Sarah (SJ) Bolton-Locke
Welcome to A Space 2 Be, I am a therapeutic practitioner, supporting both adults and young people's mental health in Gloucestershire.
A Space 2 Be provides a safe and welcoming environment to either seek support in counselling, creative expression, therapeutic training, mental health support, or for more specialised gender, LGBTQ+, and identity guidance. In present times, I am also currently supporting people to manage their stress and anxiety, coping with the effects of the global pandemic, Covid 19.
You can find more information about therapeutic 1-1 sessions and training workshops for adults and young people on each page. I am a director for Creative Change Makers, which is a community interest business, offering therapeutic mental health courses that encourage creative wellness.

What people say
Amanda, School Support
Sarah brings calm energy that has made the children feel very relaxed, she has really supported a family through a traumatic time and helped the children come to terms with the changes
Lottie, Adult Counselling
I have been working with Sarah for just under a year, she has supported me to take steps that I didn't think were possible, my confidence has really grown in this time
Tim, LGBTQ Counselling
I needed someone to talk to that wouldn't judge me. Sarah gave me a space to express how I fell about my gender and this has helped me make sense of my feelings and just be me
