About me and my therapy practice
Hi, my name is Sarah and I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor based in Newport, Shropshire. Although I am predominantly a person-centred counsellor, being ‘integrative’ means that I am able to remain flexible in my approach to meet your needs.
I understand that seeking help can feel difficult and I aim to make your appointments feel safe and comfortable and I will work at a pace that feels good to you. My clients have described me as a warm, down to earth, and compassionate person who is a good listener, which is helpful if you are feeling vulnerable, uncomfortable or fearful about sharing your feelings.
I believe in entering our therapeutic relationship with an open mind and I have a keen interest in understanding your past experiences and relationships. My aim is to create a secure relationship, that is free of judgement and values your individuality.
My belief is that you are the expert in your own life and that therapy can help you to make sense of relationships, difficult experiences and patterns of behaviour.
You are invited to bring whatever is present for you and I welcome you to arrive just as you are.
Practice descriptionMy practice is set in a quaint little arcade on the edge of Newport, Shropshire. It is easily accessible with wheelchair access and free parking nearby. My therapy room is welcoming and comfortable with a modern style.
My first session
Sessions last for around fifty minutes. Our first session may take longer than one hour as this is an opportunity for us to decide if we can work together (this is known as an Assessment Session). During this session, I will need to ask you some questions about yourself, what has brought you to therapy, and what you are hoping to get from the sessions.
