Counselling Approach

Teah Scotten practices from an Adlerian informed approach with an emphasis on the therapeutic relationship.   Her practice is inclusive of a variety of techniques and interventions to best fit the needs and goals of the individual client, while encouraging self-exploration, focusing on empowering clients, and exploring interpersonal and social factors that may be holding clients back from working towards growth and well-being.   Through offering a non-judgmental presence, Teah hopes to help clients feel supported and gain clarity about the obstacles they would like to work through.

Counselling Philosophy

Teah believes an important part of the counselling process and her role within it is to offer a safe space for clients to express themselves. Teah encourages clients by acknowledging strengths and resources while supporting growth as changes emerge, and supporting clients in strengthening their personal resources so they are better prepared to work through life challenges and experience greater fulfillment.

Teah also believes it is an important aspect of the counselling process for people to explore their core beliefs and their origin, and how they influence the present.
