During these difficult times when face to face is not available, I am offering counselling sessions from the comfort of your own home online (via Skype,Zoom,FaceTime) or by telephone.  I offer a free introductory session with no obligation.

About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I’m Sarah. Life can seem overwhelming at times, leaving us feeling anxious, sad, depressed or even traumatised. I provide a warm, safe and non judgemental space for you to explore the issues that are stopping you from making the most of your life, working together at a pace that suits you. 

I offer short and long term therapy to adults who come to counselling with issues such as relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, childhood abuse, rape, bereavement and low self-esteem. 

I have also worked for the last 2 years at a local charity in Poole supporting adults who suffer from the effects of emotional, physical and sexual childhood abuse. 

Practice description

I understand that it can be hard to open up and share your inner most thoughts and concerns with someone, especially with someone you don’t know.  We all have things on our minds that we feel we cannot raise, even with our closest family and friends. I provide a warm, friendly and safe environment to discuss these matters where you will not be judged.  You will find that even just being able to verbalise your thoughts can be very therapeutic.

Whatever is bringing you to counselling I believe that everyone is unique, every issue is different and we can discuss the best approach for your needs so you can get the best you can from our sessions. 

My first session

I believe it is important to find a therapist who you feel comfortable with.  I therefore offer a free initial appointment without obligation so that we can discuss your needs, to answer any questions you may have and for you to get a feel for our sessions.
