Sarah Tomley – UKCP Accredited Counsellor, IFS Therapist
Today, we're all coping with huge challenges to our state of mind, as well as our physical health.
But if you were already struggling to cope with your internal sense of self, or the world outside your body - or both - this might be a good time to find a way to reboot your whole system, to bring a greater sense of ease and control back into your life.
I use a transformative type of therapy known as IFS (Internal Family Systems), which integrates all the recent learning from neuroscience with best practice in psychotherapy. Sessions feel easy and relaxed, while bringing about deep systemic change.
We will work together to help those parts of you that try to control your inner and outer life, as well as the parts that are scared, hurt or lost, so that some of the great distractions of your life (be that watching box sets, shopping, sex, alcohol, drugs or gambling) don't have to exert such a pull on you every day.
How would it feel to be back at the centre of yourself, and truly, easily in control? If that sounds good, contact me and I'll arrange an assessment session - then we can take it from there.
Since 2012, I have offered psychotherapeutic counselling to men and women in Cambridge and Suffolk for several organizations, including Suffolk Mind, The Cogwheel Trust, Cruse Bereavement Care and The Miscarriage Association. I am accredited with the UK Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP), a registered member of BACP, and an IFS (internal Family Systems) therapist (Level 3, trained by Richard Schwarz).
I am also an author, and my books include What Would Freud Do? (now available in 13 languages) and Instant Psychology (2020).
If you would like to arrange an initial appointment, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me on 01473 381412.
