Sara Riseborough MSc, CTA, UKCP
FREE INTRODUCTORY SESSION - I offer a safe confidential space to explore feelings, thoughts and behaviour within a non-judgemental therapeutic relationship. I believe in working creatively to support each individual to find appropriate solutions to suit their own needs and preferences.
I offer an integrative approach which means that I use a variety of different methods and insights, including looking at significant past relationships to help you understand your life better and enable you to explore what is troubling you.
I am a fully qualified and experienced psychotherapist and counsellor and work in private practice at home in Ringwood on the edge of the New Forest.
I am fully insured and have regular supervision. I work to the ethical guidelines of UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and EATA (European Association for Transactional Analysis).
I offer a free 30 minute initial session with no obligation to commit to further sessions. This offers an opportunity for us to meet and provides the space needed to find out a little more about each other and to decide if it is appropriate and feels right to work together.
Please note: I am currently only offering online counselling due to the current coronavirus

Areas of counselling I deal with
I see adult individuals usually on a once a week basis for short or long term counselling.
£50 per 50 minute session
Initially I offer a free 30 minute introductory session in which we talk about the difficulties that are being experienced to see whether the type and frequency of counselling I offer is going to be of benefit.
