Sarah Dean FdSc MBACP
We can all find life hard at times. It can throw up difficulties that feel overwhelming and out of our control. I support adults and teenagers through challenging times and help them to initiate change and restore balance in their lives.
When we experience distress, sadness, loneliness, anxiety or depressed mood, it can feel difficult to bear and leave us feeling powerless. Counselling means that you need not face these issues alone; that you can feel safe and supported.
Combining CBT and a deeper talking therapy, I can help you to have a greater understanding of yourself, your situation and your choices. I am here to help you make sense of the issues you are facing and increase your awareness of the ways in which you can regain power and control over your life.
My sessions offer a warm, confidential, safe space for you to explore your concerns and help to increase your confidence and resilience.
I work with a range of issues including:
Low self esteem
Emotional and Sexual abuse
Not attending school
I am passionate about the power that counselling has to change people's lives for the better.
