About me

About me

Hello, I'm Sally, welcome. I am a qualified Person-Centred Psychotherapist/Counsellor registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and work with adults (18+). I have worked for different counselling services. For the last five years I have worked for SAIL and more recently for SHARE and with students at the University of Sheffield Counselling Service.

My work is supported through professional development and regular supervision.

My approach

My main aim is to journey with you as you explore perhaps your past life or the anxieties, panic, relationship issues, depression or feelings of helplessness that may be preventing you from feeling in control of your everyday life. It is to provide a safe space for you to feel comfortable and secure as you learn to understand yourself through the counselling relationship.

My way of working is founded on Carl Rogers' approach and belief that we all have the inner potential to heal and grow to make the most of our lives if we experience a trusting and supportive counselling relationship.

How counselling can help

The counselling relationship can help you to deal with issues which can be complex and deep-seated. You may wonder if your issues are valid but counselling can help you to understand yourself whether through short term work or longer term. It's about having the freedom to say what you want to say and and perhaps to explore what this feels like without judgement. It can help you feel more in control and begin to raise self-esteem and your confidence in the decisions that you make.

This will be your time and I will be committed to working with you.

What to expect in your first session

Having arranged when and where to meet the main thing is to come along, perhaps have a cuppa and find out whether you feel we could work together. You might want to think about what you want to talk about or come along with no plan and just share what has led you to find a counsellor.

Where and when I work

I work from the Matlock Therapy Centre which is 5 minutes walk from Matlock train station. There is street parking around the centre.
