About me and my therapy practice

Hello my name is Sara I am currently offering therapy in person following the most recent COVID-19 guidelines, Via video call or over the telephone. I know that making the first step in asking for help can often be the hardest and I want you to know that I provide a safe and caring space to gain the help you need.

I have been working in the counselling field for over eight years now, for various settings including the NHS, private healthcare and community charities. For the last four years I have run a bespoke private practice. My aim is to provide a counselling service that promotes a warm loving environment by which clients can find themselves and the joy of life again. 

I feel that counselling in today’s world is more important than ever. High levels of Anxiety due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, high levels of stress due to the instability of work and home environments as well as pre-existing mental health difficulties are having an impact on many people.

With these factors more people are feeling the impact of low mood, anxiety and stress. The current strain on the NHS means often people can not get the support they need when they are asking for it. Private therapy is able to provide that support you or your loved one is looking for now.

Specialising in Addiction Counselling I am very aware that private therapy can also support those who are using coping strategies to try and deal with these pressures of life. Counselling can also support those who may be in recovery but are feeling that they have other things they wish to understand about themselves to support their ongoing journey.

The counselling session belongs to you and as your counsellor, I will provide a safe and caring space to help you work through the difficulties you are having today.

Practice description

Springfield Road therapy practice is located in chelmsford City centre with Car parking available. 

The practice has two rooms, One providing an adult therapy space and the other providing a Children & Family therapy room. Both rooms have been recently refurbished and are complaint to the most recent COVID-19 guidelines. 

Unfortunately the practice is located on the first floor of a listed building so is not able to provide disabled access, It is possible to discuss your therapy needs should you require disabled access and find somewhere appropriate for you for the session to take place.
