Sari Malhomme. Qualified Counsellor MBACP
Hello and thank you for visiting my profile. My name is Sari. I am a qualified and registered member of BACP and my practice is based in central Maidstone.
I am passionate about the work I do and I always feel humbled by people's life experience. I believe it is important to provide a safe and non judgemental space so that my clients can feel able to discuss their difficulties with confidence throughout the counselling journey.
People seek counselling for many reasons, from any anxiety related issues or relationship difficulties to the more complex issues, such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or abuse. Whatever your reason for seeking counselling, it is important that you feel you can talk openly to your counsellor, so that you can build a therapeutic relationship together and work towards your goal.
The counselling work sometimes needs to be a long term intervention and other times the work can be done as a short term intervention. I am able to offer you both, but this will always be led by you, depending on your own needs and the issues that you would like to bring to the counselling.
My main work is with the NHS, but I also manage my own private practice and counsel victims of crime for a local charity.
I work mainly with adults and young people and I can offer appointments most week days and weekends.
Please contact me without any obligations on 07759 634 863 or email me if you have any questions, I will be more than happy to help.
