Person Centred Counselling

Embracing Personal Growth and Empowerment: Person Centred Counselling

Nurturing Change and Self-Actualisation Through Empathy, Congruence, and Unconditional Positive Regard

Person-Centred Counselling is a humanistic approach and my core theoretical philosophy.

Person Centred Counselling proposes everyone has the desire and capacity for personal growth and change (self-actualisation), given the right conditions.

The therapist, through the use of:

  • empathy (seeing your viewpoint as if they were you)
  • congruence (responding with honesty and transparency in how they experience you and your world)
  • unconditional positive regard (accepting and valuing you)

support their clients to attend to any negative feelings, to make changes through new choices and perspectives and develop in their own way. You are the expert of your experiences, not the therapist.

The therapist offers curiosity and encouragement for exploration into the meaning of the client’s experiences, helping clients explore their feelings, beliefs, behaviours, and worldview, leading to greater self-awareness and independence for the client.

After a long wait and debate with myself if I should reach out for help or not, I decided to reach out to Stuart. I’m so glad I did because he helped me get back on track with my life. I felt very comfortable and heard.

I've always been dubious of counselling but having spent time with Stuart following some issues I can wholeheartedly say: 1. Stuart is an absolutely incredible counsellor and a really nice guy 2. Counselling really really works 3. I can't recommend him highly enough 4. The negative review of him is clearly fake!!

I moved from Australia to England and battled many issues during the move. I reached out for help with Stuart and I cannot thank him enough for everything he did back in 2019. I have since moved back to Australia and now living in my dream city and I owe it all to him. He made me see value in my life, I felt comfortable the second I sat down with him, he was understanding, non judgemental and he genuinely cared. I can say Stuart saved my life. He is a pro at what he does

Highly recommend Personally I cannot thank Stuart enough for the last 8 months of support. He has helped me in more ways than I can express. Stuart has such a calming influence and his practice is so personalised to the individual. I would highly recommend Stuart to anyone who is considering therapy, he is very flexible and understanding, he is extremely good at helping you understand yourself and is very good at putting things into perspective and in ways that are easy to understand and reflect upon. Hugely grateful for everything you have helped me achieve Stuart. Thank you

Stuart has shared my own therapeutic journey with me over the last 12 months, through which I've experienced deep insights and wonderful transformation into someone who is now deeply content in and grateful for who I am. As a trainee counsellor myself, I have not only found Stuart's clarity, experience and genuineness of great benefit but very inspiring too.

Stuart has been a fantastic support to me in a difficult time, he explained everything to me in a way that I could understand and I cannot speak highly enough of the help he provided!
