassion focused therapy
Counselling rooms can be daunting places, I know because I been in the other chair too. The experience of sitting in front of a stranger whilst carrying painful experiences and having to silently fill in forms is uncomfortable, to say the least. Although information gathering is important, it can feel exposing in a first meeting if there's no connection. This is why I offer an alternative approach focussing on developing that connection through understanding and compassion.
