About Me

Saundra Rhoden, MBACP

You Deserve to Feel Great. I’m Here to Help.

It can be difficult to make that first step towards seeking support.  I aim to build a relationship of trust as I work empathically and non-judgementally.  

My Background 

 I am a qualified Gestalt Counsellor and have undertaken specialist training in Psychosexual Therapy and Eating Disorders.  I have worked within the NHS, voluntary organisations, public and private sector.      

I also have years of experience as a qualified Social Worker in adult Social Services Mental Health and Substance Misuse teams.  This has given me a good understanding of the stresses and pressure of working within the caring profession; and an empathic understanding of people’s needs 

My Story

I used to work in the customer service industry but knew that I wanted to be a therapist after my own experience of personal therapy.  I came into this field, after becoming a parent made me revaluate the direction my life was going in.  I am passionate about what I do, so I continue to develop my knowledge around psychological methods.  I am a Mental Health First Aider and Gravity Yoga Instructor, so mental well-being, mindfulness and self-care is something I practice and encourage others to prioritise.
