Sally Storr, MA (Counselling), BSc (Hons) Psychology, MBACP, MBPS
Are you looking for someone to support you through a difficult period or event in your life?
I am an anxious person. Over the past 20 years I have learned to manage my anxiety by experimenting with different techniques. My approach to helping you is to explore what is going on in your life and help you to change your behaviour and lifestyle in order to become the person you really want to be. I believe in a holistic approach, meaning that if you look after your body your mind will feel better too. I will support you in moving forward in whichever direction you need to.
I use relaxation techniques, guided meditation, reframing negative into positive thought patterns, thinking about how your past makes you the person you are, exploring what you really want from life and trying experiments to see what works for you. I follow your lead in exploring possibilities with you as a person-centred counsellor.
I am a qualified Pilates teacher and psychotherapist. If you feel anxiety is ruining your life, we will explore ways to reduce this significantly, developing new more positive habits and facing challenges with confidence and courage. I follow your lead in exploring possibilities with you as an integrative counsellor (that means I drawn on different approaches as appropriate to the problems and the situation).

I work from an integrative approach. That means I adapt my counselling according to the needs of the client. I am trained as a person-centred counsellor, but also draw from my knowledge of many different approaches, such as mindfulness and relaxation, cognitive-behavioural, Narrative Therapy, Gestalt and others. I believe that everyone is an individual, but that we often have problems in common. I listen closely to an individual problem and work collaboratively with each client, usually for a short number of sessions (3-6).
