Sally Brown Integrative counsellor , MK40
I am an experienced, compassionate therapist, committed to helping clients reach their potential and live their best life. The world of therapy is changing rapidly and it no longer has to involve endless hours unpicking your childhood. I believe that in most cases significant change can happen fast in the right environment. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental environment where you can say the 'unsayable'. It's also a place where you can pause and reflect, switch out of 'doing' mode for an hour, and think about what really matters to you, and what you want from life.
Therapy can help you deal with specific problems and challenges, but it's also the place to come if you simply feel stuck, or you just want to feel happier or less anxious about life in general. Sometimes, you need a place to talk through thoughts and emotions that you don't feel ready to share with friends and family. It's not an indulgence - it's an investment both in yourself, and the people you care about.
I’m an integrated therapist, which means I work with several techniques that complement each other. One-size does not fit all when it comes to therapy, so I aim to offer a bespoke service for each client, based on my training in psychodynamic counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy and therapeutic coaching.
Finding the right therapist for you is crucial. I am registered with the BACP, which means I abide by their stringent code of ethics and am committed to working safely, ethically and confidentially. But it's also important to feel comfortable with your therapist and understood by them. Part of the purpose of an initial assessment is for you to get an idea of whether you feel you could work with a counsellor. There should be no obligation to book further sessions with a therapist if you don't feel that you 'clicked' with them. I am also happy to have a preliminary phone conversation, free of charge, to help you decide whether it would be useful to book an assessment. You are also very welcome to email me if you have any questions.
