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 and Supervisor with 11 years experience of working within the mental health sector as a one to one therapist and a Counselling Service Manager in an agency setting, providing a dependable, trusted and award winning placement for local counselling students.

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 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 behavioural and lifestyle choices in the present and from this 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, co dependency 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 800 counselling hours.

Member organisations

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.
