About me

Hello, I am Sally Davies and I run Chiltern Therapy which has private counselling rooms in Amersham.

I offer face to face sessions, online sessions and telephone counselling. My private practice rooms are large and airy and I have a Covid policy in place to ensure the safety of all my clients.

Suffering from emotional or psychological difficulties can feel overwhelming and is often debilitating. Life can be complicated and cruel and can feel hopeless, confusing and beyond control. There are times when life can just become too much and the smallest things can get to you.

You don't have to struggle alone. Through counselling I can offer you the space and time where we can explore and process your feelings and emotions, anxieties and difficulties together, enabling you to better understand yourself, your current situation or relationship, and build more self-awareness and confidence to make positive changes to your life and better choices for your future.

I am a genuine, caring and empathic Therapist who offers a warm, relaxed, non-judgemental, confidential space where your feelings and emotions can be safely shared and explored.

Prior to my counselling career I worked in several business environments and I have seen first-hand the complexities of working relationships and workplace stress and the negative impact this has on individuals. I have worked with clients who have experienced redundancy, stress and bullying in the workplace and the impact that it has on their personal life.

I provide a holistic and humanistic approach to Therapy and wholeheartedly believe that compassion, understanding and trust are vital components for developing a therapeutic counselling relationship.

In addition to my Private Counselling Practice, I am the Therapeutic Service Lead for a local branch of a National Charity where I have clinical experience of working with both male and female victims of sexual assault and abuse. I have supported clients with presenting issues including childhood trauma, domestic and sexual violence, depression, loss and anxiety.  In this role I also train, mentor and support volunteer counsellors.

As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I adhere to their ethical framework for good practice and I attend regular clinical supervision as well as furthering my professional development by attending regular training and workshops to inform and broaden my practice.

How I Work

I work with children, young people and adults both in schools and within my private practice and my area of work includes emotional difficulties, sexual, emotional and physical abuse, trauma, substance misuse, self-harm, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, bereavement, loss, PTSD, social and general anxiety, low self-esteem, bullying and depression.

I facilitate client change, empowerment and goal attainment by working from a Person-Centred base and drawing on several other theoretical approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis and the Trauma Informed Practice Model.

I believe all individuals are unique and therefore I shape and tailor the sessions to suit client’s needs using the skills and techniques that are most effective for you.

Why Counselling?

I understand the prospect of counselling can seem daunting, however talking to a counsellor is the first step towards change. Counselling offers a means to greater personal understanding, acceptance and potential ways forward. Developing personal insight and better understanding can change the way we think about ourselves, the way we experience life and the relationships we have with others.

I am passionate about mental health and well-being and am committed to making a difference to my clients’ lives. I strongly believe that working within a supportive therapeutic relationship can facilitate growth and positive change, leading to an increased feeling of overall wellness and life satisfaction.

Member organisations

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.

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.
