Sally-Anne Armitage at Next Chapter Counselling
*Please note, I currently have no spaces for new clients. Will update when situation changes*
Would you like this to be a Happier New Year? Are you struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, panic, depression, loss, abuse or sadness? The vast majority of my clients experience significant progress in their personal goals in as little as 5 sessions :) See the testimonials below, I am a very passionate and effective Person Centred Counsellor.
I aim to provide a very supportive space where you can explore what has happened, or is happening, to help you make sense of your situation and identify ways you can continue forward onto a more positive Next Chapter.
I will not tell you what you should or shouldn't do or what you should or shouldn't think. I will work alongside you to create an atmosphere where you are able to be completely open and honest. We will explore the options together, building a full and clear picture of what is going on for you and making sense of your situation.
Your well-being is of the highest importance to me and you can rely on me to offer you a non judgemental and productive space.
Contacting a counsellor can be frightening or daunting but the outcome can be nothing short of amazing.
Get in touch and let's get started :)
What do clients say about me?
'I don't really know why it has worked, but it has! My life circumstances are exactly the same as when I started but I just don't feel as burdened by everything at all...'
'Sally works miracles'
'My relationship with myself and the people in my life has been transformed'
'Don't worry because it's probably the best thing you'll ever do! I can't put it into words, don't fear the unknown..Just do it if you want to understand yourself and live the life you want'
'Sally is very easy to talk to, I never felt judged. She genuinely cared about my well-being'
'I was so nervous I could hardly speak, yet within half an hour I knew Sally was on my side and she wasn't judging me'
'I have seen a counsellor before and it was an awful experience... I knew, if Sally was the same I would never again see another counsellor. I am really glad I was convinced to give it another go'
'I didn't know what it would be like, I am so glad I decided to do it'
'I have told Sally things I have never told anyone, and I feel so much better for it'

I charge £20 for an initial session which includes an initial assessment and contracting, this usually lasts between 30-50 minutes. This is a no obligation meeting as choosing the right counsellor for you is extremely important, after this session you can decide whether you would like to proceed or discontinue sessions.
I charge £40 for a 50 minute session thereafter. These are generally held on a weekly or two weekly basis and we will review progress at regular intervals (Usually every 5 sessions) Meetings can be arranged around your commitments as much as possible.
