About me

My name is Sarah Lancaster, I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor registered with the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). This is a governing body ensuring we work ethically and are up to date with our professional development.

I have experience with a wide range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, domestic violence etc. Counselling can help you work through these difficult times by providing the time and space to reflect and discuss what’s going on for you.

I am approachable and have a down-to-earth manner, offering an integrative approach meaning I draw on a number of counselling approaches based on your needs.

I have a particular interest and passion in working with younger people from the age of 18 plus. However I feel equally comfortable in working with people from a range of ages and backgrounds.

As a therapist, I believe in focusing on client's strengths and areas of resilience in my work, to help client's improve their wellbeing and quality of life.

I offer Online and Walk and Talk therapy. Take a look at my website to find out more information.

Walk & talk sessions are available at various locations and will be negotiated, depending on where you live.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
