Sandra Singer, Child & Adolescent Counsellor / Family Consultant
CORONAVIRUS: I understand that anxiety from the pandemic and stress from self-isolation can impact mental well-being and family harmony.
Support is now available 7 days per week, and until further notice all sessions are online.
I offer a holistic, creative support and practical solutions to children, young people and their parents. My approach aims to address a wide range of social and emotional issues including:
- Dealing with sudden events and change (eg. coronavirus pandemic)
- Enhance emotional resilience
- Manage stress & anxiety
- Increase self-confidence
- Improve communication
- Strengthen family relationships
Sessions for children & young people help them to manage emotional distress and anxiety, and achieve greater happiness and self-confidence so they can express their needs in a calm way.
Parent-child sessions provide a supportive space for families to share thoughts and feelings, and enjoy activities that foster greater connection and mutual respect.
Support for parents/ carers enhances understanding of your child’s behaviour, while teaching you easy and effective tools to calm emotional storms and enjoy a happier family life.
School counselling includes individual and group sessions for pupils, parents and staff.
Location: I see clients in my private practice on Telegraph Hill, which is easly accessable from Brockley, New Cross Gate and Nunhead (South-East London), or at schools across London. I also work online!
Please contact me to arrange a free phone consultation to discuss your concerns and to find out how I work.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
