I’m Sara, a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (www.bacp.co.uk).
I love seeing the changes in people as they have counselling and I am privileged to be a part of that.
Having worked for 20 years within the travel industry and the past 10 years also working (both voluntary and paid) in more specific helping/advice and counselling roles, I have worked with people of all ages and many different backgrounds.
My journey with counselling began with working voluntarily as a Community Support Worker with Victim Support, helping victims of crime and anti social behaviour. Since then I have worked for different agencies, with a variety of topics and with people of different ages.
Work with both young people and adults has covered many things including anxiety, self harm, bereavement, family relationships, low self esteem, suicidal thoughts, stress, career changes and more. This work as well as my own personal experiences of bereavement, low mood, anxiety and low self esteem help me to broaden my knowledge, develop my understanding of different issues and ways to help you get through this time.
I qualified with a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling from City College, Southampton in association with Middlesex University and continue to develop my skills through various training.
In direct response to Covid-19 I have completed online training specifically regarding telephone and online sessions and continue to update my knowledge and skills on this.
I am fully insured and DBS checked.
