Sally Lee – Person Centred Counsellor
As a person-centred counsellor, I work in a professional yet friendly way to help you explore whatever challenges you are facing. I do this with empathy and by creating a safe space where you can be free to express yourself.
I work with men, women, adults and young people who are experiencing a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, loss, grief, anger, shame, as well as many more.
How I work
My role is to offer a non-judgmental presence as we work together to explore what’s going on for you. Sometimes, this may involve looking into your past, to identify how this has shaped you, and where certain thought patterns, beliefs or ways of viewing the world may have come from.
By bringing these into focus, we can then look at what is helpful and what may need to be let go of.
I believe in being real and may, at times, share some of my own life experiences when it is helpful and appropriate in our work together. And for me, I get a lot out of being witness to people as they get to know themselves and grow.
About your counselling journey
Deciding to start a therapeutic journey is, in my opinion, something to honour. The work is challenging, and I would say to you if you are ready, then expect to be challenged. It is in the moments where we feel the most challenged that we also experience the most growth.
From a place of safety, we can explore these challenging moments with humility, gentleness and sometimes even humour.
What excites me about this work is that the therapeutic journey can extend long after counselling stops. This is because, once we open ourselves up, there is always something new to explore.
Background and qualifications
I hold a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling from Salford College, as well as a Postgraduate Diploma in Play Therapy, from Canterbury Christ Church University.
While my core training is in person-centred therapy, I do draw on and use other therapeutic approaches in my work when they are appropriate to you. I have a specific interest in Transactional Analysis, and I attend additional regular training to keep a varied and open mind.
I am BACP Registered, fully insured and attend regular supervision to ensure my practice is of a high standard. Also, I am committed to having my own therapy, as I know from experience that working on myself is the crucial factor in continually improving as a therapist.
Next steps and making contact
If my approach sounds right for you, then please do get in touch. I offer an initial free telephone consultation where you can ask questions, and we can decide if I am the right therapist for you.
Should you decide I am not right for you, I will respect and honour this.
Please call me on 07881 780 970 or by using the contact form.
