Sarah Bower MNCS (Acc) Dip Couns. Integritive Counsellor. Children & Adults
Hi, I am Sarah.
I offer professional Counselling for children, teenagers and adults experiencing Anxiety, GAD generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, depression, sadness,anger and other mental health issues from my therapy room named Dewdrop Counselling Service in Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire.
Making it easier for you
I am a friendly approachable person, very eager to make the counselling process easier for you or your family member by being accepting, relaxed and welcoming so please don't be afraid to make contact to ask me any questions.
I appreciate how difficult it is when you just don't feel ok, are feeling anxious, sometimes you know what is causing your problems other times you don't. At every point in our lives we encounter new barriers and anxieties that we can find difficult, wether its work, health, marriage, children, parents, or bereavement but you don’t have to suffer this alone. Wether you are male, female young or mature there are issues that arise during your life that are not easy to cope with but this is when a counsellor can help you most. I understand its really difficult to seek help when we need it most but its ok to not be ok, and there is always someone to turn too. I can offer you a safe secure non judgmental environment to discover what it is you are looking for.
How I work
I work in an integrative way which means I can offer a variety of modalities to work with often adjusting my approach to suit your needs as an individual or personal preferences for example Person Centred, CBT or Transaction Analysis.
Counselling is a unique relationship built on trust and confidentiality so I ensure you my work is private and discreet.
I value genuine communication which reflects in my work, ensuring you feel comfortable to explore any issues you may like to.
My aim is to dismiss myths about counselling and who it is for because it is for any man, woman or child that would benefit from a therapeutic relationship, using that unique space to improves their lives by exploring, reflecting and learning.
If you would like to call me with any questions at all please do, or visit my webpage http://dewdropcounselling for more information about counselling or me.
