Counselling is a supportive practice based upon an understanding relationship between client and counsellor whereby non-judgmental, unconditional positive regard is extended to the client in working through the issues surrounding a current concern. It does not necessarily take you back to look at root causes as with Psychotherapy. The counsellor acts as a supportive guide in helping the client to find their own preferred solution to their difficulty.
Counselling is often used in times of emotional or traumatic stress surrounding events such as divorce or personal loss, when we may be temporarily overcome by events or their resultant complexities; counselling is a valuable supportive therapy which can help us to see the issues involved and the way ahead more clearly.

Counselling - what does it do?
Counselling is often referred to as a "talking therapy" and is used as a personal support system in a very wide variety of circumstances. Perhaps one of the better known examples would be "Relate" who, as an organisation, specialise in marital or family oriented issues.
Person - Centred Counselling, devised by Carl Rogers and also called "Client-Centred" or "Rogerian" counselling, (the basis of "Counselling") embraces a largely non-directive approach, the therapist acting as a positive, supportive, non-judgemental guide in allowing the client to find their best way forward to their own preferred solution to the issues that concern them. Requiring a close, understanding and empathetic relationship between the client and therapist counselling allows the client to freely express their innermost thoughts, fears and emotions and thereby come to terms with that which is concerning them and from there, develop inner resources to cope with the issues involved. The accent is on helping the client to take responsibility for their own thoughts and deeds and developing self-confidence and self-reliance.
An eclectic counsellor will select what is applicable to the client from a range of theories, methods and practices. Justification is based on the theory that there is no proof that any one theoretical approach works better than all others for a specific problem. The Paloma Centre is focused on the Eclectic approach including various therapies more particularly detailed within the Psychotherapy section on the website at www.thepalomacentre.com or call on 01295 812138.
