Sally Stutz Reg MBACP Dip Couns

I am a qualified integrative therapeutic counsellor and registered member of the BACP with many years experience of responding to and caring for those who are ill or in need in previous professional roles both within the NHS and in a pastoral context.
There are times during life’s journey when situations and events overwhelm us and it is difficult to navigate a way through them. Our usual coping strategies may no longer be sufficient to deal with our difficulties and, despite the support of those close to us, we can no longer: ‘see the wood for the trees’. It is at times such as these that the caring support of a qualified counsellor can assist you to move forward by sensitively exploring your difficulties with you and empowering you to view them from a different perspective. I would be honoured to be that counsellor and travel with you at such a challenging part of your journey through life, should you wish to contact me.
I have a gentle empathetic demeanour and am perceptive of a person’s state of mind, which enables me to meet people where they are in a crisis. My practice utilises different therapeutic techniques tailored for specific client requirements. Upon the bed-rock of the person-centred approach, I employ cognitive behavioural therapy to explore and challenge unhelpful thought processes and behaviour. I use the concepts from transactional analysis to illuminate relationship interactions and past events which may have generated them. I utilise various models of loss to explore painful life events, such as a death or the end of a significant relationship or role. I can offer solution focused brief therapies where this is beneficial and Emotional Freedom Techniques where this is desired.
Experience in working with those who are approaching the end of their lives, has equipped me to support both the terminally ill and their loved ones at critical moments. I am sensitively able to explore difficult questions about their mortality and any other end of life concerns which arise, including spiritual and existential perspectives. I am comfortable using creative techniques to aid any process of exploration as required.
