About me

Hello, my name is Sally - I am a person centred counsellor with many years experience supporting adults, young people and children in various roles, including in schools, community and mental health settings.

I understand how precious the individual support of a warm, accepting person can be when you are struggling, distressed, or perhaps feeling unable to make the changes you want in your life.

When I worked with children and young people experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties, I tried hard to carve out these invaluable moments for the children in my care.

As a counsellor, I feel privileged that I am now able to offer this nurturing relationship to my clients and I look forward to welcoming you to my comfortable counselling room, where I believe I can support you in finding your own way through your current difficulties.

Finding the right person for you may seem a daunting, bewildering process, so why not take the opportunity to come for a free half hour session to see if you feel we could work well together.

I am a warm and approachable counsellor. My aim is to enable you to talk freely and to feel really listened to, encouraged and supported, and even sometimes challenged. As a person centred counsellor, I believe that through developing a genuine, empathic relationship I can support you to explore your thoughts and feelings, thereby empowering you to understand and resolve the difficulties which brought you into counselling.

Depending on your individual needs, I can also integrate aspects of other approaches, such as CBT, into our work.

Further information

I was born in Cornwall and then spent several years away, first as a student in Wales then in London working with young people. In addition to my work in education, I have also used my deep love of reading, and my belief in the therapeutic benefits it can bring, to facilitate shared reading groups in a range of mental health settings.

I was fortunate in bringing up my family back in Cornwall, where the sea is a constant source of pleasure, and I love to swim in it or walk along the coast whenever I can.
