Peak Therapy

Bringing counselling to you

AronKirk Portrait Think about the convenience of having a fully qualified counsellor visit you at home. Perhaps you cannot get out due to a disability or a frailty of some kind. Illness or social phobias can be other contributing factors where home counselling may be beneficial for some people. Whatever your reason may be – if home counselling is something that may be of benefit to your well-being, then PEAK THERAPY – HOME VISIT COUNSELLING could help.

My name is Aron and I am a fully qualified Person-Centred Psychotherapist based in Derbyshire, and covering parts of the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire areas. (Please contact me to see if I cover your particular area). I also have a room that I can use for counselling and psychotherapy sessions, which is located within The Helpful Bureau building in Stapleford, Nottingham.

During my long journey towards becoming a therapist, I met with many people in their own homes (home visits). This work was very rewarding for me, seeing How well the people I worked with were able to move forward in their own way and discover a more positive and more life-enriching outlook. I also found home visits extremely fulfilling, as I felt that I was reaching out to people who would otherwise not have been able to meet with me.

As a Person-Centred Counsellor, I believe that all people have their own innate ability to grow and develop in their own way, and at their own pace. This is often referred to in counselling as ‘The Actualising Tendency’. What this means is that given the right support in a caring, empathic and nurturing environment, a person will be encouraged to explore their own ability to move forward or become more able to cope with those troubling elements that may be holding them back. I believe that people have within them the power to grow and develop, and to resolve the issues that they face. I feel that my role is to help to empower and facilitate that change and development, allowing them to explore at their own pace without judgement.

I feel passionately that the way people grow best is through their relationship with others, and making sense of the world around them. The development of a strong, healthy therapeutic relationship is key to the success of counselling. This relationship is created by working at relational depth with empathic genuine acceptance and mutual respect.

Some people do not listen with the intent to understand. Instead, they listen with the intent to reply. This can make us feel unheard and unaccepted. As a person-centred counsellor, I will listen to you in a warm and caring way and will empathise with what is happening for you without judgement. I will be open and honest with you, and you can rely on the boundaries of confidentiality that are set out at the start of our therapeutic relationship. I believe that people have, within them, the power to grow and develop, I feel my role as a therapist is to help empower people to discover and use that potential.
