Sara Duffy Dip.Couns. Registered Member MBACP
Muswell Hill, London
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor willing to help you explore any problems you are facing in your life. I offer a supportive, safe and confidential setting in which I can help you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your relationships, and to develop the skills to take control of your life.
I follow an integrative approach, which means that I draw from the psychodynamic and person-centered traditions within counselling. In practice this means that I believe in the importance of establishing a working relationship in which my clients feel safe and listened to, without judgement. I am also interested in exploring the influence of childhood and the earliest relationships. Each individual is unique and my approach is very much led by you, and the issues you bring to me.
When you first contact me (by phone or e-mail) we can arrange a day and time to meet. The first session will be an assessment for us to discuss what your needs are and the reasons for you seeking counselling. If at the end of this session you feel comfortable for us to work together, we will meet at the same time each week and sessions are 50 minutes. I offer short and long term work and we can decide together what will suit your needs.
