About Progressive Counselling
Progressive Counselling works on the principle that we all have inner wisdom to know what is the right course of action for us. Progressive Counselling simply helps you to tap in to that wisdom.
In the same way that your GPS system uses satellites to navigate to where you want to get to, a Progressive Counselling session tends to focus on the present – where you are now – to help you, the client, to navigate to where you really want to be or to be the person that you really want to be.
After having completed year 1 and 2 of the SRMHC Diploma (accredited by the Coaching Supervision Academy), I am authorised to practice as a Developing Progressive Counsellor.
What to expect from Progressive Counselling
At our first session we will discuss your current situation as well as your wants and needs for the future.
A session will typically last an hour and further meetings are arranged, as needed.
While is it often necessary to discuss what happened in the past, if it is affecting you today, the focus of Progressive Counselling is on moving forward – on the now and how you want to progress with your life.
A core principle of Progressive Counselling is taking responsibility for your part in a situation. Because of this a Progressive Counselling session can often involve being gently challenged.
After a Progressive Counselling session it is recommended that you give yourself some space that day to process what we have covered.
