Sarah Andrews MBACP, Registered Dip.Psych.Couns
Counselling therapy is dedicated time, set aside by you and the therapist, to think about your needs and what has brought you to therapy. It might involve thinking about life events, both past and present. It can empower you by helping you to understand yourself better. It can help you to re-evaluate things and turn perceived problems into personal growth. Sometimes an individual may need support through a difficult time in their life by discussing coping strategies, other people might want to facilitate some change. I will work with you to identify your particular needs. Whatever you want to achieve, I can offer a safe and confidential environment for you to discuss your thoughts, feelings & behaviours. Looking after you is my priority. As well as working in private practice I also have agency experience, have worked in a local secondary school and I am an approved specialist counsellor for working with victims of crime.
As individuals we are different and have different needs. As an Integrative therapist I am able to draw on more than one type of approach in order to work in the best interests of my clients. I draw on elements of the following therapies to inform my work:
Person Centred Approach
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and
I never fail to be amazed and inspired by the human condition and what makes us think and act the way we do. My goal as a therapist is to help the individual find their own clarity, seek their own path. My role is to walk beside my client along this, sometimes short, sometimes long journey. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
