Sarah Pearce Dip.Couns MBACP(Reg)
It can be hard to know where to start. I offer a free, no obligation, 30 minute consultation, which gives us a chance to meet, to start to talk about what is troubling you and to answer any questions you may have about counselling.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have experience of working with a range of emotional difficulties, as well as personal development. Life can throw obstacles at us which can leave us feeling overwhelmed. My counselling room provides a safe, confidential and caring space where I will listen to you and support you. Together we can look at what is important to you, explore areas of your life that have been distressing you and support you through any changes you may wish to make.
I go with what you bring, offering you a space to express yourself freely. I will not judge you or tell you what you should or shouldn’t do.
If you would like to make an appointment, please contact me either by email, text or telephone. I check my messages regularly and will aim to get back to you within 24 hours (Mon-Fri).
