Sally-Anne Douglass, FdSc, Registered Member MBACP
Hello, I offer professional therapy for those experiencing difficult issues and/or challenging times. I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor. I am passionate about counselling and the positive opportunities it can offer. I am here to walk alongside you, as we explore issues together that are very important to you.
Here's some of the comments I've had from clients whom I counselled 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."
"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!"
Life can be difficult; there may be times in your life 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 experience. 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 work with people from all over the Newbury and North Hampshire area.
I am married with two children.
Through my counselling services, I am committed to offering you a non-judgemental and honest environment where you can explore your issues and concerns in confidence.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their code of Ethics and Practice.
Some people are not able to meet for face-to-face counselling due to their location or other restrictions. I do offer Skype counselling for certain issues, however it is not for everyone, if you would like more information please do give me a call.

I believe we are all unique, and the way you experience life is unique to you. It would be my privilege to work with you to help you find a clearer way forward. It’s my aim to ensure that our work together meets your individual needs.
The counselling rooms are located close to public transport, and there is off-road parking.
