We’ll explore the past and present to help you to heal and become more self aware so you can move forward.

If you have been struggling with anxiety, self-criticism, shame, low mood, difficult emotions & relationships, it may be the right time to find a trusted therapist; someone to help you understand & grow from the effects of adversity, stress & trauma. Our wellbeing can be affected by many things - work stress, early adversity, significant trauma or relationships, and we do our best to find helpful coping strategies. When our ways of coping don't work so well, we can feel stuck and isolated - psychological therapy can help us move beyond those barriers. I focus on you as an individual, without using labels or diagnoses.

People decide to look for therapy for many reasons; stress, anxiety or depression, difficulties in relationships; anything that's stopping them living the life they want. I place importance on helping clients understand the causes, not simply focusing on the symptoms. Ultimately, knowing yourself better is the key to a more fulfilling life, with improved relationships and feeling better within yourself on a day to day basis.

Hello there, and welcome. Unwanted feelings/experiences can often be scary, I believe in acknowledging this is natural and ok. Maybe you feel hopeless, misunderstood, lacking self-worth, question self-identity, feel you don't belong, and want hope, to improve communication skills to express yourself, or help others understand you. Do you want to find where you feel belonging? Feeling stuck in life and want to live again? Are you seeking to grow out of depression or anxiety? I offer a safe, compassionate, space to explore your past/present, your emotions/thoughts, your behaviours and body's responses. Working together for your needs.

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with experience of working with adults and young people. Often people find themselves experiencing difficulties, wanting to make changes and to feel happier, but can feel stuck or unsure with how or where to start. My role as a therapist is to work alongside you, by offering you support to help you make these changes. We will do this by working through the past and the present to enable us to think about how you would like things to be different. This can lead to a greater understanding of yourself and feeling more in control of your life.

I like to describe the process of therapy to clients as the unpacking and re-packing of a messy suitcase. There may be things in there that have been actively avoided and possibly some things that have been forgotten about altogether. Through gentle and curious exploration, the suitcase is opened; things are taken out and safely examined. Coming face to face with that which has caused pain can be frightening but it needn't be done alone. The re-packing of the suitcase allows for the healing and acceptance of that which has been pushed away from the mind but is still stored in the body. Things will start to feel lighter and clearer.

It is very human to have psychological difficulties at various points in our lives. Difficult things can happen to us leaving us feeling scared and/ or low/ depressed. Society can also make us feel pressurised to look a certain way and we can feel pretty worthless if don't believe that we conform to these societal expectations. All of these can be both frightening and overwhelming, which makes it so important to have a calm, compassionate and skilful therapist to guide you towards recovery.

When life feels overwhelming we can be surrounded by people yet feel so alone and disconnected from ourselves and the world. We may have lost sense of who we are, be burdened by guilt or shame, find it difficult to regulate our emotions, struggle with relationships or feel labelled, judged, unseen and unheard. Counselling can help. It helps us make sense of our feelings and emotions, gaining sight of what we cannot see or hear. Speaking from experience reaching out can feel daunting especially when we're at our most vulnerable and I acknowledge courage in those that do.

Sometimes life throws us challenges both through past and present experiences, which knock us off our feet and we become engulfed in uncertainty, worry and fear. It could be that we start to doubt ourselves and feel that we are not good enough or we are unable to cope, leading to anxiety and depression. Whatever you are going through, it deserves care, attention and compassion and I believe that you have the inner wisdom to work through these issues as you are the person that knows yourself better than anyone,

Do you feel like a pressure cooker ready to explode? Do you feel lost and that every way you turn issues arise? Are you getting angry at people for no reason? Or feeling so down and desperate you don’t know which way to turn?It can be overwhelming sometimes even thinking about asking for help when as a culture we are supposed to be able to cope with everyday pressures. Life changing experiences and challenges such as loss, trauma or redundancy can cause unbelievable stresses on an already stressful life. It is all to easy to become stuck in a rut or to begin to struggle with daily life with all the competing pressures we face.

Welcome I’m Sally, life is a roller coaster, we ride the highs and struggle with the painful lows. I understand taking the step to seek help and share your experiences is hard and scary, it takes courage, so trust is paramount within the therapeutic relationship. I offer a safe, supportive, non judgmental and empathetic environment, taking your direction to walk along side you. Time is precious, our own needs are usually low on our list. Focusing on ourselves and investing in our well-being enables growth and clarity. Self love is core in all of our relationships. Finding our own inner happiness and taking power back, creates peace
