Sandra Cregg, Integrative Relational Counsellor, BA(Hons) MBACP
Hello, my name is Sandra Cregg and I am a fully qualified counsellor in Thames Ditton, Surrey. I offer one-to-one talking therapy in a safe and confidential space, where you will always be heard with acceptance and without judgement.
Many people find that there are times when life has become overwhelming and they feel like they can’t cope but might be too afraid to ask for help. Things that used to be so easy suddenly seem too much, and it can be very confusing as to how that has happened. If this is how you feel now, then one-to-one counselling can help you make sense of how you got to be where you are.
I have trained and work as an Integrative-Relational Counsellor and so the foundation of my work will be the relationship between you and me. I understand that you need to feel safe enough to share with me any thoughts and feelings that perhaps you have felt unable to tell anyone else in your life. So my first priority is to offer you a warm, trusting and confidential relationship in which you can be whoever you need to be.
The integrative part means that I have studied a number of different approaches to counselling, such as psychodynamic, person-centred, and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). The benefit of this is that I can bring different ideas into your counselling, giving you a greater choice when trying to work out what’s happened to you and why. And the more you understand, the better chance you have of being able to change and move forward.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have trained, and practice, as an Integrative Relational Counsellor, having completed a BA (Hons) degree from Middlesex University. Prior to my degree, I trained as a volunteer child counsellor for The Place2Be charity, counselling children at a primary school in central London.
I have experience in providing counselling within various settings, including the NHS and the voluntary sector, and I currently work for a local charity in addition to my private practice. I am also employed as a school counsellor for a local primary school as well as working for a charity offering counselling for young people aged 11-24 years old.
I am a member of the BACP (membership number: 080941) and subscribe to their ethical codes and professional standards in my work as a counsellor.
