Sarah Tomley BSc (Hons), MBACP, UKCP Accredited Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
2 Civic Drive
I am an accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor with knowledge and experience across a wide range of psychological issues, including depression, anxiety and trauma. I have a special interest in anxiety – including generalized and social anxiety – and the multi-generational problems that stem from addictive behaviours such as alcoholism.
Since 2012, I have offered 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 UKCP-accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor, a registered member of BACP and accredited by Cruse and Ascentis in bereavement care.
During my professional life I have also contributed to several books, including The Psychology Book, The Philosophy Book, and The Children's Book of Philosophy. My latest book, What Would Freud Do? (Cassell & Co, London) has been translated into 11 languages.
I offer people a free, no-obligation first session, to give them a chance to tell me a little about what's troubling them and to ask any questions they might have about me or the process before deciding whether counselling feels right for them. If you would like to arrange an initial appointment, please email me on email@example.com or phone me on 01473 381412.
