Our uniqueness is both beautiful and can be exceptionally challenging. Identifying our true selves and ways out of difficult internal times can feel impossible on our own. It is important that we try to solve our own problems and learn to reassure ourselves, but allowing, in total confidence, a trained professional into your unique internal world to be there with you can make this process possible. Counselling with Jacquie can provide you with a companion to feel safe with as you navigate the complexities causing you difficulties. Perhaps some things inside of you are hard to come to terms with, uncomfortable to acknowledge and/or not even visible to you yet. Unlocking the whole of you might take time, but it’s possible, and you do not need to do it alone.
Allowing time for your true self to be heard, without judgement, respectfully, in a safe and confidential space shines light on your unique world. It gently reveals ways of finding your path to being your best.
What is a Person-Centred Counsellor?
A Person-Centred Counsellor is a professional therapist specialising in a humanistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy. This therapeutic model, developed by Carl Rogers, places the individual at the centre of the therapeutic process, emphasising empathy, unconditional positive regard, and congruence between the counsellor and the client. Here’s a closer look at what you can expect when working with a Person-Centred Counsellor:
- Unconditional Positive Regard: Person-centred counsellors offer non-judgmental acceptance and respect to their clients. They create a safe and supportive environment where individuals can freely express their thoughts and feelings without fear of criticism.
- Empathy: These counsellors possess a deep capacity for empathy. They strive to understand their clients’ experiences from their perspective, fostering a strong therapeutic alliance built on trust and understanding.
- Congruence (Genuineness): Person-centred counsellors are authentic and genuine in their interactions. They aim to be transparent and open, allowing clients to see the counsellor as a real and trustworthy ally in their journey toward self-discovery and personal growth.
The Therapeutic Process:
- Client-Centred: The Person-Centred approach is client-focused, meaning the client’s unique needs, goals, and experiences are central to the therapy process. The counsellor facilitates self-exploration and self-acceptance, allowing clients to find their own solutions and insights.
- Active Listening: These counsellors are skilled in active listening, which involves hearing what the client says and understanding the underlying emotions and concerns. This deep listening helps clients gain clarity about their feelings and thoughts.
- Empowerment: Person-centred counsellors empower clients to take control of their lives and make positive changes. They believe individuals have the capacity for self-directed growth and change when provided with the right conditions.
Areas of Expertise:
Person-centred counsellors are well-suited to help clients with a wide range of issues, including but not limited to:
- Anxiety and Stress
- Relationship Problems
- Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence

Why Choose a Person-Centred Counsellor?
Suppose you’re seeking a counselling experience marked by empathy, respect, and a strong focus on your individual needs and goals. In that case, a Person-Centred Counsellor may be your right choice. This approach is particularly effective for those who value a supportive and non-directive therapeutic environment where self-discovery and personal insight are encouraged.
Whether you’re dealing with specific challenges or looking to explore your inner world more deeply, a Person-Centred Counsellor can guide you toward greater self-awareness, self-acceptance, and overall well-being.
