Sarah Reid MBACP
Hello, I am Sarah. I trained to be a counsellor because I wanted to help others as I had previously been helped, so I understand what a big step it is to begin therapy and the importance in finding a counsellor with whom you feel relaxed and can easily talk to.
I will work with you offering a warm, empathic, confidential, safe and non-judgemental environment to explore and understand your feelings. I value honesty and the importance of trust in the relationship. I believe finding your own answers on the journey of self-discovery can be both empowering and life changing.
I am a qualified counsellor and work from a person-centred approach. I have over 30 years experience working in caring professions with children, young people and adults.
My counselling practice is based a few miles from Market Harborough in the beautiful and peaceful Thorpe Langton which is easy to access with plenty of off-road parking.
During the current climate and this time of uncertainty I can offer online or telephone sessions, we can discuss and review as things progress.
To make an appointment please get in touch whichever way is preferable - by email, text or phone call. If I am unable to answer your call immediately leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I endeavour to reply to all calls, texts and emails as soon as possible within 24 hours.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
