About me

My name is Sally, and I offer a comfortable, relaxed environment in which clients can explore their thoughts and feelings in confidence without being judged.

I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor with over nine years of working within the mental health sector as a one to one therapist and a counselling co-coordinator in an agency setting.

I am personable, dependable, empathic, supportive and trustworthy. I understand the importance of confidentiality and respect someone else’s perspective.

Over the years most of the client issues I have encountered encompass loss and control in some way, shape or form. Many clients feel out of control, and helpless or in complete despair, and would like to be able to clear a pathway for themselves to work out a more manageable way of living with less anxiety. Many clients just want to be listened to, and for some that is a rare luxury as friends and family often have their own agenda. Regular reviews and goal setting to reflect where a client is, in relation to their therapy journey are part of the therapeutic process and help to build trust and structure.

In therapy we explore the impact the client's past has upon their behavioral and lifestyle choices in the present and we are able to build a picture unraveling blocks and barriers to the client's happiness and clarity of focus. The aim is to simplify the client's world when there is chaos present and focus on perspective and working with options available.

I see clients with a variety of issues, such as anxiety, depression, control and loss.

I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their code of ethical practice.

I am fully covered with Professional Liability Insurance.

I receive regular clinical supervision and attend ongoing CPD courses.

I have over 750 counselling hours.
