About On Track Life Skills
My name is Sally Crittall.
I am a qualified counsellor / psychotherapist and supervisor. I gained my Diploma as an Integrative Counsellor in 2007 after studying at Stockport College, Manchester, and am a Registered Member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and a Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine, London.
I work with people from all walks of life on a wide variety of issues. I help them gain a better perspective, regain focus and direction whilst developing greater self-awareness and confidence by offering counselling and life coaching. Creating a deeper self-belief enables people to examine their life in a way that opens the door to new goals and potentially creative life changes.
Issues for Counselling / Psychotherapy
There is a wide variety of issues which I use psychotherapy to treat, including
Stress, Anxiety and Depression
Addiction, especially Alcoholism
Online Sex / Pornography
Trangender / gender dysphoria
Bereavement, Redundancy, Retirement or other Loss
How Counselling Works
Counselling aims to provide the opportunity to explore, discover and clarify ways of living more resourcefully and confidently, giving you a greater sense of well-being. It will give you space to work through difficult issues you may be experiencing. Sharing difficulties with someone in a non-judgmental, confidential environment will enable you to make sense of things, often resulting in positive changes, new perspectives and positive growth.
My role is one of honest companionship, to stick with you through thick and thin, without judgement, in complete trust and confidence. It is not a role which involves giving advice like perhaps family and friends might do. I believe in and respect each person’s individuality and I work on the basis that you have all the skills already in you to achieve your goals: I am alongside you to draw out, and work with your potential.
I offer an Integrative approach to counselling, which means that I draw upon different approaches such as transactional analysis, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), person-centred therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to best serve the needs of each individual client.
Counselling can equip you with better life skills and you will have the opportunity to gain a better/deeper understanding of how some of your thinking and/or behaviours may have developed.
Sessions are usually offered weekly, in my consulting room, for one hour, though it is sometimes possible to offer counselling over the telephone. Please feel free to ask for that if you would prefer it. During the first meeting we will discuss your expectations, what you hope to achieve and what I can offer you. It is also important to get to know each other so that you can decide if you are comfortable working with me.
The number of sessions needed varies from person to person and this would be discussed during the initial meeting. Reviews are built in to look at any progress made.
Where we are
Our consulting rooms are in our house on a quiet estate in South Normanton, at the end of a cul-de-sac. Parking on the road is not a problem. Access involves either five steps up to the front door or a walk round to the back door, with a shallow step over the threshold.
The standard fee is £45 per one-hour session, though in certain circumstances this can be negotiated – please feel free to raise this in your first call to us.
