Sally Piper MBACP (Registered)
There can be times when life doesn’t feel ‘right’ or we feel weighed down by something. We may lead busy lives and tend to prioritise other’s needs, sometimes losing sight of our own.
We can feel overwhelmed, confused, anxious, lonely, powerless, depressed or unfulfilled and in emotional distress, but we may not wish to ‘burden’ others and perhaps believe we should ‘soldier on’.
Whatever may be impacting you, counselling provides the time and space to prioritise your needs and explore and understand what is going on for you. As a qualified and registered counsellor I offer support to help you find your best way forward, overcome problems and adversities and feel more in control.
I offer a safe, professional, confidential and accepting environment for us to work together, always respecting that you are the expert on yourself. I will regard it as a privilege to be able to accompany you through your process at a pace that is right for you, treating you with compassion and respecting your dignity at all times.
Although this list is not exhaustive, I work with the following:
- Low self-esteem/Low self-confidence
- Low mood
- Postnatal Depression
- Loss and bereavement
- Relationship Difficulties
- Work related issues
- Life changes.
I consider the relationship between us of fundamental importance and will work collaboratively with you. In line with my own values and in accordance with my Professional Body, I regard being trustworthy as a serious ethical commitment.
If you have any questions about my practice or would like to make an appointment, please text, phone, email or visit my website www.sallypipercounselling.com
I will be happy to hear from you and aim to respond within 24 hours, or next working day.
