Sally Storr, MA (Counselling), BSc (Hons) Psychology, MBACP
Are you looking for someone to listen to you and to support you through a difficult period or event in your life?
Over the past 20 years I have learned to manage my own anxiety by experimenting with different techniques. My approach to helping you is to explore what is going on in your life and support 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 behavioural experiments to see what works for you. I follow your lead in exploring possibilities and new ways of living with you as a person-centred counsellor.
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 draw on different approaches as appropriate to your problems and the situation.

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.

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, it depending on the individual and on the situation.
