Sarah Speedy, PgDip, MBACP Registered Counsellor
I believe we all need to be a little more selfish when it comes to looking after our own mental wellbeing. I am a professional, independent, person-centred counsellor at my practice, The Selfish Space.
Here I offer a safe place that’s just for you – where you can explore your inner thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental and empathic environment.
Together we will:
- Work at your pace, on the issues you want to explore
- Reflect and gain clarity on the root of any issue
- Consider the impact of your thought patterns and behaviours
- Make changes to help you move forward
- Work in a person-centred way, as well as drawing from other therapies to provide the best possible support for you

I offer a free 30-minute pre-counselling meeting as I believe it’s essential to feel comfortable with any therapist to get the best possible outcome for you.
Some clients prefer to start with a conversation over email or telephone, whilst others prefer a face-to-face discussion.
Simply get in touch on 07718 996107 or email me direct: firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

This kind of work is usually focused on a 5-8 week time scale but can be negotiated.
