Sarah A Taylor BSc (Hons), Registered MBACP (Accred)
When experiencing relationship issues, anxiety, depression, stress or family issues it is quite natural to feel emotionally isolated and can effect our ability to cope. As a BACP Accredited and Registered Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist, I will actively listen and help you explore areas in your life that are troubling you.
At the heart of my therapeutic approach is our relationship and hope. Within a calm and confidential environment, collaboratively our relationship will be established over time and will be built on honesty, trust, genuineness and mutuality. I offer the chance for clients to be heard and not be judged. I will be alongside you to discuss and explore problems to help you, the client, to overcome them.
My therapy room is conveniently located in the centre of Nottingham, next to the Castle on Friar Lane and just a short walk from the Market Square.
Training, qualifications & experience
To become a Counsellor, I trained for three years at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (affiliated with Coventry University) in Nottingham and I have a BSc (Hons) degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), which means I work in accordance with a strict ethical code, have regular supervision and attend a number of continual professional development workshops each year to enhance and develop my clinical practice.
Together with three other colleagues, I set up Nottingham Counsellors Group, a not for profit group providing training for therapists in Nottingham.
I am also Counselling Team Manger for mharp.co.uk - a new initiative providing resources for employers to support their employees with work related stress.

For a 60 minute counselling session I charge £45.
A concessionary price of £40.00 is offered to all students.
Whilst training for my Diploma in Supervision, I offer supervision at the rate of £37 per hour.
A requirement of my professional training was that I undertook personal therapy myself. Over three years I explored my past and present ways of relating to others. I have confronted and explored areas of my past that have been painful. This has given me increased self awareness and insight.
I have experience of working with individuals of all ages and now specialise in adults. I appreciate it is sometimes difficult to name and categorise a problem and that sometimes problems overlap several areas. The areas of counselling I deal with listed above is purely a guide and does not include everything that I may be able to help you with.
Appointments are available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Please note that in order to gain access to my therapy room a flight of stairs needs to be negotiated.
On street parking is generally available and there are fee paying car parks nearby.

Supervision & training
Supervision is a collaborative endeavour built on safety, freedom, honesty, empowerment, challenge, ethical boundaries and joy. Of course I could mention much more but when injected with elements of creativity and passion, what have we got? A supervisory relationship that helps you, the practitioner, to attend to your client, yourself and the wider system with curiosity and insight.
