this living is like a maze - you always know there is a way through, but the twists and turns become life itself... and always you want to be somewhere else
The conundrum for client and therapist alike - to find the path to walk together until their ways divide.
Simon offers a 'walking together' as the therapist-companion, to clients and therapists alike - to clients in the form of counselling face-to-face at Le Sentier Tranquille or online, to individual counsellor/therapists with supervision face-to-face or online, and to training groups with seminars, talks or workshops in France and the UK. As a former course director for counsellor training, a senior-accredited counsellor with over 30 years practice in a wide range of settings including primary and secondary care in the NHS, and having handled a very wide range of client situations across all ages and backgrounds, he is able to offer insights from the broad scope of his helping and training experience.
Grounded in the person-centred approach of Carl Rogers and still seeing this as the bedrock of his philosophy of working, he prizes the insights of Martin Buber and believes that our path to a congruent way of being which brings out the person we each are, is through a true understanding of the essence of being human - how we relate to ourself, to others and to our planet.
