About me

I'm Sally Davies, a BACP accredited counsellor and am currently undertaking a clinical training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy at The Site For Contemporary Psychoanalysis. I am passionate about the need to spend time getting to know yourself in order to help you make sense of your world and empower you to face making changes. Whatever brings you to analysis – trauma, depression, a feeling that something has not been right for a long time but it never seems to be the right time to face it, anxiety, hopelessness, feeling lost and misunderstood, different from others or just wanting to have a better relationship with yourself – the underlying desire is for change.

By exploring how you relate to yourself and to others, and by looking at past and present experiences, together we can facilitate and welcome change and acceptance in your life.

I work on a weekly and twice weekly basis.

My consulting room is in Carshalton Beeches, SM5 3LB.

I feel that my work as a commercial accountant, third world charity involvement and having lived abroad brings a depth of understanding to my work.

Please note that I currently do not have any evening or weekend appointments.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an accredited member of the BACP and adhere to its ethical framework.

Having worked in voluntary organisations in south London since 2007 I am skilled and experienced in engaging with people of different ages, ethnities and backgrounds, and who have encountered a diversity of life events.

I qualified as a psychodynamic counsellor with Nescot in 2008 and am currently undertaking a clinical training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy at The Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis.

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
