Sally Lomax Psychotherapist/Counsellor MBACP FPC
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, working with adults in Amersham. I offer weekly sessions for both short and open ended periods in a warm, comfortable and confidential environment.
How can counselling help?
I believe that by talking in a safe, empathetic, quiet and non-judgemental space, we can make effective changes in our lives and enhance our well-being, so that life feels less difficult and better understood.
There are times when we all experience emotional and psychological difficulty. We can feel overwhelmed and sometimes life can feel unmanageable, we all feel the need to 'off load'.
I believe that we all have the capacity to change and the opportunity to manage and explore unresolved issues and conflicts with counselling can reduce anxiety and difficulties, leading to experiencing a more fulfilled life.
I work from a 'psychodynamic' perspective which recognises that current difficulties can be linked to earlier life experiences. It is the understanding of the origins of these difficulties that can be helpful as they impact on us in the present.
If you feel that you would like to explore the possibility of counselling or psychotherapy with me, then please telephone or email me and I will contact you to arrange a consultation. An initial consultation takes about 90 minutes and is an opportunity for us to talk together about what might be helpful to you. Ongoing sessions are weekly and are for 50 minutes.
