I am Greta and I have been working full-time as a counsellor for over 20 years. I continue to feel passionate and curious about the human potential for change and have a firm belief in our innate capacity for growth and repair through connection. The therapeutic relationship is proven to be key to successful counselling outcomes, and as a Person-centred counsellor, I believe the importance attached to the core conditions – of empathy, authenticity and unconditional positive regard- to be a prerequisite for any effective therapy. Being able to internalise those qualities in relation to ourselves, are in themselves an indication of a successful therapy outcome! I have worked in a range of settings including Education, the NHS, the Charitable Sector as well as in private practice. I have additional training in working with children and adolescents and have had many yearsÕ experience of working in both primary and secondary schools. Attachment theory underpins my practice and I draw on creative approaches such as art and play to engage and facilitate expression and as a safe way of working through challenging issues. I am also trained in Nature based therapy, using Nature as a reflective and restorative space, both for counselling and supervision.I am also qualified as a Supervisor and apart from providing supervision for counsellors, I have had many years experience of developing and delivering non-clinical supervision for teachers, health professionals and managers in order to reduce work stress and foster resilience in the workplace. I currently provide supervision across Educational Trusts in Manchester as well as at St MaryÕs SARC.I work from home in Withington (close to the Wilmslow Road) and am happy to offer an half hour telephone/skype consultation free of charge to explore the potential for working together.
