Sarah Adams Smith Counselling Psychotherapy MBACP
You may be feeling sad, overwhelmed, lost, alone or lonely, confused, numb, bereaved, hopeless, betrayed, heart-broken, angry, afraid, a failure, low self worth, anxiety, depression, disappointment, isolation, panic or struggling with relationship issues, family issues as an individual or couple.
You can be heard, without judgement, in a safe space just for you.
My work is all about you, your heart, mind, body and soul. I work on a wide range of life's challenges, psychological, emotional and relationship issues. This can help resolve current problems and initiate self change of long-standing behavioural patterns. My practice can include using creative tools and working with dreams. Sometimes we look at the past to make sense of the present, freeing up space so the now can be truly lived. My training in the whole body mind experience, and trauma informed therapy, helps me work in an holistic way.
Even if you are afraid or unsure I would encourage you to take the first step on your journey home to self.
‘Many people suffer from the fear of finding oneself alone, and so they don't find themselves at all' - R.May
'You cannot find yourself by going into the past, you find yourself by coming into the present' E.Tolle
Counselling can help us live in the here and now even though we are all affected by the past. Some mis-understand the reason why a therapist asks about their past, not feeling any need to 'go there'. It's about what is coming up for us when we talk about the past, what are we still carrying? This awareness, which becomes finely attuned with regular therapy, is the heart of the matter in helping us live in present. Therapy is about opening your body, mind, heart and spirit, slowly and safely. Coming home to self can enable us to truly live life.

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.
