Sara Bevins MBACP(Accred)
My name is Sara and I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor (MBACP Accred:) based in Church Crookham, who has worked in Private Practice since 2006. I have also worked with a Rape and Sexual Abuse agency as a counsellor, from 2005 to 2016. I have also worked as a school counsellor at a senior school for girls aged 11-18 years of age. I am also working within a doctors surgery.
I believe that all people have the resources within to improve the way they experience their lives, but sometimes it is hard to access this when we are feeling overwhelmed with life's challenges. At times like this counselling can provide the professional facilitation, support and guidance that is needed to reach their full potential.
I have worked with many different and interesting clients with a variety of issues over the years, each bringing their own particular needs and concerns. My role has been to offer them the opportunity to work with me to find a way of dealing with their issues and developing a way forward that is beneficial to them.
I offer open ended counselling for individuals either adults or adolescents.Whilst my approach is Integrative my practice is informed by many different models, of which I draw upon and tailor a very unique individual approach to the work with my clients. I offer a safe secure environment for my clients to explore their individual personal issues in a confidential, non-judgemental way.
I do this in a supportive way through facilitation and exploration of theoretical knowledge, understanding of life events and genuine empathy.
Counselling can at times be emotionally challenging but given the professional supportive space, opportunity and desire to improve the way you want to feel about what ever is occurring in your life, counselling is very effective.
As a counsellor I ensure that I work ethically and safely, so ensuring the best service I can give to my client.
