Sandra Cooper BA(Hons) MBACP
Seeing a Counsellor can be a daunting prospect, but in a safe environment and as a Person-Centred Counsellor, I work closely with people’s process based on their feelings and thoughts, respectfully trusting how they see themselves in whatever their predicament might be.
Within this framework of understanding, without judgement or assumption, I support people in self discovery and autonomy. Our relationship empathically supports and enables people to explore and face challenges towards self-healing.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma and BA Hons Degree in Person-Centred Counselling from Metanoia, as well as Certificates in ‘Group Work’ and ‘Working with Children and Families’.
I worked for many years as a Counsellor in the Public Sector with people on Probation, the homeless community, Oxford City Council including the Fire Service and Teachers, and in private practice.
My original specialism was Addiction, but as my experience widened I also worked closely with Psychiatric Services. This background encompassed a wide range, including aspects of mental health which lead me to work with children, couples and groups in therapeutic settings.
After a break, I am presently specialising in historic and recent or current sexual abuse as well as working with any other issues brought to my practice.
My work covers many aspects of mental ill-health, including work issues, depression, anxiety, addiction, visual and auditory hallucinations, bereavement, anger, stress, self-esteem, relationships, abuse of all kinds, and various affects of trauma, including unusual experiences.
