Hi I'm Sally.
The first step to look for a counsellor can be quite daunting and can generate a great deal of anxiety.
I want to assure you that these feelings are quite natural.
Taking the first step is the hardest part :
I work with both adults and young people, couples and provide both short and long term therapy.
I am a very warm and caring person and I believe that the most important and valuable aspect of counselling is the therapeutic relationship.
I offer an empathic, warm and non-judgemental environment to help create a trusting relationship that will provide a safe space in which you can feel accepted and understood.
I will help you to understand why you feel the way you do.
I will give you time to focus on yourself and discuss any difficulties you are encountering.
I am willing to support you for however long you need, this maybe for a matter of weeks or longer until you are ready to move forward.
I will work hand-in-hand with you to ensure that the service I provide is what you are looking for and need.
No one can change the past but looking at a situation in a different light can help you to move forward.
I have flexible appointment times which includes early evening and Saturday morning appointments to suit individual needs.
Finally I am an experienced counsellor based in Tamworth, close to junctions 9,10 and 11 of the M42.

I am a member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), I am also on the BACP Voluntary register.
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.

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).
