About Sara


About Sara #01

I believe that strength comes from within, and that we all have the ability to change given the right conditions and motivation. Reflection and a better understanding of ourselves in relation to others, are essential tools in making changes however small or large.

Everyone is unique and I work on the principle that "you are the expert on you " but at times of distress or difficulty, you may lose sight of this. This is where counselling can help you to acheive a more positive outlook and a greater understanding.

I will help and encourage you to explore difficult issues and problems in a supportive, safe, non-judgemntal and confidential environment.

As well as running my private practice I work as a mentor for Surrey County Council supporting young people with a wide range of difficulties and challenges.


I have also worked in:

  • The Financial Services sector for 15 years developing and counselling management at all levels.

  • I have supported and assisted staff during, and at risk of, redundancy and grievance procedures.

  • I have been involved with recruitment and redundancy in both the Private and Public Sector.

  • Due to my business background I have an understanding of the pressure and stresses of working in these types of environment.

  • I have been involved on a voluntary basis for a Surrey mentoring programme aiding troubled teenagers transitioning to adulthood.

  • I have volunteered on a 24hr support line for men and women experiencing domestic violence.

  • In addition to my counselling practice I haved worked for over 7 years in the public sector assisting families with special needs.
