A Message from Massimo Rinaldi MBACP(Accred).

At times of distress or facing a challenging situation you may find it difficult to come to terms with the idea that perhaps talking to a counsellor would be the best option in finding a way forward in life.

But how do you choose the best counsellor for you near Clapham, within South West London?

The task to find a counsellor can be daunting, especially if it’s the first time one has considered to seek counselling.

I recommend that my clients to take the first step by considering meeting with me to discuss if my talking-therapy is the correct approach for them.

There is extensive research that confirms that it is the quality of the relationship between counsellor and client that makes counselling useful (and not so much the experience, or the theoretical approach, of the counsellor).

It’s our working-relationship / our therapeutic alliance that matters.

I believe that people are able to move towards their desired goal as long as they are willing to involve themselves in the counselling process and take responsibility for the choices they wish to make.

Will you choose me as your counsellor?

As your counsellor, I will offer a space that allows you to have time to get in touch with your own resources and, as importantly, decide if you wish to work with me.

Through our dialogue, you will be able to decide what you wish to explore and resolve during our therapy time together.

As Carl Rogers says:

Freedom to be oneself is a frighteningly responsible freedom, and an individual moves towards it cautiously, fearfully, and with almost no confidence at first.
