Hello and welcome to my website
My name is Ian Hibberson and I am a fully qualified and experienced Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in private practice from my home in Nottingham.
I am a graduate in Humanistic Counselling practice from the University of Nottingham.
My aim as a counsellor is to provide you with a physical and emotional environment within which you can feel safe to explore your problems, issues and concerns with trust and without fear of judgement. I will respect and support your ability to make your own choices and be respectful and sensitive to who you are and the changes you wish to make.
As your counsellor I shall not be offering instant solutions or judgements. I will however be offering you my full and undivided attention and a commitment to supporting and working with you towards developing your own understandings, insights and solutions in ways that are right for you. Counselling offers you the opportunity, the time and the space and a safe environment within which to explore alternative and more effective ways of living.
Humanistic Person-Centred Counselling was developed by and from the work of Carl Rogers. At the heart of this approach to counselling and psychotherapy is the basic belief that within each human being there resides “... an underlying flow of movement towards constructive fulfilment of its inherent possibilities”
A Way of Being: Carl Rogers
Person-Centred Counselling is based on the conviction that we each have the capacity and inner resources needed to develop positive and lasting change. I believe that we all have the capacity to reach in and to cultivate this potential no matter how hidden, dimly perceived or blocked it may currently seem to be.
I invite you to counselling with me and the opportunity to explore your potential
and to begin to embrace positive change.
