Unconditional Positive Regard
Within my practice I offer confidentiality and the belief to offer unconditional positive regard to all participants in the session, without regard to age, ethnicity or gender. In doing so, I strive for fairness by seeking balance and equality around speaking and listening across both participants within the session.
Each person’s story has an equal right to be told. And to be heard.
