Sarah Atterbury MSc Registered UKCP
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I offer private and confidential counselling on both a short term and long term basis to both children and adults. I hold a current enhanced DBS certificate and am fully insured.
There are many reasons why someone such as yourself might seek counselling. You may be struggling with anxiety, panic or depression, have suffered a bereavement or loss or maybe your currently having relationship or family difficulties. Perhaps you are feeling lost or stuck and are unsure of how to move forward. I offer counselling for a wide range of issues and sessions are tailored to meet the needs of each individual.
I offer a warm, safe, confidential space for you talk through and explore what is troubling you. I encourage you to explore your difficulties at a pace that suits you. I have an Integrative approach to counselling and work with the belief that our feelings, motives and decisions in the present day are influenced by our past experiences. I believe that by reflecting on patterns and relationships in your life and through increased self-awareness we can find ways to work through issues and facilitate change.
I appreciate that making the first step of contacting a counsellor can feel daunting, I will do my best to put you at ease and address any concerns or questions you may have. Why not make that first step and call me for a free telephone consultation.

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.
