My name is Sally Cloke and I’m fully qualified therapist in both adult and child counselling Ashford.
I am a BACP (British Association Counsellors & Psychotherapists) accredited ‘Integrative Counsellor’. This means I draw upon a wide range of different therapeutic approaches to meet your individual needs. My aim is to build a trusting, non-judgemental therapeutic relationship between us. This should enable you to feel deeply understood and fully accepted for who you are.
I have gained a wealth of experience counselling across private, public and voluntary sectors. I consider myself to be warm, approachable and kind with an aim to provide a safe, confidential environment. When therapy is of high quality it means you will feel much better placed to want to open up and talk through what is troubling you. With my help you will achieve a better understanding of yourself. This understanding builds confidence, leading you to be more able to identify your own solutions to the problems you face. This feeling of empowerment will enable you to move past any problematic thoughts or feelings. This will result in you moving forward in a more positive way.
I have vast experience providing counselling for both children and young people in both residential and fostering settings. Outside of my private therapy, I also work with young people who are statemented with Autism.
Not only do I offer a safe space to talk, I also provide a range of creative resources depending on the needs of the child. In my experience, younger children benefit from having opportunities to work in a creative way. The use of a range of materials such as clay, drawing or playing games encourages them to open up. Young people often find it more comfortable to express their thoughts and concerns when the focus is not directed at them. I work to empower a child and encourage self-expression.
I believe that the building of an open and honest relationship between myself and the young person, provides an environment where they can be really honest, without a fear of being judged. It is important for children to feel properly heard and fully accepted to enable them to move forward. More about counselling for children
