Sarah Webb MBACP (Registered) - In person (walk and talk) / online / telephone
Hi, I’m Sarah and welcome to my page.
Are you feeling anxious and overwhelmed with your emotions or maybe feeling sad, which may have been brought into your awareness due to COVID-19? If so, I offer a supportive space where you will be listened to, not judged, where we can talk about whatever is troubling you.
I am a dedicated, respectful and passionate counsellor who will endeavour to achieve a therapeutic, confidential and positive relationship with you in order to explore any issues that are confusing or troubling you. I love what I do and I deeply believe in working with the 'whole' person, rather than a 'label', so through talking, we are able to discuss your emotions and feelings and what is going on in your life and whether there is anything that you would like to change or achieve.
As a woman in my 40’s, with my own life experiences, I have developed many skills, which have assisted me in working as a qualified Person-Centred counsellor.
To give you a bit of a background of Person-Centred Counselling, it means that you will be given my full, professional commitment, whilst we work at a pace that is suitable for you. This is to encourage / enable you to talk openly and freely about your emotions or whatever you feel is important in that moment, or, what is causing an imbalance in your life. This may be things like anxiety, anger, a traumatic event in your life or it could be you would like to build on your confidence or low self esteem.
People often say that by speaking to a counsellor, it is the first time that they have been able to express and talk about themselves and their thoughts, without being ridiculed or judged.
I will be supportive and understanding, in unravelling your lived experiences and feelings together. We can discuss your goals and expectations in the sessions, to ensure this time and space is used to meet your needs.
No personal judgement will be passed by myself and most importantly you will be actively listened to, for me to gain an understanding of your life from your perspective. This will help you to express your thoughts and feelings in our safe, confidential environment, whilst empowering you to implement positive changes in your life that you are comfortable with.
I have been privileged to be able to support many people through their difficult times and from these experiences I have learnt that YOU are the expert in your life, and the one who holds the answers from within. It’s for us, by working therapeutically together, to be able to untangle your feelings, further understand your lived experiences and for you to regain clarity and work towards the goals you may be looking to achieve.
I provide both long and short-term therapy sessions to over 18's. We can discuss your needs and progress at regular intervals and you can choose how often or little we work together.
I am a registered member of the BACP and have achieved their Certificate of Proficiency, whilst being a fully insured and qualified counsellor who receives regular clinical supervision. I have experience in working with charitable organisations, covering for example, domestic violence, relationship problems, alcohol abuse, sexual abuse, family issues, low self esteem, depression and anxiety. As a counsellor, I regularly undertake continuous professional development in order to expand on my skills and current knowledge.
I hope the above information has given you an understanding of myself and how we could work together. I realise and recognise choosing a counsellor can be challenging and somewhat confusing on times, therefore, if you would like to contact me to discuss any questions you may have, then please contact me either on mobile number 07944 604683 or if you prefer, you can email me. I also have a website - www.sarahwebbcounselling.co.uk, which has a Q&A section, which has helpful information if you require it.
Thank you for taking time out to read my page. Take care and warm regards.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
