About me and my therapy practice
Welcome to Forwards Counselling. Does life feel like it is getting on top of you?
Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?
... to explore your thoughts and feelings
... to get back on a front foot again
Are you feeling at a crossroads in your life? Do you perhaps feel confused or unheard? Are you feeling helpless or hopeless and cannot see a way clearly through your present thoughts and feelings? These thoughts and feelings can often be overwhelming, making it difficult to see a way forward.
My name is Sarah and I am a practising counsellor in Witheridge, nr. Tiverton. I am committed to providing counselling (and psychotherapy) in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
I am experienced in helping clients who are experiencing difficulties and concerns including:- Depression - Anxiety- Social Anxiety -Generalised Anxiety Disorder - Stress - Panic Attacks - Low Self-Esteem - Loneliness - Isolation - Lack of Self Confidence - Gender Confusion - Work, School, College and University worries - Marital, Relationship and Family difficulties - Addictions - Loss - Bereavement - Bullying - Post-Natal Depression - Bi-Polar.
I meet clients at my practice which is in a welcoming and comfortable room in my home. There is parking on the driveway at the front of the property with easy access.
My first session
Once you have taken that first huge step to contact me, we will arrange to meet for an initial appointment. Our first meeting will last for 45 minutes. During this time I will let you know how the counselling process works and what I can offer you as my client. This time is also for you to share with me your reasons for seeking counselling, your hopes and goals. You will be able to decide if I am the counsellor you wish to work with. Hopefully we will then make plans to meet up on a regular basis for hourly appointments .
I aim to build your trust by putting you at ease, being warm, open, caring, compassionate, honest and non-judgemental. I offer you a safe space to be heard, where our time together will be confidential.
