About me and my therapy practice
Hi! My name is Sarah and I am a counsellor working in Central Southend. My counselling practice is based within the University of Essex building, which is right by Southend Central train station.
I know through personal experience that the choice to contact a counsellor is rather daunting and scary. Therefore I can assure you that I will show you empathy, honesty and understanding, as well as providing a non-judgemental environment. Counselling gives you the opportunity to explore past and present issues in a safe, confidential space.
Despite how daunting counselling may be I have seen that the first step is always worthwhile because I have witnessed and experienced firsthand the benefits of counselling.
I am a fully qualified counsellor/therapist for both children and adults. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and therefore I adhere to their ethical framework and code of conduct which is available from https://www.bacp.co.uk/.
I work in an integrative way which means that I use a variety of different techniques and skills which I tailor to fit your individual needs. This is because I believe every client is different and working integatively allows me to find the right approach for you. I combine techniques from the following approaches to counselling:
CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
TA (Transactional Analysis)
Play Therapy (for children & young people)
At the core of my practice is my belief that you are the only expert in your life. Therefore I believe that every person has the ability to change and that I can provide support and knowledge to help you develop skills that will empower you to cope better with life's challenges.
