Sally Humphries (Lemon Grove Counselling & Therapy)
I practice as a Person-Centred and Humanistic counsellor and have worked with adults, young people and couples for over 17 years and, through my work, I have been privileged to meet many beautiful and unique human beings.
As a counsellor, I believe my greatest strength and gift is my ability to create a meaningful connection and therapeutic relationship with another, and, I feel I have the qualities of self-awareness, genuineness, empathy and an acceptance of others; all of which I consider to be vital to create a therapeutic relationship with someone who is looking for help, with whatever it is that has led them to seek counselling.
I believe, within counselling, the relationship is the therapy and, ultimately, it is the relationship with another human being that heals. As a counsellor, I view myself as a fellow traveller, sharing part of another persons journey through life, for as long as they want me alongside them. I feel both humbled and honoured when someone puts their trust in me, and invites me to walk alongside them for a while, and shares with me with their unique story.
I work within a counselling and training organisation called Lemon Grove Counselling & Therapy, which is run jointly by myself, and fellow counsellor, Marco Centonze. We have come together to set up Lemon Grove because we both believe in the same approach and our aim is to create the peace and tranquility that goes hand in hand with the healing process.
If you would like to meet one of us, we would be pleased to arrange an initial appointment. One of the most important things is to feel comfortable with the person you are working with, so we normally suggest you come for an initial appointment to find out how counselling could help you, to ask any questions you might have and help you decide if Lemon Grove is the right place for you. I can normally offer you an initial appointment within a few days.
