My approach to counselling focuses on helping clients to identify the problem that is influencing their life, and then assist them to find ways to take a stand against the problem.
This view assists people to gain perspective and to manage the problems that try to give them trouble. In the counselling field, this is termed a “narrative approach” to counselling. See the section “Narrative ideas” for a further explanation about Narrative Therapy.
I do not see myself as “the expert” with all the answers. Rather I see my role as a facilitator who can help people to find their own solutions and goals.
