Omar Sattaur MBACP (Accred.) EMDR Europe Accred. Practitioner
I have been counselling since 2002, offering emotional support and practical help to adults in times of need.
Stress, trauma, loss and fear are just a few of life's challenges that can knock us off course. I see therapy as a way not only of getting you back on track, fast, but helping you to fulfil your potential.
When the difficulties of life leave you feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope, I can help you to find the first steps to recovery. I work collaboratively, at your pace, according to goals that we will agree on together.
No one therapy can work for all, so my approach is to build on what works for you, drawing on therapeutic disciplines that best fit your presentation and personality.

The first step
Taking the first step can be difficult. Perhaps you don’t even know what the ‘problem’ is or feel confident about explaining it. I’m sure that I can help you to gain some clarity and make changes for the better.
We will identify the challenges you face and what you want to change. We will agree on the type of therapy most suited to overcoming those challenges. We will work together to identify your goals and how we might measure your progress.
Together we will agree on future sessions according to your needs and goals.
Counselling via Skype
If travel is difficult for you we may be able to arrange counselling by conference call using Fuze or Skype.

Supervision & training
My core training is in humanistic psychology and I endeavour to provide a non-threatening and safe space for supervisees to explore fully their relationships both with their clients but also with me as supervisor.View supervision profile
