Sarah Toothill M.A. (Counselling), MBACP
I trained as a person-centred counsellor at University of East Anglia where I graduated with a M.A. in counselling. By working together in a non-judgemental, secure and supportive environment, at your pace, I believe that you will be able to work towards a better understanding of yourself and your current circumstances, bringing fresh perspectives and growth.
I provide a peaceful, confidential room set in a secluded garden where you can explore whatever comes up for you, without being judged or told what to do.
The first session lasts 30 minutes and is free. it is an opportunity for us to consider how we might work together. it is intended that this session will be for you to outline the reason you wish to access counselling and for me to outline my working practices. if you decide you want to continue we will usually meet weekly thereafter.
Training, qualifications & experience
I work at a local counselling charity (non-profit) as a volunteer counsellor. I also have a small private practice near Norwich. I am a trustee for a local elderly people's sheltered housing scheme.
Prior to qualifying as a person-centred counsellor I spent many years in supportive and listening roles within: YMCA; a hostel for the homeless; probation service (drug offenders); housing associations (tenant support).
I have co-facilitated on a U.E.A. Certificate in Counselling course.

The first session is free and lasts 30 minutes. Subsequent sessions will be 1 hour with fees ranging between £15 and £40. The fee is decided by the client based on my belief that they know best about their financial means and ability to pay an amount that reflects this. The exception is the late night sessions which will be charged at £40 per hour. Missed sessions will be charged at half the agreed fee if cancelled with more than 24 hours notice and full agreed fee under 24 hours.
If you would like to find out more please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
