Sarah Briggs Dip.Int.Counselling MBACP
I am a fully qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and I offer a confidential, non-judgemental environment where you will be met with empathy and understanding. I believe that counselling facilitates change and personal growth. Exploring thoughts and feelings from both the past and present leads to a deeper self-awareness and a path for moving forward. Together we can explore the tools and resources you need for making changes and overcoming your difficulties, leading to a more contented life.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I strictly adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework in maintaining safe and ethical practice. I regularly update my training as part of my Continuing Professional Development.
I offer counselling for both adults and adolescents for a range of issues such as 'anxiety’, 'stress', ‘relationships’, 'self-harm', ‘loss’, ‘eating disorders' and ‘depression’. You may simply feel 'stuck' or 'overwhelmed' and just need someone who will listen without judging. I follow the integrative approach to counselling, incorporating different theoretical approaches which I adapt to the individual needs of the client. I offer both short term counselling for six weeks or long term counselling, which can be open ended with regular reviews.
I offer counselling for adolescents who face many pressures in the transition from childhood to adulthood. Exam pressure, relationships, being part of a peer group and establishing their personal identity can all cause stress and anxiety. Counselling offers a safe, empathic, non-judgemental place in which they can build on their self-esteem and ability to handle problems as they gain a sense of being valued and understood.
