Sara Clee MBACP (accred). Helping adults, and young people.
If you are reading this it probably means you are thinking about seeking help. I understand that this is a big step.
I work with clients experiencing a range of emotional difficulties such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, loneliness, bereavement and low self-esteem. I will work with you in a safe setting where you can feel your concerns will be heard with compassion and understanding. Talking through these difficulties can help to alleviate anxiety and depression and encourage feelings of hope and self-worth.
Some of you may be parents wondering how you can find some help for your son or daughter. I realise it can be hard to think of your child confiding in someone you don't know. My experience in this area of work means I am sensitive to the needs of the young person, as well as the anxiety of the parent. It is important for the young person to know that they, and not their parents, are the client, however I am happy to meet initially with both parents and the young person.
It can be daunting to make that initial contact, and you may feel anxious about talking to someone you do not know. It is important for you to feel you can meet me and then decide if you wish to start counselling after that.
As a qualified counsellor I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and practise within nationally recognised ethical guidelines. I can offer both short and long term counselling.
I provide weekly 50 minute sessions which are confidential. I work in the centre of Stroud, close to a car park where the parking is 80p for 1 hour.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling. I have also had post diploma training in Couples Counselling and Counselling Teenagers.
I worked as a short term counsellor at Gloucestershire University, where I counselled students from a wide age range.
Currently I work as a schools' counsellor, working with adolescents. I have had several years' experience with one of the largest providers of counselling services in the county.
