I am ready to listen, to find out what you want from counselling, and to be alongside you while you contemplate life changes. I am happy to answer your questions about how I work if you would like to email or call me.

Perhaps you feel lost, ungrounded, unable to understand your emotional way of being and always seem to be at conflict with yourself and others in your life. Perhaps you suffer from anxiety, stress, OCD, addictions, lack of self-worth. Perhaps you are grieving a loss of a loved one, relationship break-up or a job. In these times of stress and anxiety, one needs to find one’s inner core strength to be able to be fully grounded and able to fully move into life with clarity and focus. With my counselling skills and our teamwork, you can become the person you were born to be.

Hi, I'm Sandra and I help people with high anxiety and low self esteem to feel BETTER! Having one or both of these inter-related conditions can be very frustrating. Perhaps you don't believe you are worthy of happiness, success or love. Low self worth can suck the colour from your life, leaving you feeling empty, disconnected and worthless. You might feel undervalued, lonely and disempowered. It does NOT have to be this way. What if you COULD feel better about who you are? Less anxious and more hopeful about the future? Hypnotherapy could help you to identify and change unhelpful subconscious beliefs and move on - FAST!

I know how difficult it can be to make a change and to start therapy. Some of us are not used to asking for help, perhaps we tell ourselves that we’re not worth anyone’s time. Or perhaps there is something that has been unspoken for a long time. If you are looking for your children then it can be so difficult to know who is best suited to help them through their issues. For all those looking for counselling I will try to make the first steps easy by offering a free half an hour to talk over the phone to discuss your needs. If we agree on making a start (short-term or open ended), we can move through the sessions at your pace.

I work from the premise that you have the answers you need within yourself. It may not seem this way right now, if you are lost or overwhelmed, but i explore this premise by listening with respect and no judgment. Sometimes just feeling heard can help to understand and value yourself. From there you may want to explore together with me: your patterns, your thinking or your way of being. You may not feel like exploring anything. You may just want to let out your distress with another human being. I am here for this. I believe this is a powerful step to take.

I hope to help you to experience a fuller and deeper understanding and acceptance of yourself, which will help you to discover your own path forward through life's challenges. I am passionate about working safely with trauma, and believe that unresolved trauma creates blocks to living the full and flowing life that each of us deserves.

"In the heart of difficulty we can find our deepest potential." Are you suffering or feeling blocked in certain areas of your life, somehow know or just hope that things could be different, yet fear opening up to explore that? This is not a sign of failure or weakness – it is simply part of what it means to be human. Living in a body in the world is not easy and we inevitably find ourselves hurt and injured. Counter-intuitively, if we attend to those inner wounds and difficulties we find that some of our deepest gifts and capacities are lying hidden or dormant in those places. That is the secret of the journey of healing in therapy.

Maybe you are experiencing stress or a ‘stuckness’; feelings of anxiety, uncertainty and overwhelm; perhaps you are living with a recent or past loss or relationship difficulties; or is it that a lack of purpose or direction in life is dragging you down?

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
