Sarah Rodway BA Hons, MBACP
Portishead, North Somerset
Hi, my name is Sarah and I am a qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist working within Bristol and North Somerset.
I have spent many years working with a variety of people, working with everything from a 'sense of feeling lost' to complex concerns or trauma. I hold the relationship between myself and my clients in the highest regard, working uniquely with each individual depending on their concerns. I am approachable and compassionate, providing a safe confidential space to work for as long as the client chooses.
Therapy can be a chance to work through a specific concern or an opportunity to explore yourself. You may feel that something from your past is stopping you from moving forward, or perhaps you just feel empty or alone: in either case, I can offer you the time and attention to explore how you are feeling and make sense of how this affects your behaviour.
If you are unsure about therapy, or would just like to know more details about me, please do not hesitate to contact me. My website has more information about me and my work but if you still have questions, just ask!
