Sarah Marshall Reg.BACP Dip. Psychotherapeutic.Couns. Dip. Clinical Supervision
My name is Sarah. I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and registered member of the BACP.
For many reasons, at times in our live's, we may find ourselves experiencing difficulties which can get in the way of our functioning in everyday life and relationships. For instance, we may experience depression and anxiety or notice changes as a result of trauma.
Professional counselling offers a safe, non-judgmental space to explore our experiences. It can empower you to obtain new insight and establish a deeper understanding of self. It may also offer empowerment to change or enable a sense of acceptance.
I offer a professional, one-to-one counselling service, working in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework. This means, that I will work in accordance with the trust you have entrusted in me, in addition to keeping my training current and up to date. I will offer an assessment, to ensure that I am working within my level of proficiency and to ensure that I am able to meet your needs.
I work with integrity, within strong Professional boundaries. For me, it is so important to work within a robust and safe ethical framework, honouring your privacy and autonomy. This, helping to create a sense of trust whilst adding a richness to our therapeutic relationship.
As part of the therapeutic process, I will work alongside you to create a safe containing space, which I will firmly hold for your therapeutic journey, offering encouragement and empowerment, whilst being responsive to your changing needs.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
