Counselling & Psychotherapy for Adults & Adolescents living in Thames Ditton, Surbiton, Kingston upon Thames and surrounding areas Sandra Cregg, BA(Hons), MBACP(Accredited)
My name is Sandra Cregg and I am a professionally qualified counsellor and psychotherapist offering counselling based in Thames Ditton, Surrey, which is easily accessible by train or by car (there is free parking outside). My practice is ideally located for adults and adolescents looking for counselling and psychotherapy who live in Surbiton, Kingston upon Thames, Esher, Claygate, Cobham, East Molesey and West Molesey, Teddington, Walton on Thames and Weybridge and nearby surrounding areas of Surrey.
The individual psychotherapy I offer is for adults and adolescents in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential therapy room. The sessions can be open-ended or for an agreed time period, with the aim of helping you to gain greater understanding of your difficulties and free up choices for you to move towards positive change.
Throughout my work, I have been able to support clients who have experienced difficulties with :
I believe it is the quality of the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client that is the most important factor in how successful counselling will be and so it is really important to me that you are able to experience me as someone who can provide a warm, respectful and accepting relationship without judgement or criticism.
When counselling, I work using an Integrative approach, which just means I can bring different ideas into our work together, giving you a greater choice when trying to work out what’s happened to you and why. I am also able to use creative techniques such as art materials, sand tray and puppets whenever appropriate and only if you feel it's right for you. Sometimes being creative provides the possibility of greater understanding if talking therapy becomes too difficult for whatever reason. And the more you are able to understand, the better chance you have of being able to change and move forward.
Choosing a counsellor and psychotherapist is a very personal choice and it is important to find one who you feel comfortable being in a therapeutic relationship with. I really appreciate that it might feel really unnerving coming to counselling for the first time, particularly at a time when you’re not feeling at your strongest. I am aware that it might have been a huge step for you to get to my door and so my hope is that you would find both me and my room warm and welcoming.
