Welcome - How can I help you?

I am an experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor, therefore, I understand that therapy is often the first opportunity you might have had to talk to someone who is not part of your family or a friend. Psychotherapy and Counselling, can offer a way in which you can explore issues face to face with a professional practitioner and this is where I offer a supportive, non-judgmental and confidential space to do that. I have helped many of my clients to explore and understand many difficult issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, relationships, feeling sad, panic disorder, family issues, infertility, separation & divorce, post-natal depression or bereavement.

I usually suggest an initial session, here in my counselling room in Finchley, N3, where we explore key issues or relationships that you might wish to address during your time in therapy. During this initial meeting we would look at any concerns you may have about therapy. This provides me with an idea of what you are hoping for from therapy and allows you to ask me any questions you might have, regarding the way in which I work with my clients and how I can help you. After the initial session, we would meet weekly, usually at the same time and day of the week, for a 50 minute session, but this can be flexible and I am happy to work around your schedule. I am also available if you wish to have just a few sessions for immediate help during a crisis, whilst allowing you to decide if you would like to enter into therapy for a longer period of time.

I work with each client " to help you to understand your own life and hopefully to live it in a way that is right for you"

Why are you considering counselling? - Anxiety, Depression or Relationship issues

Struggling with our feelings or with patterns of behaviour is a part of life, that can make you feel sad. You might be having difficulty in avoiding painful feelings and experiences but you can choose how to deal with them. Counselling can help you in trying to understand how to respond to your own life experiences. Psychotherapy is particularly helpful when you are feeling stuck or overwhelmed and unable to make sense of these feelings. Seeking help with an experienced practitioner, means you are taking the first step to a more positive outlook and better future. I have many years of experience in working with my clients in using both Psychotherapy or Counselling, for issues such as - anxiety, depression, stress, anger, feeling sad, relationship issues, separation, infidelity and divorce.

Are you looking for couples or relationship counselling?

Couples Counselling

Relationship or couples counselling can be so effective if are you experiencing difficulties together as a couple - this can be particularly helpful when entering into a new relationship, during a marriage breakdown or if your relationship is coming to an end and are considering a divorce. I have experience in working with couples who would like to have counselling together. I am able to work with you and your partner if you are looking for a conclusion to a particular relationship issue for you both as a couple. I have experience in mediation between couples which can be helpful if you are stuck with a particular problem that you have been unable to resolve. Couples counselling within a relationship or marriage can be a really effective long term solution, if children are involved and is often the way forward to a better relationship between you both as couple and for your family.

"Whatever issue you choose to bring into the counselling room will be respected and explored sensitively, at your own pace"

Individual Counselling

Perhaps you are experiencing feeling sad or angry with a particular issue or relationship in your life, then counselling could be the way for you to address these problems. Counselling is particularly effective shorter length of treatment for anxiety or panic disorders that have become habitual or need immediate help with overcoming and can be addressed whilst offering you insight into your lifestyle and the challenges that it can create. These difficulties can be addressed whilst working together on how to improve upon these for better long term outcomes, leading to a happier and more fulfilled life. Psychotherapy and counselling, can be used to look in depth at issues from the past that are perhaps affecting you life in the present, creating anxiety and unhappiness. Therapy can help to bring about change which in turn can lead to long term resolution and clarity. It is a detailed way of helping you explore issues and relationships that are impacting upon your daily life that you feel you would like to change and will usually take time over some months or longer.

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor and have many years of experience in working with my clients and their issues that would offer them a positive change in their lives, during and after long term therapy.

Here are some recent client's own words about their experience of therapy with me -

"I honestly can't thank you enough Sarah, for being so understanding - it has made things much easier. You manage to make therapy feel far less clinical than it could be, from day one I have felt very relaxed in your presence. Whatever topic I have chosen to bring in , I have never felt overly nervous discussing it with you - this is not easily found in a therapeutic setting, so I know I am lucky"
Client X, 2019

I work with women who are experiencing specifically female concerns within their lives and relationships. Counselling for women's issues can be particularly useful for stay-at-home mothers and addresses feelings associated with isolation and lack of self-confidence both before and after having children. It can be useful to talk to someone about feelings of low self-esteem after bringing up a family, along with the possiblity of returning to the workplace in the future.

"I was at my lowest ebb, with zero self-confidence and didn't recognise or know myself anymore. As a stay at home mum I felt isolated and insignificant. I was very sceptical about seeking help, but it has proved to be the bravest decision I have made. Sarah was a safe haven of understanding and more importantly, she was really easy to talk to. Thank you Sarah" Client A, 2018

"I would just like to Thank You again, Sarah! You are fantastic and have helped me so much at a difficult time" Client B 2019
