Sarah Baker Dip Couns. Reg MBACP
Due to the current situation I am only offering phone or online counselling. When things return to normal we can continue that way or change to face to face sessions. It's a weird world at the moment, we are all having to adapt to a new way of living and it's causing some people to experience fear and anxiety. If you're struggling in any way, reach out for support, if not friends and family then one of the many organisations available.
Sometimes we feel or know that something isn't right, and it can help to talk to someone who will truly listen and won't judge.
Counselling is known as a talking therapy, I have the experience and skills to help you find the words.
I offer short-term and open-ended therapy which is tailored to your needs.
My room is relaxing, comfortable and safe. If appropriate, a home visit can be discussed.
I'd welcome your call, text or email. If I am with a client my phone will be switched off, but if you leave a message I will get back to you as soon as possible. I look forward to meeting you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling but feel all I have experienced and learned has been a lifelong journey to this qualification.
I qualified as a Mental Health Nurse in June 2000 but gave up my registration a few years ago. Although I learnt a lot I wanted to work with the person rather than a diagnosis. That is what counselling has given me.
I work holistically, taking into account all the different parts of who we are. I have an interest in how the body and mind work together and use different tools to connect with this.
All we are and all we can be is inside us, we just need to discover it.
