Sara Bruce-Vanderpuye BA(Hons) Registered MBACP
Even when life feels overwhelming and lacking clarity, I believe with the right support in a safe, non-judgemental environment you can begin to understand and make sense of how you are feeling.
I am a fully qualified BACP Registered Counsellor working in the Surbiton/Kingston area. As an integrative-relational counsellor I use a range of therapeutic approaches to meet individual needs.
Deciding to see a counsellor and making that first contact can be a huge step. My aim is to offer emotional support in a safe and confidential environment where you can share your thoughts, feelings and concerns in as much detail as you wish.
I believe that the quality of the relationship between counsellor and client is at the heart of the healing process. A counselling session can give you the opportunity to reconnect, identify your difficulties and find new ways to move on to live your life with more ease and joy.
