She practices the humanistic approach of person-centred counselling and offers the client empathy, acceptance and congruence. As Serena and her client work together, the focus is on the clients process and development of identifying challenges and struggles which can cause raised anxiety, stresses and anger. It is an opportunity for the client to talk and focus on themselves and Serena offers the client empathetic understanding, positive regard to help them develop self-awareness, self worth, self acceptance and understanding. This enables the client to work through difficult times in their lives.
Serena has always excelled in customer service and care. This is an extension of her personality of helping others who are in great distress and use damaging strategies such as self harm and uncontrollable anger. She has seen the distressing impact of past relationships and bad experiences and has supported people who suffered from severe anxiety and loss, either of a loved on or a way of being. Serena understands that everyone is unique and works closely with clients to build a therapeutic relationship where the client is supported and encouraged to reflect and process their thoughts and feelings and have a better understanding of their own feelings to help improve their emotional well being and self-esteem and resolve issues and conflicts that arise in their lives.
