Sandra Powell MBACP BA(Hons) Integrative Transpersonal Counsellor
I am a caring, compassionate person whose motivation and zeal is energised by helping others reach their potential and ultimately fulfil their destiny. I empathetically seek to support others experiencing life’s challenges and my passion is for them to become fully operative and wholly restored. In order to equip myself to carry out this mission, I have worked voluntarily with charities and in employment for over 20 years. I pursued a career in counselling and also attained a BA (Hons) in Counselling. I am an integrative counsellor and well trained in areas such as CBT, PCT, Pyschodynamic, Gestalt, Narrative and various other schools of therapy.
I work with individuals, couples and young adults. Areas of counselling include working with:
- relationship issues
- self esteem/confidence issues
- and self-harming amongst other life challenges.
I have continued with Supervision and CPD’s to keep abreast of therapeutic and educational practices/policy or changes.
My BSc (Open) degree and previous business and employment experience comprised of diverse studies, vocations, management of staff and included financial management. I have collectively pioneered and run a successful accredited IT Centre and worked for the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust, Halifax, East Berkshire and Richmond College. My experience has been invaluable for life-coaching individuals and mentoring young adults.
