Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach

Pauline uses a  humanistic, person centered, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach.  Pauline provides a supportive, warm, non judgemental and safe environment for couples and individuals to explore their problems.  She believes that each individual experiences events in their own unique way and she adapts her approach to suit each client’s needs.  People experience emotional impact differently and personal childhood experiences influence our beliefs which may cause difficulties in close relationships, as well as other areas of clients’ lives.
