The key philosophy of Person Centred Counselling is, all people have the ability to grow and develop given the right conditions. Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through Person Centred Counselling we are able to offer these right conditions to help you rediscover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Here we offer one to one and group reflective practice. This is in a safe protected place for educational professionals to reflect on themselves and their own practice, using the therapeutic relationship offered by a counsellor. This relationship is based on a high level of challenge, coupled with complete support, to encourage the professional to consider problems from another's viewpoint. This is also a place to reflect on the children they teach and the staff and families they work along side. It allows space to assess the impact of all the demands and expectations placed on these relationships and creates a self supporting culture, able to embrace its challenges and overcome them together.
This uses therapeutic play as a means to communicate with the child, helping them to explore and express their feelings and emotional problems. It can allow a child to work through their anxieties where they can realign themselves, helping to overcome these difficulties. When a child acts out, this can be seen as bad behaviour, however this is just a means of communicating the thing they are unable to express. Therapeutic play can help this, giving the child a safe place to come to terms with their inner turmoil, resulting in improved behaviour.
