Sally Powell M.A, MBACP, UKCP reg.
Be brave and take this opportunity to invest in yourself.... What ever issue is causing you distress we can work together with it and find a way through the difficulties. I am a fully trained psychotherapist and have been in practice for 10 years. I have worked with many different kinds of issues and usually a difficult issue will bring about anger or sadness or fear even because it can feel as though there is no way through. But counselling works because your problem is aired out loud and it can be looked at from a new perspectives.
The past cannot be changed but how we feel about it can. This is when therapy can really help.
I have called my business Inspiration Counselling because I believe that by talking together you will become inspired within yourself and inspired to look at what you can be capable of. I urge you to take the time to really work on yourself - for a change?
Training, qualifications & experience
UKCP Registered ; BACP Member; M.A Psychotherapy and Counselling; Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy
I hold a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy and Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy, both from the school of Psychotherapy and Counselling at Regent’s College, London. In addition to my private practice, I am a School Counsellor at Gillott’s Secondary School, Henley. I have also worked for Heatherwood Hospital NHS Mental Health Psychotherapy department and for the Slough branch of Turning Point, the alcohol and drug addiction agency.
I have been in private practice for 10 years and most of my work is with clients who stay 6-9 months up to 1 or 2 years depending on the work the client feels they need to do. But even in one session perspective can alter. We can both decide when the work has come to an end.
I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and a Registered Member of the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy), membership of which requires a rigorous five-year training. I am bound by and adhere to the BACP’S Ethical Framework and I also commit to and maintain the UKCP’S ethical Principles & Code of Professional Conduct.
It is important to note that, as part of the rigour of my training,I too have been in therapy (for 3 years) so I too know how it feels to be in that seat.
