About me


I know that life can be difficult; there may be times when you could benefit from talking to a professional counsellor. Together we can explore and make sense of issues that might be stopping you from living more fully.

I understand that even thinking about seeking counselling for some people is a daunting task. That is why I work hard to ensure that the environment in which our counselling sessions take place is somewhere you feel safe, comfortable and reassured.

I offer professional therapy for those experiencing difficult issues and/or challenging times. I am a fully qualified BACP Accredited Counsellor, and have been supporting people for over 17 years. I am passionate about counselling and the positive opportunities for change it can offer. I am here to walk alongside you as we explore issues together that are very important to you.

These are some of the comments I've had from clients whom I have worked with, which may be helpful for you to hear:

"Having counselling with Sally-Anne meant I had someone I could say anything to, not holding back and having help to sort through all of the issues I've had. I've changed and grown and now feel ready to face the world." 'Testimonial by A.M'.

"I never thought counselling would help me address so many aspects of my life - my experience of counselling with Sally-Anne has helped me so much!" 'Testimonial by H.H'.

I am committed to offering you a safe, non-judgemental and honest environment where you can explore your issues and concerns in confidence.

I have worked successfully for many years with people online all across the country and internationally. I offer online counselling which has been proven to be easy to use, safe, reliable and a really effective way of us holding our sessions together. This online way of meeting allows you flexibility and freedom in arranging times for our sessions. If you would like more information please do give me a call.

I am a fully accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their Ethical Framework.

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, sex/porn addiction, depression, family issues or have others concerns, I am here to help you find a clearer way forward.

Feel free to call me for a chat about the therapy services I offer, there is no charge for an initial enquiry.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
