"Change happens when, instead of trying to become what I am not, I become more fully who I am " David Boadella (1987)
Who I am
My name is Sarah Weaver. The type of counselling I offer is Humanistic and Integrative. That means that I believe you, as the client, hold the capacity to sow your own seeds towards new and healthy growth. In order to help this along we will work together in the way that best suits your own individua[ needs. I believe the relationship that we develop provides a significant aspect of the healing process.
I am member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide to their Ethical Code.for Good Practice. I receive regular supervision in my work.
My rooms are in the heart of Easton Bristol in the Eastern Yoga studio and in Kingswood.

So what is counselling?
We all have times in life when we find it hard to cope. Sometimes we have a lack of understanding about what is happening to us. We may feel anxious, desperate or very alone.
Having someone to talk to can lighten the load and make things seem more manageble.
I will provide a safe space for you to bring what you need to to the sessions.
I will listen to you in a non- judgemental way and together we can try to make sense of your experiences and feelings.
Sometimes this involves distinguishing patterns from the past and finding links to what is happening in the present
I believe in working towards you developing a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with yourself.
I charge £45 for a fifty minute session. The first session is for us both to get a feel for what it might be like to work together. It is important to feel comfortable and relaxed with the counsellor you choose.
