I'm Sally Moore, a qualified, experienced, NCS accredited Counsellor offering counselling, trauma-focused therapy, EMDR, and Mental Health First Aid Instructor. I have an enhanced DBS check which I renew each year. I am also in psychotherapy training, working towards accreditation with United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists (UKCP).
I use concepts and skills from the different approaches of Transactional Analysis (TA) and integrate other models that I have trained in, according to what clients want. TA is a theory of personality developement, a way of understanding unuseful patterns that keep us stuck, how we are in relationships, and our communication with others. In addition, I believe that we all have the resources within us to heal and move forward, and the relationship between client and therapist is most important in facilitating this to happen.
I have always enjoyed working with people, and so becoming a Counsellor felt like a natural step for me. I have over 15 years' experience of working with young people and professionals in further education and specialist colleges, and a background in welfare work and careers coaching.
In addition to my counselling work, I taught Level 3 Certificate in Counselling at a local college. I am also approved by Mental Health First Aid England to deliver the full programme of Adult Mental Health courses nationally.
I absolutely love my job. Supporting people through difficult times and personal growth is a real privilege.
Currently in advanced psychotherapy training.
