Sarah Mortimer (MBACP) - Park Lane Therapy
Park Lane Therapy is a local, independent counselling service based in Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire. Within easy reach of Blackpool and the Fylde Coast, Preston and Lancaster.
It is run by myself, Sarah Mortimer, a qualified and BACP registered Therapist. I specialise in working with adults (aged 16 and above) experiencing anxiety; low mood and depression; and attachment/relationship issues and many more.
I provide an easy to access, safe and confidential service, and also offer Skype and telephone counselling services for those clients further afield from the areas named above.
I primarily offer person centred counselling, a talking therapy based on the assumption that clients should have a non judgmental, accepting relationship with the therapist. Person centred counselling appeals to many, as it is client led, and enables you to develop the inner resource to address negative patterns of thinking, and to bring about growth and change.
Person centered counselling has been proven to be especially effective in the treatment of mild to moderate depression and anxiety in particular.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold an Advanced Diploma (BACP Accred.) and Honours Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and am currently completing a Masters Degree in Psychology (BPS Accred.) - due to complete in the Summer of 2019.
With a focus on the person centred approach, I have worked as a Therapist in a number of third sector organisations, as well as NHS settings.
I am committed to ongoing training and personal development, as well as regular attendance at research and practice conferences. I am also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and a student member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Initial assessment over the telephone - free of charge.
- My current fee for a one hour face to face session is £45.00
- Rates for telephone and Skype sessions start from £30.00 per one hour session
- Discounted rates available for students and unemployed
As well as our contact time, this fee includes pre and post session preparation, professional indemnity and public liability insurance, as well as the cost of professional supervision.
Anyone who is willing to accept help to look at themselves and explore their issues honestly and attentively can benefit from counselling. If you haven't accessed or experienced counselling before, the following link provides some useful information: https://www.bacp.co.uk/about-therapy/we-can-help/
Please also feel free to get in touch should you wish to explore therapy further. I understand that the variety of counsellors and types of therapy can feel vast and confusing, so I am more than happy to discuss counselling and what it is I offer over the telephone, or via email, before you make your decision on whether to proceed with an initial assessment with me, or access therapy elsewhere.
Whatever it is you're going through, I hope you manage to access the right help you need at this time.
