Henry Ponce

As a therapist, I know that life can be tough. That’s why I have dedicated my life to helping people overcome obstacles and find meaning and purpose along the way. My mission is to empower individuals to confront and explore life’s challenges so that they can lead fulfilling lives.

Education:

Master in Counselling (Interpersonal Dialogue) at the University of Edinburgh

Clinical Experience:

Through my MCID course, I have had the opportunity to work with diverse clients facing various challenges, including anxiety, depression, bereavement, personality and self-esteem issues. The experience I gained through actual counselling practice has been truly transformative, both personally and professionally. It has opened my eyes to new possibilities and helped me
become the best version of myself. I have learned more about myself, become more flexible and open when dealing with clients, and have taught me how to balance my practice by being
emotionally engaged and receptive to the client’s experience while facilitating in a non- impinging way. I am now more attuned to the emotional experience of my clients and
communicate with more empathic understanding. As a result, I am able to collaborate with my clients to develop healthy coping skills that empower individuals on their journey towards
mental wellness.

Therapeutic Approach:

As a counsellor, I strive to create a safe and supportive space for my clients where they can feel heard and understood. I approach each session with patience and focus, taking the time to actively listen and process everything that is shared with me. My approach is Person-Centered, where I place great importance on empathy, unconditional positive regard, and congruence in the therapeutic relationship. However, I also incorporate the Psychodynamic aspect, where I acknowledge that an individual’s past experiences play a significant role in their present
behaviour and emotions. And I work to help my clients navigate these challenges with empathy and understanding. Above all, I aim to be a compassionate and empathetic guide for my clients on their healing and personal growth journey.

You deserve to have a trusted ally by your side as you embark on your journey of unlocking your full potential and living an authentic life. I look forward to accompanying you every step of the way.
