Our Therapeutic Alliance
Decades of research have shown that there are two key ingredients that determine the success of any therapy:
1. Your commitment to the process,
2. The strength of our therapeutic relationship.
This means we both have an important role to play. I will give 100% in our time together, and will support you to give what you can. As trust builds naturally over time, you will find that you want to open more and go further, thereby creating more opportunities for deep work.
The Role You Play
The single most important factor for successful therapy is your commitment to the process. This is why it is so important that you find a counsellor with whom you feel comfortable and safe.
What you get out of therapy will reflect the quality of your therapeutic relationship with your counsellor. For example, if your relationship is practical, your outcomes are likely to be practical. If your relationship with your counsellor is honest, you are likely to enter into a more honest relationship with yourself. If your relationship is strong, genuine and respects your individuality, you will emerge a stronger person, capable of genuine relationships, and more confident in your individuality.
It's worth taking the time to find the right counsellor for you.
"Your healing journey begins upon realizing that it is not the challenges you face in life that define you, but how you choose to respond. Your greatest allies will be those who believe in you, and who can help you transform your experiences into a powerful new perspective on your life. I am one of the many who will emerge to offer support along your path."
