About me and my therapy practice

Hi - my name is Sara, I'm a counsellor and therapist. I know how difficult it can feel to find the right therapist and I imagine you are finding it hard to deal with something that's troubling you at the moment. You wouldn't be here otherwise. Taking the first step to find the right therapist is sometimes the hardest.

I specialise in working with clients struggling with feelings of anxiety, anger and depression who have found it difficult to talk about their feelings in the past. The end of a relationship, the loss of a loved one, or issues at work can all give rise to difficult feelings. This can be especially hard for people who tend to avoid dealing with the emotional content of their lives.

I became a therapist because I have a passion for helping people cope with life's challenges, and for working with those who want more out of life. I'm a fully qualified counsellor with postgrads in counselling and psychology. I've worked with clients on a wide range of personal issues, from diverse backgrounds, and with very different reasons for being in therapy.

I believe everyone deserves to live a happy, fulfilled life. You've taken the first step in what can feel like a daunting journey, but perhaps you still feel hesitant. I'm happy to answer any questions by email or have a short call before booking in your first session.

If you're struggling  please don't be afraid to reach out. Some of the issues people have brought include trauma, abuse, divorce, suicidal thoughts, lack of confidence, stress, overwork, addiction, obsessive thoughts, difficult relationships, and issues at work.

Practice description

I believe therapy only works if you have a connection with your therapist. My approach is founded on building this relationship, through open acceptance, a warm, human connection and a genuine, authentic approach.

It's a place where you can feel secure, knowing you won't be judged or criticised. Together, we will work on examining different facets of yourself, considering how your past may have shaped you, and gradually delving into unexplored aspects of your life.

In our sessions, you'll have the chance to gain insights into your relationships, as well as understand the motivations behind your actions. Therapy can offer you the opportunity to be heard and supported, reduce anxiety, and discover your voice.

Our Journey Together:

During our time together, we'll identify and address habitual behaviours, seeking to understand why you engage in them and perhaps experiment with alternative approaches. It's a collaborative journey toward greater understanding and self-acceptance, allowing you to feel more complete and authentically yourself.

My first session

I believe that seeing a therapist should not add to your anxiety or stress levels - so I want to take the fear and mystery away from your first visit. With me you'll find a relaxed, open, warm therapist who holds no judgment, there to support you on your journey. 

Our first meeting will be a 30 minute chat online that is free of charge - we can then decide next steps together.
