Sarah Williams, BA hons (couns), Dip (couns), MBACP.
Seeking support when life is presenting challenges can be quite daunting and you may have some worries about sharing your feelings and emotions with a stranger. I understand this fear, and will work with you to build a relationship that is open and honest, caring and supportive.
I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment for you to be truly heard. You decide what is discussed in our time together.
My aim is to help you develop clarity by listening and providing insight and support, enabling an increased sense of understanding of your thoughts and feelings when faced with feeling distressed, anxious, depressed, confused or unable to cope.

Memberships of Professional Bodies:
I am an individual member of the BACP, British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and I am bound by and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
I hold full Professional Liability Insurance.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Counselling sessions are £50.
Each session is 50 minutes. Fees are payable on the day by way of cash, cheque or bank transfer.
I am willing to consider concessions which can be discussed on an individual basis.
