Thank you for taking the time to look at my page, my name is Sarah and I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor.
Integrative means, I can draw from different theories and techniques to support you and tailor the work to your specific needs.
Life is not always easy, and at times we may find ourselves feeling anxious, depressed, stressed and generally unhappy with ourselves or our current situation.
These feelings can become so overwhelming that we may feel unable to talk to our family or friends.
I understand, that if you have never had counselling before it can seem really daunting. My aim is to make you feel comfortable and to show you that it need not be scary. It's a chance for you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe environment.
I am down to earth and my work is always respectful, non-judgemental and confidential.
I am able to offer short term therapy or open-ended therapy. I will be guided by what best works for you.
I offer a free twenty minute telephone session. This gives you the opportunity to get to know me and how I work.

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.
