“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” Carl Rogers

Geoff BrittonI am a qualified counsellor and Registered Accredited Member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy – Reg. MBACP (Accred.). I operate from Gillingham, North Dorset but have clients throughout Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire. I uphold the BACP’s Values and Ethical Framework for good practice and am accountable to them. I hold appropriate professional indemnity insurance.

My core counselling qualification is as a Humanistic, Integrative Practitioner which means that whilst I help individuals to understand, process and contextualise their difficulties, my overriding aim is to help them to recognise their strengths and choices, focussing on their development and growth as human beings. I draw on several modes of practice to best suit the needs and expressed wishes of my clients.

In practical terms, my approach could be likened to a homeopathic one since I aim to use the minimum necessary intervention to support achievement of the agreed aims. Consequently, I do not have any fixed position about the relative benefits of either long or short term therapy, preferring to work in accordance with a client’s agreed needs and expressed wishes.
