Sally Richards MBACP (Accred)
I believe therapy to be a beginning, an opportunity for understanding, self-acceptance, personal growth and change. In the fast-paced world where we live, we often do not treat ourselves with the same kindness, compassion and understanding as we treat others. This can often take a toll on how we feel, function and relate to others.
Therapy gives you time for you, to explore what you are feeling and why you are feeling a certain way, this enabling you to understand your needs to move to a more fulfilled and happier way of being.
Therapy can help with easing feelings that you are experiencing in the present but also offer insight into where those feelings originated from, identifying outdated coping strategies and assisting with the self-empowerment to break away from inhibiting patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
I have a particular interest in relationships and how we are in relationships, as this can have a huge impact on our personal wellbeing.
What to expect
Each session is 50 minutes in length and I offer short term counselling, where we define a set amount of sessions or long term, where the counselling offered is ongoing and we work to an end when it feels appropriate to do so.
For couples & relationship counselling, I offer 90 minute sessions as well as 50 minutes.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
