• Sarah Kennedy, Counsellor, Dip (Couns), MBACP

    Welcome to
    Ocean View Counselling

    I'm Here to Listen

    Who am I ?

     

    My name is Sarah Kennedy and I am a Qualified Therapeutic Counsellor based in Jersey, Channel Islands.


    I offer face to face counselling to adults, teenagers and children or as an alternative I can also offer online counselling for those that simply do not have the time due to busy life schedules to be able to visit a Counsellor or feel safer speaking from the comfort of their own environment.

    What can I offer?

     

    I offer a safe, confidential and non judgemental counselling service based in Millbrook, Jersey. With a therapy room overlooking views of the ocean, this creates a calming and relaxing therapeutic experience for us to a build a trusting relationship together and to explore what you wish to bring to the sessions in a tranquil environment.   

    Alongside my counselling practice I also work at a local family centre as a Facilitator and Keyworker. My work involves working with families as a means of support and guidance and  I also Facilitate Self Awareness, confidence and self esteem programmes.

    Person Centered

    I am trained in Integrative Counselling, so I can offer a wide range of different counselling methods to suit the client .


    My  prefered approach is Person Centered. I believe that every being holds their own answers within them. By building a trusting relationship we can journey together to find the answers.


    Carl Rogers (Person Centered) believed that there is one human motive in life and that is the actualizing tendency where humans move towards their ultimate self with growth and fulfilment with their own potential. 


    All sessions are client led and as an integrative therapist I am able to use a variety of approaches, working flexibly to suit the needs of each individual client.


    All sessions are confidential and non judgemental. 

    Ocean View Therapy Room

    My Counselling Room faces the Ocean, with a calm and tranquil setting, you will feel at ease in sharing your journey in this safe environment.


    I also offer online counselling sessions through Skype, please contact for further information
