Hello, I'm Sally, a qualified and registered counsellor (MBACP) working from a person-centred underpinning. I believe and honour that each of my clients are experts of their own experiences, all unique, tender and personal to them. Equally I completely understand that deciding to go to counselling can come at a time in your life when you have never felt more disconnected from yourself or those around you and the mere fact of trying to find a counsellor may feel completely overwhelming right now. It's OK to not feel OK and not know what to do, like all hope is gone.
Life can be beautiful and amazing and at other times it can pull the rug right from under your feet, with completely no warning. Presenting us with situations that trigger pain, overwhelming anxiety and sometimes a feeling of pure desperation and it can feel as if we are completely alone with how we feel.
Counselling offers you a confidential and non-judgemental space to unpack and repack your story. An opportunity to just talk about exactly how you feel (even if you're not quite sure yet) to someone who is trained and experienced in listening and in providing professional psychological support. A space to replant, nurture and grow your hope.

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

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).
