Sarah Faulkner - Reach For Solace Counselling & Emotional Support
Life can be challenging, daunting & overwhelming at times and we could all do with some help now and then. I believe with the right support, we can all achieve positive change.
I’m an integrative therapeutic counsellor working with Transactional Analysis, CBT and Gestalt. I can also work creatively with you to bypass cognitive defences and work with your subconscious on a deeper level of exploration and bring about positive change.
I deeply attune to you & respond to your individual needs, shaping my therapeutic approach accordingly. I assist you in the learning of useful coping & self soothing techniques to help you to feel better in present.
I have a wealth of clinical experience having worked in both the public & private sectors and currently work as the lead therapist at 'Reach for Solace'.
At Reach for Solace we offer emotional support, counselling & psychotherapy
in a safe, caring environment with an experienced & qualified therapist to help you find your balance.
Therapy can help build awareness of yourself, help build self esteem, restore balance, enhance your relationships, improve your self image and your confidence.
Therapy can help to understand where your opinions and beliefs came from and how you came to be where you are now.
"If something eases your disappointment or grief, consider it a Solace"
We offer an optional free of charge, confidential & commitment-free telephone conversation with a qualified therapist and your initial face to face counselling/psychotherapy session is half price.
In your initial session you will be able to discuss further what you can expect from therapy, we can find out more about you and what has brought you to us at Reach for Solace.
We provide a discreet service ensuring confidentiality & anonymity. Our service is not signposted as a counselling service ensuring discreet access & egress.
There is an opportunity for you to ask any questions and look at any concerns you may have in relation to coming for counselling in your therapy sessions or during your free telephone call.
Our last appointment we offer is at 8 pm every evening and we offer Sunday appointments as we understand people lead busy lives.
Contact us today to see how we can help or visit our website for more information.
