I would like to welcome you to my page. My name is Sandra and I’m an integrative counsellor. Along with being a member of the BACP and I follow the ethical framework. I am very passionate about helping others. My passion for helping others comes from my own difficult life experiences, which has led to my professional journey in becoming a counsellor.
These experiences together with my professional learning have given me the tools, to relate to others and help them to deal with many issues that can affect our lives. Sometimes things can get too much for us, which can lead to us to becoming stressed and overwhelmed. Consequently, we can withdraw from enjoying life and feel isolated and alone. This can affect our daily functions and all the relationships we have, which makes work and everyday life harder to deal with.
If this is the way you are feeling you have done the hardest part in seeking help. Having someone to talk and listen to you is sometimes all we need. If you are in a dark or stuck place it is my passion to help you come out of it, by helping you connect to feelings and understand yourself better. I will be with you on your journey to becoming self-aware, so you can feel you are not alone in what you are going through.
I offer the safe environment you need to help you process your thoughts and express them. This will be done in a nurturing way, within a confidential setting in a quiet room, with non-judgement, empathy and honesty. This will give the safety you need to help you think and talk, for you to become more conscious of yourself and your feelings.
If you have resonated with what was said above, get in touch with me to arrange an initial assessment. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your self-discovery.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
