Sarah Wood - Counsellor & Supervisor, Accredited BACP Member
Hi, welcome to my profile. I am a Person Centred Counsellor covering areas in Hertfordshire and Essex. For nearly 15 years I have provided therapeutic services within local authorities and across the local community.
In 2011 I set up my independent practice and also began working for a mental health charity within the primary care service at GP surgeries.
I am experienced in counselling people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures with very different levels of need; ranging from extremely vulnerable and traumatised adults to professionals and staff experiencing more general work or family stress. I also provide various aspects of staff training and development for those working within caring professions. As well as my work with adults, I also work with children and young people displaying emotional or behavioural disturbances. This work can also extend to family relationships and parenting support.
I am available for therapeutic work in all of the above areas as well as Couples Counselling for both same sex and mixed sex relationships.
I am also a qualified clinical supervisor and am available for supervision services of counsellors and also for managers and staff working in helping professions.
I offer a safe, secure environment for you to express yourself; explore your difficulties and/or work towards uncovering your full potential. Counselling gives you the opportunity to process trauma, resolve conflict, heal your wounds and find healthy, fulfilling pathways to enrich your life. If you are unsure whether counselling is right for you or you have any questions about any aspect of my services then please feel free to contact me to discuss things.
One of my therapy rooms is situated in central Hoddesdon, which has plenty of on site parking and is on a main line bus route.
My other therapy room is within a medical centre in Buckhurst Hill and close to the train station, with on site parking also available.
I look forward to meeting with you.
