About me

About me

Hello, I'm Sally, welcome.

I have experience of helping people with anxiety, depression, feelings of helplessness, abuse of different kinds, physical and emotional. My past clients have included people who couldn't make sense of their lives and wanted to explore how to feel in control again. I have also worked with many students. Some were struggling to cope with University life, others had to deal with issues concerning family life that had left them feeling panicky and isolated.

I have experienced clients learning to cope with the past and present finding ways to deal with overwhelming emotions, and begin to face every day with more hope.

How I work

To begin with I will get to know you and the difficulties you face. I will help you to feel that you have a safe place to say anything, without being judged in any way. As you learn to trust me, together we can find ways to understand the causes of those difficulties and how to cope. You will find ways to deal with life, even if you don't think you can, to believe and trust in yourself.

What next?

If you feel I can help you, you can e mail me or leave a message on my mobile. I will get back to you. You could talk on the phone first or come in for an introductory session (£20) or both.

Where and when I work

I work from the Matlock Therapy Centre, which has easy access and is 5 minutes walk from Matlock train station, which has direct links to Derby and Nottingham. Buses (X17) link directly to Chesterfield and Sheffield. There is street parking around the centre.
