Sarah Victor UKCP registered psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor
We seek counselling and psychotherapy for a variety of reasons. It is often because of the difficulties and challenges in our daily lives that sometimes become overwhelming and may impact upon our relationships, work, and personal and professional judgements. It is sometimes beyond our control to address those issues without professional help. Seeking such help isn't a sign of weakness, on the contrary, it is a sign of strength. It takes courage to enter into therapy.
The overall aim of therapy is to provide you with an opportunity to work through difficulties in a safe and confidential environment without feeling judged. Such issues may involve areas of your life which you feel troubled by, either in your personal life or at work. Issues brought to therapy may involve self esteem and confidence, relationship problems, anxiety, depression, work related stress, bereavement, loss, abuse, rape, identity.
I work with people to enable them to experience life in the fullest way that is available to them. This is through the uniqueness of a therapeutic relationship - which is the availability of another human being who has no preconception of you and no personal agenda other than to be in relationship with you and be helpful in guiding you in your right direction.
I am a fully qualified UKCP registered Integrative psychotherapist.
My psychotherapy practice is based in both Sutton Coldfield and Lichfield.
On a Monday and Tuesday I work from my comfortable, bright and quiet therapy room in Lichfield, WS13.
Sutton Coldfield Therapy Centre, B72 1UP
On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I am based at my consulting room in a professional therapy centre, located in Sutton Coldfield town centre. This local clinic has a well established reputation within the area.
WHAT YOU MIGHT EXPECT FROM COUNSELLING/PSYCHOTHERAPY WITH ME?
There are a number of ways of helping individuals depending upon the issues they bring. The outcome of any type of therapy is dependent on a variety of dynamics - the effectiveness of the therapist, the limitations of the approach, the commitment and effort from the client, the complexity of the issues brought into therapy. Counselling/psychotherapy does not offer a magic wand and entering into therapy requires serious consideration. An initial consultation with your therapist gives you the opportunity to agree whether this is the suitable way forward for you.
