About Us

Dedicated to health and wellbeing
Why Choose Me?

I specialise in addiction, trauma, anxiety, depression, family support, relationships, complex mental health issues and attachment disorders. I bring together a powerful integrated approach to promote a healthy alliance between mind and body, which clears your path to move forward in life and make change more manageable.  

A key advantage of integrative therapy is its flexibility and focuses on the whole of an individual. The integration of different approaches means therapy can be tailored to meet a variety of needs and concerns, making it arguably a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment than more traditional, singular forms of psychotherapy.

Counselling will also offer an increase in the ability to be more present in the moment. Results are more clarity and increased self-awareness in the ability to develop skills to manage the mind & emotions. You become more self-expressed & more authentic in all your relationships. 

 

Counsellor and client relationship

 

Integrative counselling and psychotherapy is a relational process. This means that the therapeutic relationship is the key ingredient in the work that the therapist and counsellor do together.

The alliance between client and therapist is the vessel for the therapeutic journey; when it is valued and nurtured, it provides the safety needed for the work to take place.

In integrative counselling, the developing relationship allows the therapist to adapt their approach to the needs of the client, and for the client to feel safe enough to explore and express their needs. Integrative therapy is a collaborative process, and the relationship is central to the success of therapy.

Good Practice

I work to do all I can to promote equality of opportunity and to challenge discrimination both as an individual and professionally. This impacts positively in my work, where I understand people have differences, which I respect, and will always work to promote participation, equality of opportunity and inclusivity. I am fully aware of and committed to equal opportunities and diversity practices. I have worked with people from a wide range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds and religions; people with differing levels of physical and learning ability; people of all sexualities. I strongly believe that everyone should be, treated fairly and with respect.

I am aware of and committed to Safeguarding. I believe that Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and there should be no tolerance of abuse or exploitation of any client. Consideration should be given to those clients deemed to be vulnerable or at risk of harm.

I believe confidentiality is one of the most important components in building a trusting working relationship. As important is my responsibility and legal obligation to ensure that information held is kept accurate, confidential and secure in accordance with GDPR compliance.

I receive regular supervision and believe it is essential if not vital to ensure high standards of professional practice and adhere to the ethical framework for good practice of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). Ongoing supervision and personal development helps me to reflect, and review the quality of my work as well as the client’s progress.

“I am much more confident in myself and my abilities. I’ve definitely made moves away from viewing myself as a victim. I value myself much more. I am no longer a victim but a survivor”. I feel I am growing as a person, and although its sometimes overwhelming and scary I feel a sense of confidence that makes it all worth it”.  It all down to you, thank you so much Sally.
