I sincerely believe that everyone should have the opportunity of leading happy and fulfilled lives, feeling confident and secure to enjoy their life to the full.

Are you looking to break free from feelings of:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Overwhelm
  • Low self-esteem

As an experienced Emotional Therapeutic Counsellor and NLP coach, I can help you transform how you feel and help you gain back a sense of calm.

About Me

My name is Sarah Cunliffe and I am the Founder of True Freedom. Over the past ten years, I have helped hundreds of clients from all walks of life overcome a wide range of barriers to help them lead happier and healthier lives.

Every day, I work on a 1:1 basis or a corporate setting with individuals just like you to feel happy, calm, in control, confident, assured in who they are, motivated, energetic, more healthy, sexy, successful, peaceful and with a clear sense of their meaning and purpose, feeling fulfilled in every aspect of their lives including their relationships.

It's life-changing and the results are permanent.

My clinics are based in the heart of Bristol and in London’s prestigious medical district, Harley Street; where I support clients both online and in-person, using a diverse toolkit of well-established strategies and techniques.

I firmly believe that no one should live their lives feeling troubled or incomplete. Using a blend of therapies, you will:

  • Feel happier with a sense of calm and control
  • Embrace life and live it to the full
  • Attract fulfilling relationships and enjoy opportunities to socialise
  • Become more focused on your priorities and have the confidence to make plans for the future
  • Discover your own sense of meaning and purpose in life
  • Feel comfortable in your own skin
  • Heal yourself and your life following loss

How Can I Help You?

Investing in your own mental health and wellbeing is a commitment that may seem an overwhelming process. Where or how to start can often be some of the biggest hurdles when considering seeking help.

As an established professional counsellor and psychologist, I use contextual counselling and problem-solving processes in order to listen, understand and help you find ways to feel better in a non-judgemental and safe environment.

Your therapy sessions are unique to you; they are structured at a pace that you are comfortable with, and the number of sessions will vary depending on your personal circumstances.

My services include:

  • Depression Counselling
  • Anxiety Counselling
  • Anger Management
  • Bereavement and Grief Counselling
  • Relationship and Divorce Counselling
  • Emptiness or Aloneness Counselling
  • Not Feeling Good Enough
  • Wholeness

Working collaboratively together, I will encourage you to take ownership of your counselling process which in turn will help you begin to regain a sense of calm and direction.

The three core pillars to how I work with you are based on honesty, integrity and trust.

Areas in Life I Can Help With

Around one in four of us will experience mental health problems at some point in our lifetime. These may occur as short isolated periods of time, but equally can span much longer-term and affect us for a considerable amount of time.

I have worked with clients across a diverse spectrum of issues to achieve:

  • Enjoying life to the full
  • Finding their true ‘authentic self’, feeling freer and more joyful
  • Embrace and enjoy ‘alone time’
  • Feel greater contentment and desire in relationships
  • Attracting a soulmate
  • Smile more, feel replenished and healthier
  • Restore emotional health and balance following childhood trauma

I Love to Share What My Client’s Say:

Receiving positive feedback from my clients is one of the highest compliments I can receive and I am hugely proud and honoured to have helped so many people. My clients will often describe me as:

  • Capable
  • Intelligent
  • Approachable
  • Professional
  • Honest
  • A good listener

My passion is helping empower you in overcoming any fears or doubts and turning your hopes into reality:

‘I felt like a bit of a fraud when I first came to see you as there was nothing majorly wrong however through your care and consideration, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from me and I can get on with my life. It was fantastic to come and share thoughts, feelings, fears with someone who was just ‘so human’. Just wanted to say a huge Thanks.’ – Female – 30’s

‘Sarah, I cannot thank you enough for the skilled, compassionate and progressive way you have helped me over the last months. I have been using and will continue to use all the strategies you taught me – I know they work and allow me to be me.’– Male – 30’s

‘Connecting with Sarah over the last 6 months has been an absolute godsend - her approach immediately put me at ease and her ability to flex her approach to my needs opened me up to exploring a number of new approaches which I would not have previously considered. Would absolutely recommend!’ – Male - 50’s

‘I found Sarah at a time in my life when I felt I had to overcome issues related to self-esteem and isolation that have been going on for years. From the very first session, I felt I could open up to her and she could help me. She walked me through the process and made me feel at ease. She is an incredibly skilled and professional therapist, and at the same time approachable and friendly. With her guidance, I understood the patterns and events that led to my issues. It was a painful process but having Sarah’s guide and cheer for me made it much more bearable. We've only worked together for a few months but the difference it has made to my life is hard to put into words - I feel transformed. I am beyond grateful to have found her - and always looked forward to our sessions. Even in the most vulnerable and painful moments, I felt safe and in good hands. I highly recommend working with Sarah - the results are amazing!’ - Female – 20’s

I’m afraid of opening up Pandora’s Box – How will I cope?

Taking your first steps in therapy can feel daunting, this is a very common feeling and one that is shared by many of my clients.  However, they often find by opening up and talking in a safe and confidential environment, they start to feel a shift of control along with a sense of freedom sharing previously suppressed feelings.

Can I really do this? Are you experienced enough to support me?

100%. Although you bring unique and personal experiences to your sessions, the feelings you may be struggling with are not. I am a highly and qualified Counsellor and Psychologist and bring with me a decade’s worth of experience and have successfully worked with over a thousand patients during this time. 

Are Online sessions as effective as in-clinic appointments? Will I get the same out of our sessions?

Online sessions provide so many benefits to my clients.  Firstly, the sessions can fit in around your schedule without the need for you to commute or suffer from the related stresses that travel can bring. This flexibility can provide great benefits to you and your routine.  Each session is still planned around your bespoke needs, so from a delivery point of view, there is no difference.  The added benefit of being able to send you a recording of our weekly sessions together also allows you time to further reflect with play-backs if you wish.  My clients often find these a great resource as part of their preparation for our next sessions.  I use end to end encrypted video software which provides us with a safe and secure online meeting space.
