Sally Bild MBACP, UKCP, IGA Individual and Group Psychotherapist
Life can be challenging and there are times when we may need help to navigate our way through it. Often our early experiences in our families don't equip us to manage life as well as we would like. This can cause difficulties in our relationships, both with ourselves and others and can lead us to repeat patterns that are unhelpful and leave us feeling depressed and anxious or stuck and unfulfilled.
Therapy can help us to understand ourselves, to reflect on and make sense of our experiences and to give us the resources to cope with difficult feelings and circumstances. It can help us to improve our relationships and make better decisions. It can also help to build resilience and self-esteem so that we can function better in our work and personal lives.
Having originally trained as a social worker, then as an individual and group psychotherapist, I have had over 20 years experience in the helping professions, including 10 years in an NHS secondary care mental health setting, working with both individuals and groups. I can offer a warm, supportive, non-judgemental space where we can reflect together to try to make sense of what troubles you and to bring about meaningful change.
You can contact me by telephone or email and we can have an initial discussion about what you are looking for. Then, if you want to take it further, we can meet for one or two sessions so that we can both get a sense of whether I am the right therapist for you.
