Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit my website.
People come to therapy for many different reasons and at different points in their lives:
- you may be struggling with stress, anxiety or low mood.
- you may feel overwhelmed by the loss of a loved one or you have suffered a significant loss.
- you may be trying to understand yourself better and struggling with
self- esteem or self-worth issues.
- maybe you are unable to cope with past issues of trauma, abuse or neglect that are affecting your present life and happiness.
I am here to offer you a safe and confidential space where you can talk freely about anything that is concerning you and we can work together to where the quality of your life can be improved, and you can reshape your life into what you want it to be.
About Me and How I work
Hi I'm Sandra and I am an experienced and qualified Therapist running a small, private practice from home.
My office is quiet, cosy and peaceful and a place where I can offer you one to one counselling in a calm and tranquil setting.
I am based in the Watcombe Park area of Torquay.
My counselling room is up 1 flight of stairs.
There is on road parking nearby.
I also work with clients online using Zoom video calls which means I can work with people anywhere in the UK or the rest of the world. Online work means you can connect during your lunch hour, from the convenience of your home or office, fitting a session in at both a time and place which works best for you.
In Counselling no issue is seen to be too big or too small and I offer a confidential, compassionate, non- judgemental space for you to explore issues that may be from the past or are affecting you now.
My role is not to tell you what to do or 'fix' you but to facilitate and empower you to discover best fit solutions that will work for you.
I am an Internal Family Systems (IFS) informed therapist.
I am experienced in dealing with many different issues including:
Abuse including Physical, Emotional, Sexual and Spiritual abuse, both in the past or present.
