Sarah Metianu MBACP Registered Counsellor
There are many reasons you might have for coming for counselling; whatever yours are, I hope to offer you the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental, safe and supportive setting. I've had counselling myself at difficult times in my life and so appreciate its value and the importance of finding the right counsellor for you.
My role as a counsellor is to walk alongside you as you begin to understand and come to terms with all aspects of your life, uncover your potential and find what is of purpose, meaning and value to you. Counselling can help you to manage current situations and look at new ways of coping. It can also give insight, understanding, self-acceptance and a new perspective on your past life experiences.
My approach is integrative - this means I work within a variety of therapeutic approaches, allowing me to draw on the elements that I feel will work best for you. Counselling is a collaborative process and my aim is to work with you so that you get the most out of our time together.
I have experience of working with adults facing a number of difficulties and concerns, and offer both short or long-term counselling.
I offer a FREE 30-minute face-to-face meeting in my counselling room at 21, St Cuthbert's Street in the centre of Bedford. This is to see how it might feel for us to work together, for you to ask any questions you may have, and to explore your hopes for therapy. Please contact me if you would like to arrange this.
