For Paige Fowora, counselling is an empowering process where the client is the expert and the counsellor will help the client to seek deeper understanding of their way of being. Paige will actively listen to the issues the client brings and cooperatively explore experiences inside the counselling room. By doing so, the client can be supported in building tools to adopt in wider society.
Paige combines Psychodynamic and Person-Centred approaches to help support clients build a better sense of self-awareness and insight, which can facilitate positive change. Paige will aim to achieve this by providing the person-centred core conditions of empathy, unconditional positive regard and genuineness that become the building blocks to facilitate a trusting relationship where the client can grow and explore their thoughts and feelings.
Paige has extensive experience of working with children and families to support and elicit long lasting change. Paige’s current background is in Social Work, supporting people who experience mental health, immigration issues, vulnerable adults, and those at risk of harm by providing both emotional and practical needs.
Paige regularly attends courses and workshops on a wide range of subjects including trauma, addiction, bereavement, young people, and mental illness. She believes that extending her knowledge of counselling and ensuring she is aware of new developments is essential to the effectiveness of her practice.
Paige is currently a trainee Integrative Counsellor undertaking Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. She works at The Awareness Centre with NHS clients for counselling in Wandsworth.
