Sara Sukhija MBACP Reg
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor with the belief that everyone has the ability to grow and reach their potential and lead happy and fulfilling lives. At times life can be difficult and we can feel lost, helpless or distressed. The aim of counselling is to provide you with a confidential, supportive, non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings in safety and assist your healing, understanding and growth.
I have worked with a range of issues, from people that have suffered with anxiety, depression, abuse, bereavement, stress, infertility, post-traumatic stress disorder, trust, self-esteem and addictions.
The name of my practice is Mind Focus Counselling. To me this represents growth, strength, focus, hope and new beginnings. At Mind Focus Counselling, I offer short term focused counselling and long term in-depth counselling depending on your needs. I also offer some low cost therapy depending on availability and am happy to accommodate shift workers.
If you are interested in discussing what you want out of counselling, please contact me. I aim to reply to all enquiries within 24 hours.
