Sasha Thornton MBACP
327 Bridgewater Drive
I offer a private and confidential counselling service for adults and young people from the age of 11 and over.
I understand that there are many difficult issues and experiences that people are facing in today's society and am passionate in the services that I provide to adults, young people and their families.
Many people find it difficult to open up and share their painful and challenging life story, however after attending for an initial assessment, they soon find my calm and gentle approach enables them to feel more at ease and begin to share their experiences.
Additionally, I offer a more specialised service for young people between the ages of 11 -25 at the Adolescent Support Clinic.
Depending on their age, I respect the automony of any young person and therefore leave it for the client to decide whether or not they would like to have a parent or guardian present for the assessment.
