Sarah Jauncey - Individual and Couples Counselling - BACP (Accred)
I am a BACP accredited counsellor with several years experience in both short and long-term work. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental space for individuals and couples.
People come to counselling for many different reasons. It may be that you need support to develop better ways of coping in times of stress, or explore your own ways of behaving and relating to other people. By understanding yourself better you then have more choice in how you lead your life.
Counselling can also help you come to terms with the past and accept the things you can’t change. It can give you the courage and confidence to do some things differently and break out of patterns where you get stuck.
It can also be helpful if you’re feeling a lack of fulfilment, or are looking for clearer direction and meaning in your life. Or perhaps you may want to develop your creativity, explore your spirituality, or simply grow as a person.
Couples counselling is to help you communicate better and explore your difficulties as a couple. As the counsellor I’m there to make sure you’re both properly heard. I’m on both your sides, whatever the outcome, and I don’t judge.
How I work
As an Integrative Counsellor I draw on different models to suit each individual. I work within a Psychodynamic and Humanistic framework and also use elements of Art Therapy and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) when appropriate.
I have considerable experience working short-term for a limited number of sessions, including within the EAP (Employment Support Programme) framework. In this instance the focus is often on problem resolution.
I also have experience in long-term open-ended work.
What you should expect from the initial session
You can contact me either by phone or by email to book an initial assessment session. During this first session we'll discuss the issues that you would like some help with, and how best I can help you. I can also any questions you may have.
It is important that you feel comfortable talking to me, and also that I feel that I'm the right person to help you. If you feel you'd like to come and see me again we would then plan a couple more sessions and take it from there.
Personal Insight Workshops
I also run personal insight workshops with my husband. These workshops are based around our life stories. The Stories We Tell weekends and are open to anyone who is looking for personal or professional development.
Please see the website for more details of all our courses, including the week long residential in Sardinia in September.
“Thank you so very much for one of the most insightful weekends I have ever had.” Miranda McHardy, counsellor.

The initial consultation gives you the opportunity for us to meet and find out more about counselling and discuss any concerns you may have. If you decide to go ahead, we may agree on a set number of sessions or choose to keep it ‘open-ended’.
Sessions take place in a private and comfortable setting and last 50 minutes for individuals and an hour for couples, usually on a weekly basis.
There is free parking on the street, and we’re close to public transport links.
We're the middle house in the row of Victorian semi-detached houses on Perth Road with the name Cairnlea over the front door.
