How Can We 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.

Our established NLP practitioners, counselling and psychology professionals use contextual online counselling and problem-solving processes 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.

Our 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, we 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 we work with you are based on honesty, integrity and trust.

What Is it Like to Work with Us?

Each client’s journey through therapy is unique to them, however, the way your counsellor will support you will include:

  1. A 50-minute weekly session where we talk confidentially and work towards your goals.  We can do this safely and securely online.  Online consultations allow you to record some technique demonstrations for your reference later. 
  2. The sessions we formulate are centred around Therapeutic Counselling for trauma or Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) coaching.  The strategies we adopt with you will be tailored to meet your specific needs.
  3. Each session will also be delivered using interactive and creative talking therapy methods.
  4. To further support our clients, it may be appropriate with some counselling packages to supply you with further resources which complement your personal therapy.  These may include:
      1. A self-care journal
      2. Relevant books
      3. Additional self-care tools and techniques
      4. One extra 30-minute support call per month (available within 48 hours of request offered between Monday -Friday, 9 am – 5 pm)

Our 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 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 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 our 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. We are highly and qualified Counsellors and Psychologists who bring with us over a decade’s worth of experience and have successfully worked with thousands of 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 our 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 your weekly sessions also allows you time to further reflect with play-backs if you wish.  Our clients often find these a great resource as part of their preparation for their next session.  We use end to end encrypted video software which provides us with a safe and secure online meeting space.
