I'm Sally Davies, a BACP accredited counsellor, and 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 therapy – 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 am particularly interested in issues of identity with a focus on what your place in the world means to you now and on what embracing change might mean.
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 a trainee at The Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis.
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 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. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
An initial assessment of 50 minutes is £50.
Should we decide at or following this meeting to continue with regular counselling a suitable weekly fee will be discussed and agreed on at that time.
Open ended or a set number of sessions can be worked to.
