Sally Woodhouse, Adv Dip Couns., MBACP
Is it time for change? Are you struggling with relationships? Maybe you are going through a difficult time at the moment or you have in the past and unresolved feelings are making life challenging now.
I understand that the decision to undertake counselling is a big step which for many takes courage. I offer a private and confidential space where together, we can explore your thoughts and feelings and work towards your desired outcome. I provide you with a warm and gentle therapeutic relationship rooted in theoretical knowledge to facilitate the changes you wish to make. You will be listened to with respect and without judgement.
My aim is to encourage your personal growth through a deeper understanding and acceptance of your thoughts and feelings. Additionally, we might look at strategies for handling situations, relationships or emotions in a more effective way. If you enjoy being creative we can explore using sand tray, art or symbolic work.
I am an Integrative Therapist which means that I have trained in a number of therapeutic models including Transactional Analysis, Person Centred, Gestalt, CBT and EFT. I can therefore tailor our counselling together to suit you and the areas in your life that you would like to change. I have 7 years post qualifying experience (approximately 800 counselling hours completed).
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their Ethical Framework and Guidelines for Good Practice, details of which can be found at www.bacp.co.uk

I offer a free 30 minute session for you to meet me and decide if I am the counsellor for you. It also allows me to assess the issues you want to deal with and decide on the best therapeutic model for us to follow.
Sessions are £30 an hour. I believe that good counselling should be accessible to everyone so I offer a concessionary rate of £25 per session to those who cannot afford £30.
You can contact me by phone on the above number. If you need to leave a message you can be sure that this is only heard by me so your call remains confidential.
Cancellations – Please note that 24 hours notice is required if you wish to cancel a session. If notice is not given the session will be charged at the full rate.
