About me

Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile.

Seeking counselling may feel daunting, but it can be the first step to positive change. I am here to guide you through that change process at a pace that suits you. My name is Sally Brice and I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the BACP,  working in Wickford, Essex.

I provide a space for reflection, to allow you to work out what you want from your life and how to get the most out of it.

Modern life can feel overwhelming at times, our sessions can provide you with a calm place to explore your emotions and understand yourself better.  We are all unique human beings and sometimes life, work and our relationships, can distract us from who we really are.  I will guide you, to bring you back to you.

If you are ready to make changes in your life,  I am ready to listen and support you on your journey.

I really appreciate this is a brave first step and I look forward to hearing from you.

My Service

I am a person centred counsellor, which means there is a humanistic approach to my work with my clients. Person-centred counselling was founded by Carl Rogers who believed that, given the right conditions, a person can reach their full potential and become their true self. I also incorporate Psychodynamic and CBT into my work. I believe that our past experiences can effect our present life situation and the Psychodynamic approach can take us back into the past to unlock the present. CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) can be more goal led and helps us explore thought patterns and challenging our old beliefs and habits, it can be particularly helpful for clients who may be suffering with anxiety or depression.

My Availability

I currently offer some weekdays and most evenings, Monday to Friday and I also offer Saturday mornings. Please note, specific sessions are subject to availability and can be discussed when you first make contact.

Appointments are at the same time each week, unless otherwise agreed. Due to the current COVID restrictions, I am offering telephone or online sessions via Zoom. When face to face working is possible again we can meet in my counselling room in Wickford, Essex. However, if you would prefer online or telephone counselling, please let me know.

I offer a free (no obligation) 30 minute assessment session where we can get to know each other and see if I am the right counsellor for you.

Member organisations

BACP

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
