Sarah Foley, Counsellor/ Psychotherapist DIP MBACP (Accred ) ASBP COSRT, EMDR UK
Thank you for visiting my page. I am an Integrative counsellor which is a term used to describe either an integration of two or more therapies. In general, Integrative counselling is not tied to any single therapy, since I am able to take the view that your story is unique to you and not one approach is not suitable for everyone. I will meet you in my practice, providing a safe, comfortable and confidential environment. The initial session will give you a sense if therapy is the right support for you. It is an opportunity to explore personal experiences and discuss what you might like to achieve in therapy.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Experienced in dealing with ASD related conditions, psychosexual issues, bereavement / CPTSD
I can work flexibly Monday-Sunday so I am able to offer a variety of appointment times.
- I will make an appointment to meet with you for an initial assessment. The charge for the initial assessment is the same as the session cost. This will provide you with an opportunity to talk about what you would like to resolve or change and decide if therapy is the best support for you. A typical assessment and subsequent sessions are for 50 minutes. We will also discuss and decide on a review mid-therapy. This will take place to modify any treatment activities and approaches as required in order to comply with changes in your status and needs.
