Sally-Anne Moxon, Grad Dip & MA Counselling, BACP Reg Sen Accred Counsellor
I am a Registered Senior Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), my counselling practice meets their professional standards for a competent, ethical and independent practitioner and as such I am bound by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
Building on my experience of business management, I completed my formal counselling qualifications in 2002, culminating in: MA Counselling at the University of Leeds. I have 20 years of professional, full-time experience of providing counselling and supervision in a variety of organisations and settings; NHS, Further and Higher Education, NSPCC and private practice.
Counselling is a talking therapy and my aim is that your engagement in counselling with me will facilitate your exploration the challenges you are currently experiencing and identify ways in which they might be overcome. We will work together to consider all aspects of your difficulties with a view to you being able to replace unhelpful thought patterns and processes with more positive and appropriate ones. All of which I believe offers you the opportunity to discover a new and more satisfying way of being in your life in general
As an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor my approach to our work is tailored to your needs. To this end I draw upon ideas from the fields of; Relational, Client Centred, Solution Focused and CBT approaches.
I work in a practical, straightforward and supportive way. I don’t judge and I don’t use “psycho-jargon”. I explain things openly and honestly supporting you as you gain a clearer understanding of your world and how you might make changes that fit well for you. We will work together to explore your options and identify those most effective and appropriate for your current situation.
Your counselling process is based upon our guided discussions, which explore your difficulties and the ways in which they impact upon you. We will consider changes you would like to make, how they might be implemented to enable you manage your life in a more meaningful and fulfilling way.
