It’s Never Too Late for a New Beginning. Hi, I’m Sarah - Life can present us with many personal challenges. Do you feel anxious, lonely or depressed? Burnt-out or overwhelmed? Do you feel unheard or unable to express your needs in your relationships with your partner, family, friends or colleagues? Perhaps you experience increasing climate anxiety? Maybe you are not sure what it is, but something doesn’t feel quite right? We all need help at some time to work through things and more. I understand that taking that first step to seek help can be hard - but the rewards can be great.
As a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I offer a confidential, non-judgmental and safe space to talk. I use an integrative approach which draws on various counselling techniques tailored to your individual needs.

Together we explore learning more about yourself and self growth!

I listen with genuine empathy, my goal is to help you unburden from the pain you are carrying and see true healing and transformation in your most vulnerable and precious inner parts.

I use EMDR amongst other approaches. I think I am warm, empathic, approachable and down to earth and it is important to me that you feel comfortable and safe. We work out your goals and a pathway toward them together.
My oh my life can be a big ol’ mess sometimes! I hear you, sometimes things just get way too overwhelming and it’s hard to get unstuck. Maybe you’re dealing with depressive thoughts, feeling too anxious to do anything or trying to figure out what you really want out of life. Or it could be you’re not vibing with your friends, romantic partner or butting heads with certain family members. It can be rough dealing with all that stuff and being a teenager or young adult in this world isn’t easy.

All people of all ages can experience difficult times in their life. These may have been caused by an event that has caused distress, issues with family, friendships, relationships, the work place, health issues and countless other situations. Sometimes events have happened long ago and continue to trouble us and impact our life, or the situation may be more recent. It can be difficult to share what is happening. Often we don't want to burden or worry those who care for us; or we may feel uncomfortable talking to people we know. Counselling provides support toward finding resolutions and living life in the best way possible.
I offer clients a confidential, non-judgemental, safe space to express their concerns. My counselling approach is individual, drawing on various techniques to suit the needs of the client. I have substantial experience in the areas of loss and grief. This incorporates not only death, but also health issues, relationships, ageing, life changes, pet bereavement, depression and anxiety. During Sessions with a qualified therapist you can explore the causes of anxiety, depression and stress. Working together, talking through feelings such as anger, guilt and grief can bring about feelings of relief, and provide a sense of calm.
My clients are people just like you; stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, or in a life transition. No one understands or really gets what you're going through. You support everyone else and do all the right things. Somewhere in the mix you lost your connection with yourself and now realise your needs and emotions could do with some attention. You are interested in learning new skills or strategies, and/or would like more clarity, meaning and sense of purpose. You would love to have a full cup to pour from, be able to refill your cup regularly, and have your needs met, and to process your emotions effectively.
Dealing with personal issues can feel overwhelming. Are you experiencing relationship or family problems, personal issues such as anxiety, depression, loss of a loved one, low self esteem? Some people, especially men, find it difficult to ask for help. It is ok and a positive think to ask for help. Counselling enables you to talk through your problems and find practical strategies to manage or relieve your symptoms, and make positive changes in your life to move forward with confidence.
