About me

Hi, I'm Sally. Sometimes we can reach a point in our lives where problems seem to be stopping us moving forward and often those closest to us are the hardest people to talk to.

I am a warm and empathic professionally qualified counsellor. I am also a professional member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and work within their ethical framework for good practice.

I enjoy working with people from different age groups, backgrounds and cultures and have a genuine interest in people.

I offer counselling in a safe and confidential environment where I can help you explore your thoughts and feelings to gain understanding and to help you move forward in a positive way.

As a Relational Integrative Counsellor I take an holistic approach - where we not only look at the presenting problems but also explore your past and present and your future hopes.  I will help you to develop a true understanding of your difficulties and how to move forward. Using an integrative approach means bringing together compatible elements from CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), person-centred and relational psychodynamic approaches, tailoring this to each individual's needs. Counselling is about being truly listened to in a non-judgmental way but can also be creative and fun. Counselling is a collaborative process between client and counsellor, not a programme dictated by me. We go at a pace that suits you and the number of sessions varies.

You may or may not be familiar with counselling so  initially we have a session to talk through the counselling process and for you to start to share the issues that are concerning you. If you feel that I am the right person to help you then we will work together to set some goals which we review regularly as the sessions progress.
