About me

It is important to me that the individuals and couples I see feel respected and encouraged to create their own way through whatever brings them to counselling. To assist you to do this, I draw on a variety of different approaches that can be adapted to suit each individual client or couple. I find most clients want to achieve a balance between talking about the past and concentrating on the present and future. I will try to assist you by making links between aspects of your story or offering my views for you to consider. I will also help you look for solutions and formulate goals for change if this is what you want. I can offer you tools and techniques to assist and CBT is often used as part of this.

Considering the different parts of your personality and how these help or hinder you in the various aspects of your life and relationships is a key part of the process in most of my work.

I encourage discussion of our developing relationship as part of counselling, meeting you as an individual as well as a professional, and this can be very useful in unravelling what may be happening in other relationships and aspects of your life.

I offer a high level of personal and intellectual engagement and feedback from clients indicates that this is an important factor in the success of our work together.

I am very happy to discuss my approach to our sessions and encourage you to express your views on how things are going through regular reviews.

Please ring on 07941 670828. I will return your call as soon as possible. Or email me at Sarajacks@hotmail.co.uk.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
