I work in different ways with different people but on five basic principles.
That everyone has the capacity to change the way they think, act and feel.
That most people already have the resources they need but don't always know how to use them.
That new resources can be developed regarless of age.
That therapy doesn't have to be like pulling teeth. Regardless of what approach I use the atmosphere tends to be relaxed and occasionally with a touch of humour.
That therapy should be available to all. I see a lot of clients and can afford to vary my fees according to means. eg Unemployed, Income Support etc.I also take on the occasional no-fee client as circumstances require and permit.
