Sarah Birdsall, Adv. Dip. Counselling Practice, Registered Member (MBACP)
35A Fore Street
People seek counselling for many different reasons; some specific such as bereavement, addiction, relationship issues, abuse, trauma, low self-esteem/confidence, anxiety and depression, and other people come with a more vague sense of dissatisfaction with life, feeling lost or dispirited.
The Person-Centred Approach to counselling resonates with me deeply; a philosophy focused on the therapeutic relationship as the vehicle for healing, change and personal growth. I aim to provide you with a safe space where you will feel received with care, compassion and understanding, and through which you can begin to unravel the challenges you are facing. I believe that each of us contain the wisdom of our own truth and have the capacity to heal ourselves through such a relationship. I am committed to supporting you to gain insight, understanding and expression of your situation, thoughts and feelings, so that you may move forward in your life with greater clarity, fulfilment and authenticity. I feel it is truly a privilege to be alongside courageous people who embark on this healing journey
Counselling can, at times, be a deep, challenging and powerful process and it is extremely important that you choose a counsellor you feel you will be able to trust. I offer a free, no obligation initial consultation, where we will discuss your requirements and how I work, so that we can both decide whether we will be suitable to work together.
