Welcome to Balance Counselling

Hello and thank-you for visiting my website. My name is Chris Sansom and I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP Accred.). Balance Counselling is my private counselling practice and I work with both individuals and couples/groups experiencing a range of different issues.

I have over 20 years’ experience of working with different client groups facing a range of different issues and I work with an integrative approach to therapy that draws from different theories.

With every client that I work with my intention is to provide an opportunity for them to explore aspects of themselves that may be painful or uncomfortable in a safe and non-judgemental atmosphere where all information is treated with the utmost respect and confidentiality. I view counselling as a partnership where I strive to provide the conditions for a client to gain a greater understanding of whatever issue may be having an impact on their wellbeing.

I hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and qualified with distinction. I also hold various other qualifications up to Masters (M.A) level.

I work with adults and young people and couples/groups in private practice and meet with supervisees from a range of professional backgrounds.

I provide both short-term and longer-term therapy according to the needs of the client.

I work in a relational way with clients addressing issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues and other psychological issues.

I love my work and genuinely enjoy meeting with clients in a partnership that seeks to allow clients to find meaning and resolution with whatever issue they may be experiencing.

I recognise that finding a counsellor and booking that first appointment can feel overwhelming and there are many therapists to choose from! I believe that it is important that you feel you have chosen the right counsellor for you – please feel able to call, message or email me for a chat to discover if I am the right therapist for you. I look forward to hearing from you
