That is what being an Integrative counsellor is about—offering bespoke sessions for clients online or face-to-face in a safe space. We can explore Hypnotherapy in face-to-face sessions if it is relevant to your goal.

Problems with relationships, unwanted circumstances, feeling stuck or trapped, so many things can interfere with living the sort of life you want. The problems of daily life, and our personal past can hinder us in feeling fulfilled, of living with meaning and purpose. We establish what's getting in the way and what you hope for, the focus on finding the path that takes you where you want to go. It's a partnership in curiosity and investigation, based in building trust. There's no rush and no set agenda because what arises comes from you, in your own time and in your own way.

Quite often, life will present you with an issue that you find hard to talk about. Attending counselling will take you to a safe and confidential setting where you can be totally yourself. The benefits of counselling are support and being listened to through difficult times. This will develop strategies for coping, the exploration of thoughts, feelings and emotions. It will help you to reveal your potential and to come to a place of acceptance.

Hi, I’m Sarah. I became a counsellor as I believe in the healing power of the counselling relationship. Sometimes we can feel lost and alone with how we feel. Having someone to share and work through our thoughts and feelings with, in a safe, nonjudgemental environment can help us to make the changes we want to make and begin to move forward with our lives.

Clients access therapy for a multitude of reasons; there may be difficulties at work, challenges in a relationship or a client may have been abused spanning a number of years. My hope with therapy is to explore the roots of issues, to rediscover our innate resilience, to build self-esteem and to help you meet your goals, your hopes, your wishes. Many people access therapy because they want to feel different, to change the emotions they are experiencing, or for others it may be learning to access those feelings that have perhaps been locked away through trauma.

Counselling can be the first step toward better self care and prioritising your own needs. It can help with understanding the choices you have in life. It can be used to work on issues such as anxiety, depression or anger. It can be helpful to look at the past and understand how it impacts the present. Re-framing this can lead to a better understanding and maybe less self blame or shame. We can carry burdens which aren't ours to carry and counselling can be a safe place to explore this. It can help for the management of difficult relationships in our lives.

I believe that our capacity to cope with issues that arise in adult life, whether this is how we experience the world, relate to others, cope with difficult situations or understand and manage what can often be overwhelming emotions, is ultimately bound up with our early experiences. Whether we wish to or not we carry our history with us and sometimes this does not provide the strong foundation needed to engage and embrace life or weather its storms. I work with clients to recognise the origins of their difficulties so that together we might arrive at a place where life is understandable, and they feel both validated and valued.

Have you reached a point where you are beginning to notice your mental health is starting to impact those around you or maybe you no longer enjoy the things that used to bring you joy. Maybe your physical health as changed, are you distant and withdrawn towards others, or maybe you put on an "act" when you're around others to avoid others seeing you as you really are. Or maybe you wish to develop a greater self-confidence, or tools to cope more effectively with life?

People come to counselling for various reasons; talking with someone unconnected with your situation, can assist you in gaining new insight and support with your concerns. When you have the opportunity to explore these issues together with your counsellor, you may find ways to create new, healthier responses that benefit your behaviour, relationships and ultimately, your own wellbeing. My role is always to support you and ‘untangle’ issues in a collaborative way, allowing you to develop new ways of thinking to promote positive change.

Losing someone close to you can be one of the hardest things you will experience in your life. Leaving you feeling isolated, lost and as if life will never be the same again. I have lots of experience of working with clients who are struggling in their grief to help them come to terms with what has happened, make sense of how they feel and look forward to their future. I have particular experience supporting women and their partners who have had pregnancy related grief/crisis from working within a Plymouth based charity for six years.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
