Sandra Bøjen-Taylor is a psychotherapist who runs an established business in the area called Bcalm. Sandra steps in to Orchard Barn to work with us offering workshops, support groups and courses alongside our team of experts.
In 2002 Sandra completed accredited counselling and psychotherapy courses of the highest calibre over a 5 year period in order to start practicing in the field. Over 16 years she has worked therapeutically with young people and adults at the Youth Service, for the mental health charity Mind, Grimsby & Cleethorpes IAPT Service Open Minds and as student and staff counsellor at a busy FE & HE College in Scunthorpe. She is currently a group therapist for Breast Cancer Care UK working with women with secondary breast cancer from the Grimsby, Cleethorpes, Scunthorpe, Hull and Lincoln areas and with private 1-1 clients. She is also registered with Trauma Aid UK – as a volunteer to provide therapeutic support to victims of terror attacks, atrocities and natural disasters.
In 2011 she invested further in her work and completed a Masters Degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy with Distinction. This equipped her with knowledge about current and cutting edge research in the field and enabled her to work with new concepts in her client work. She has a wealth of experience working with a diverse range of clients and issues. She has been a BACP Registered Counsellor since 2000. She practices Integrative Psychotherapy which means she is experienced in working with several approaches. She draws from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Narrative, Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt and Mindfulness theories. She is also a fully qualified EMDR therapist – an amazing and innovative therapy (the most thoroughly researched method used in the treatment of trauma) which has successfully helped millions of people with a wide range of mental health problems as well as PTSD.
