see each client as an individual and the therapeutic relationship as a powerful
vessel, which can enable the clientís healing and growth.
will therefore endeavour to form a healthy, professional, therapeutic
relationship with each individual client and then together we can
work towards the individualís healing by way of appropriate goals, mutually
the therapeutic relationship needs the client to actually want to make that
change to enable the ultimate healing and growth of the clientís maximum
potential. We therefore need commitment from the client that they really want
this change, in order for us to work together as a professional equal
partnership. In return we will show equal commitment, offering
appropriate support and assistance to you in exploring your problems, but we
cannot do all the work for you. Your best healing and growth will be
attained by how much you are prepared
to put in to the therapy. We believe this professional relationship
is the most significant factor, enabling each individual to move on in his
or her own way.
The foundation or essential ingredient to this relationship is TRUST, and we appreciate this takes time to build or learn to trust a stranger, especially if in the past our trust has been misused by others. However, we will endeavour to provide the right environment and circumstances for our relationship to develop professionally, in order for us to use the relationship to encourage your ultimate growth and therefore healing.
