General Adult Counselling: -The adult outreach therapy is a free service available to all. The service provides the opportunity to look at what could be going on in a safe, confidential environment. Giving clients the opportunity to share their problems with someone who is outside of their personal situation and who can listen without judging. Maximum 18 Free sessions

Elderly outreach talking therapy: This service is provided free of charge to the elderly and housebound. Maximum 18 free sessions.

Children play and art therapy: We use play and art to address young children’s behaviour, developmental age and mental health needs. We believe it is possible to remove barriers to learning by laying the foundation for making healthy life choices as a child/teenager and in later years.

Children & Young Peoples counselling: We are dedicated to the promotion of Children’s Health Safety and well being.We believe emotional and social behavioural skills underline aspects of everyday life. When children and young people have these skills they are able to sustain friendships , resolve problems as well as learning to manage strong feelings such as pain, anger, anxiety, happiness, sadness, fear etc.

Member organisations *


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.

Further information

I originally started the company Make A Difference At Sandy’s in 2005, which provided a wide range of therapeutic services to the public and now currently provides support to the new organisation (Make A Difference At Sandies) in the form of professional services which include protection of children and vulnerable adults. My background is in finance and I pride myself on my people management skills. I am a qualified tutor and registered counsellor with BACP. As one of the directors of Make A Difference At Sandies, I am able to offer my expertise in Management, clinical supervision, and training. As a trustee and working director of the new organisation since registration in July 2012, I have been busy putting relevant documentation and information together for the charity commission, designing community projects and making applications for funding.

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.
