Sarah Burnet BA,Dip IntegCouns MBACP
Feeling low, anxious and upset about your situation? Feeling confused - at a loss and disorientated? Life has it ups and downs and with it, many challenges, and sometimes, in the midst of it all, we need time to talk?
Talking with someone who isn't a family member, can be beneficial and helpful, because exploring situations, however difficult, alongside complicated feelings with a counsellor, enables you to explore freely in a confidential setting, away from friends and family.
I trained as an integrative person centred counsellor, which means, by offering you the right conditions, whereby you feel safe, not judged and valued - you decide what you want to explore. I integrate other counselling techniques, depending on your specific needs, and together, we consider your concerns and objectives in order to reach a better understanding, perspective or perhaps devise better coping strategies that support your situation.
I work in a client centred way, at the client's pace, acknowledging that what you bring is relevant and important and in doing so, I follow your line of enquiry. I support you by clarifying, rephrasing, identifying, and eventually enabling you to internalise the counselling structure, whereby you can offer yourself structured support whenever you need it.
I integrate understanding and techniques from Transactional Analysis, Gestalt Therapy, CBT, Psychodynamic, Focusing and Mindfulness.
I have experience of working with a diverse range of adults and children.
I am a Lecturer and teach counselling.
I offer an initial assessment, providing you with an opportunity to meet me, and to ask me any questions concerning the process.
