I have supported women who have experienced domestic abuse and supported them in their journey.
Sometimes life can be tough and talking about the challenges and struggles we go through with our loved ones can be even more difficult and it can leave us feeling isolated and lonely. Asking for help is not easy and if you have not experienced counselling before you may find your self asking the question, do i need counselling? If you feel the need to gain insight and self awareness than counselling is a safe place for you to start your journey of self healing. We are living in the time of uncertainty and many of us are feeling stressed and anxious.It can be helpful to talk to a professional who can provide an outside perspective.

Hello and a warm welcome to my profile. Sometimes it can be difficult to know which way to turn when we are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed, or upset. Maybe you don't feel you can talk to family or friends. Reaching out and asking for help can feel quite daunting but I hope I can make that path easier for you. I have over 20 years experience working with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, bereavement, low self-esteem and past trauma. I also have extensive experience working with clients who have a diagnosis of cancer and their families.

I am a caring, compassionate individual that has a natural empathy towards others, I aim to provide a safe space that will enable you to explore your current situation without fear of being judged. I will walk with you whilst you explore any challenges, emotions and feelings that may be holding you back from reaching your full potential. At times, we all need a helping hand or somebody to shine a torch through the darkness, reaching out for support is not a sign of weakness, it takes strength and courage. I have experienced the benefits of counselling myself and feel humbled to be in a position to offer the same support to others.

Are you struggling with something difficult in the here and now, such as the loss of a loved one, or the breakdown of a relationship? Or perhaps you’re aware of vague, underlying feelings of sadness, anxiety, or anger. Maybe you feel trapped in a cycle of repeated disappointments with partners, friends, career and don’t know why. Whether you know what the problem is, or even if you don’t, therapy can help. It’s an opportunity to explore yourself; to examine feelings, thought, and motivations to gain understanding - the first step towards navigating a different, happier course. You've taken the first brave step - the next is to call.

A good healthy relationship can enrich our lives and and provide a deep sense of fulfilment, both emotionally and physically. When relationships are not working we often feel frustrated, and confused with measurable consequences on our lives and those around us.There are many reasons why relationships become difficult or unmanageable These may be because of poor communication, arguments that are repeated or never resolved, trust issues, an affair or life stage transitions such as having children, divorce, blended families, bereavement or retirement.

I offer Outdoor Therapy to those who would like to use nature, walking and the freedom these bring into your therapy. Although I specialise in low self-esteem/confidence building, understanding and managing anxiety and body image I have experience of working in many areas of Counselling. I believe swapping a Therapy room for an outdoor setting is therapy in itself; providing a freedom to fully immerse yourself into you and your problems, thus finding a solution or an understanding of what is happening through talking as we walk. Sessions can be talking and walking or using a personal development exercise.

Hi, my name is Sal. I work with people with a wide range of issues. Many people come to therapy because they are having a difficult time and want someone to listen to them, others want help in finding reasons why they are feeling this way. Sometimes people have more complex issues and need someone skilled and experienced to help them manage and work through them.

Psychotherapy can be a broad term - I offer first and foremost a safe space for you to be yourself, without judgment and with compassion, where we can begin to unravel some of your feelings. We don't get the chance very often to really think about how we are doing, even though we might ask each other several times a day. How many times do we respond other than the "Fine, thanks! You?" Therapy is a place for me to ask "How are you?" and for you to really think about the answer.

As a member of the BACP and adhering to their ethical guidelines, there is nothing too big or too small to bring to counselling. You are not alone and I'm here for you.

Are you feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope with things that normally weren't an issue. Maybe you have experienced a trauma that still impacts your everyday life, or changes in circumstances for any number of reasons, financial, ill health or divorce. Many things can impact our mental health and each one of us experiences it differently. We all want to be listened to and understood and yet there may be things we can't even share with those closest to us. Therapy can help to unburden you, see solutions and gain a better understanding of yourself and what is best for you.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Preston?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Preston specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
