Sarah Jones MBACP (Accred)
My counselling and psychotherapy practice is based within the High Peak area of New Mills. I offer therapy services to people in the local and wider community, within easy reach of Glossop, Buxton, Stockport and the surrounding areas
Talking therapies are sought for a variety of reasons: long-standing emotional difficulties, low self-esteem, anger, work stress, relationship problems, separation or divorce, sexuality or identity issues, isolation, inner emptiness, a sense of futility or meaninglessness, troubled thoughts, difficult feelings and behaviour or bodily symptoms.
These may all be signs that we have tried to deal with problems by putting them out of our minds. Often events in our early years influence our current feelings and choices.
Psychodynamic therapy stresses the importance of the unconscious and past experience in shaping current behaviour and I offer a safe and confidential environment in which to talk, think and understand these experiences and make sense of how they arise and continue to affect us.
