My approach is to work with how you relate to the problem, to other people and to me. We will reflect on the issues at hand. I will offer my perspective. I will challenge your point of view. We will sit together and accept the feelings however overwhelming they may seem.
This work means embarking on a journey towards a place in your life that is yet to be defined: A prospect that can be both exciting and terrifying! But you will not be alone – we work together until you feel it is time to go.
The past cannot be changed.
How we feel about it can.
This is when therapy can really help.
Finding ways to listen and understand one another.
Revealing the trapped feelings behind the mask.
Finding a way to feel the fear and still survive
Coming to terms with loss
Finding a way to express rage in a helpful way
Needing to be heard

My approach allows me to work with most issues.
My modality is Existential Phenomenological. This means I see each person as unique. There is no set agenda. I will listen to your feelings; challenge your perspective; dialogue with your thoughts and explore what it means to be you.
‘The journey I made with Sally was quite literally transformational. Her gentle encouragement enabled me first to allow myself to stay with the emotions and through that to rediscover the person who I had once been but whom had been diminished and then lost for many years.
I am now the happiest, most outgoing and most confident that I have ever been and the techniques and lessons which Sally guided me towards are instrumental in keeping me that way.’
‘I’ve always had a very hard time telling people how I’m feeling. Having Sally a sounding board and being able to get things off my chest was a real release for me. She’s very good at knowing when to listen and when to challenge.’
‘As evidence of Sally being an excellent listener her comments and suggestions are always positive, empathetic and suitable appropriate. I have no hesitation in recommending Sally as a highly skilled counsellor who expresses real interest in her client’s issues.’
‘ I always felt comfortable in the environment as it is a big step to take in getting advice and help. My counselling was dealt with in a very professional manner by Sally as I always felt comfortable in discussing the addiction and what may have encouraged it in the first place.’
‘I have been lucky enough to have Sally’s incredible counselling support through the last 4 years of my university studies as a mature student. I experienced a great deal of stress and self-doubt through the course which could be very debilitating at times, and Sally created a wonderful, nurturing and safe space in which to explore my deepest feelings.
Sally Is so caring, compassionate and yet always professional, working with integrity and wisdom. She supported me through tears and equally she has a wonderful sense of humour which is healing in itself.
Through therapy with Sally, I was able to be fully present with whatever emotion was arising and as a result I was able to see unhelpful patterns emerging and work on them. She helped me find ways to be kinder to myself and supported me through many crystallising ‘a-ha’ moments where I could release worries both emotionally and on a physical level.
I am so grateful for Sally and the fantastic work that she does, I don’t think that I could have reached the end of my studies and eventually secured my dream job if I didn’t have Sally as my counsellor and her therapy room as my emotional refuge. I would whole heartedly recommend her to anyone wanting to explore their thoughts and feelings and find helpful strategies to support them through whatever like is bringing up for you, be it a full blown life crisis or whether you are just wanting to increase awareness of your inner self.’
