Hannah is a qualified person centred therapist. This means that she will work to understand an individual’s experience from their perspective, positively valuing the person in all aspects of their humanity, while aiming to be open and genuine. A vital part of the therapy is helping the client feel accepted, and better able to understand their own feelings. The approach can help the client to reconnect with their inner values and sense of self-worth, thus enabling them to find their own way to move forward and progress.
