Sarah Pelling zoom /tel Is this You soon? From stress to confident, calmer you ?
Counselling offers a confidential safe space to be heard and explore your stress or dark place which is complicated to explain to those around you. I offer a non-judgemental encouraging presence in this unqiue space, where you can journey to become strong, confident and happy with yourself and gain renewed spirituality or sense of purpose. Work and career choices become clearer, underlying reasons are discovered to release what makes you feel depressed, stressed, anxious or in despair. The burdens of events and others are let go. You may find inner peace, create boundaries in old relationships or build new healthy relationships that offer you self-respect and safety.
My way of working is to focus on you as the expert as a person-centred humanistic counsellor, but I also add aspects of Gestalt, Transactional, psychodynamic and creative ideas to what I offer, as part of my additional training as an Integrative Psychotherapist and trauma, abuse, bereavement, informed specialist.
I am an expereinced knowledgable counsellor therapist', who specialises in the impact of life events shown in our stress, anxiety and depression. This is regardless of what is bothering you. My specialist knowledge and experience is with all gender individuals, who want to find how they can emotionally survive the traumatic effects of domestic violence, rape, assault and all abuse and bullying. My experience in this, is with men, women recently or currently being abused or bullied and adults who were abused when they were children. I am also experienced and specialise in the impact of bearevement on you, in losing a loved one or their long term illness, including dementia conditions, espeically lingering and complicated grief of an indivudal and a pet by bereavement or theft.
I do volunteer sessions for FirstStep which offers counselling for men only who have been abused or raped and for Teamwork which focuses on complex mental health 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.
