Sarah Francis, MBACP, Dip Couns.
So glad you are reaching out, perhaps a little unsure about who can help? Gently I will nurture a relationship with you built on safety, where you feel accepted and challenged to grow in new and meaningful ways.
It is my privildge to walk with you through your fears, challenges, and hurts, and help you experience healing and restoration. I see therapy as an opportunity to help diminish pain and suffering, cope with the challenges of life and experience increased peace, meaning, acceptance & aliveness.
By using deep relational and evidence based practice, together with affective neuroscience, I aim to support your innate drive to health and flourishing.

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.
