Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach
Niamh’s approach to counselling and psychotherapy is holistic and person centered. She uses an integrative and humanistic approach, along with CBT. Niamh believes that the relationship between the counsellor and the client is key to developing a trusting therapeutic space, where client and counsellor can work together to explore ways towards achieving the goals and needs of each individual client.
Niamh is influeneced by the work of Roberto Assagioli, who writes “Let us examine whether and how it is possible to solve this central problem of human life, to heal this
fundamental infirmity of man. Let us see how he may free himself from this enslavement and achieve an harmonious inner integration, true Self-realization, and right relationships with others.”
