‘Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start’

How can you support people?

I support people by ensuring that the goals the have been identified are congruent to their motivations and personal values. Once this has been communicated clearly, the client and I will develop a clear plan of action which is suited to the current context. I use regular check-ins to ensure that the goals identified are still relevant to the client.

How does your background shape the way you work?

Working in various roles in mental health and disability has taught me the importance of taking a person centred approach and understanding the context in which the person is experiencing the difficulties. It has also shaped my understanding of therapy as a flexible approach to ensure that goal achievement aligns with the client’s values and beliefs.

What is your approach to working with people?

My approach to support is acting as a guide. I like to compare it to being a navigation system in the car. Our clients have the ultimate control of the steering wheel whereas we act as the guide and every decision the client makes, we reroute our strategies based on the current situation they are in.
