I trained as a counsellor on a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited couse at the University of East Anglia, specialising in Person-Centred Therapy.  I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP Reg.d).


As a psychology graduate I am also a Member of The British Psychological Society (MBPsS). During my career I have been employed by the NHS, charities and universities in roles which included psychological assessment and treatment, health education and health related research.


Whilst working for an NHS community mental health team, I trained in, and worked with, CBT and Family Therapy. Much of my NHS work involved working with older people and I have a particular interest in the care of people with dementia and also in helping carers.

My Background



Sally Jane Webster

I grew up in rural Suffolk and Norfolk and enjoyed being out in the open air as a child, and have always loved swimming in the sea and walking in natural environments. In recent years I became interested in nature-based therapies and managed a horticultural therapy project in Oxfordshire.  Subsequently I studied "green" therapies, environmental issues and nature writing at University of Essex, graduating with an MA in 2011.  Since then I have trained in wild therapy, other nature-based therapies and environmental arts.


I have been active in community programmes involving families and young children and also volunteered in adolescent and youth services. I  trained as a youth mentor and am also a qualified Forest School Leader. Such training enhances my skills in working with children and young people in educational and therapeutic settings.


In addition to my counselling skills and qualifications I bring many years of life experience to my counselling work. My knowledge of the  challenges of family and working life help me appreciate the enormous effort and courage it takes to face, and deal with, the difficult times that life sometimes brings our way.  I have found counselling personally helpful and hope you will too.
