- Counselling and Psychotherapy with John Maguire - Approach to counselling


Brave Therapy Counselling & Psychotherapy Approach

The therapy I provide is based primarily within the Humanistic School of Psychotherapy. I draw on Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Solution Focused approaches I also use Gestalt and Transactional Analysis exercises to help a client explore and understand themselves. However what does any of that that actually mean?

It basically means that in my counselling practice, I offer clients respect, warmth and complete honesty. Your life journey is your own and the choices you make are made against the backdrop of your unique life story. These choices and experiences will be valued and respected but from time to time, they will also be gently challenged. I believe there is no behaviour without reason and together we can gently explore the reasons for any particular behaviours that are causing you concern.

If you are looking for counselling, you already know that something isn’t working the way you want it to. Together we can explore what that is, how it’s come about and what you would like to change. Some clients want to stop there, others want to continue working to develop a change package. 

I also believe that money should not be a barrier to effective counselling and try to offer flexible rates which clients can afford.

Affordable rates

Rates are fully negotiable and dependent on what you can afford to pay.Typical rates range from £35.00 to £60.00 per counselling session.

Where possible I will consider lower cost options and try and accommodate those on low incomes.

I also offer special counselling rates to those who commit to longer term arrangements such as trainee counsellors.
