Becky Gardner

Counsellor

Bsc(Hons)Psych; MBACP

At the core of a good therapeutic relationship is trust, the sense that you can talk about whatever feels right in the moment, perhaps something you have never felt able to disclose to anyone before. I am under no illusion that it won’t take time for this trust to build.

There are numerous theoretical approaches cited which can be confusing to interpret. I draw on a number of theoretical concepts as a “back drop” to my work, but whatever the theory, the heart of my work entails seeing each person as an individual with whatever uniqueness that brings to the counselling process. I aim to interpret what is being told to me through the client’s own unique “lens” of personal experience, rather than an agenda of what I might “think is best”. I work alongside each client, a dual therapeutic relationship working in tandem. For counselling to be effective, the client needs to feel fully heard, understood and respected.\

 

About Me

At the risk of sounding simplistic, my passion has always been People: why we behave the way we do, what makes us tick, what makes one person’s perspective so different to another’s etc…

A number of close family bereavements led me to counselling where I have been able to appreciate first hand that counselling really can work and enable one to feel complete, “alive” and whole as a person, perhaps for the first time ever.
