About me

Hello, my name is Sarah Cunliffe and I am a London Harley Street recognised Emotional Therapeutic Counsellor - Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society, Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) Registered and a fully qualified experienced NLP Practitioner all in one. I am the author of three mental health books, and the owner of True Freedom an online counselling practice for 1:1 private clients and for the corporate market. 

Are you experiencing anxiety all the time? Suffering from depression? Never feel Good enough? Nervous to go out? Relationship gone/going wrong?   Persistently unhappy? Anger management issues? Coping with bereavement? Low self-esteem? Confused? Ill health? Eating disorder? Family problems? Experiencing abuse? Can’t cope?

Emotional Therapeutic Counselling can help...

So what is Emotional Therapeutic Counselling?

Emotional Therapeutic Counselling is an interactive, creative, talking therapy for people who are suffering emotional turmoil in their lives, whether brought about by crisis, a long term situation, persistent unhappiness, depression, apathy or difficulties in relating to others. Emotional Therapeutic Counselling holds the belief that emotional wellbeing is a key to a happy fulfilling life.

How can Emotional Therapeutic Counselling help?

A key aspect of Emotional Therapeutic Counselling is the range of techniques and creative tools that can be used to assist you to both recognise and release painful feelings in an appropriate manner, by working with your emotions rather than your mind.

The therapeutic counselling goes at your pace and the numbers of sessions will vary according to your needs. Emotional Therapists are trained to a very high standard and subscribe to a Code of Conduct which provides a commitment to ongoing training and supervision, you can find out more by visiting my website.

I particularly specialise in working with clients suffering with Depression, anxiety and shame (a feeling of never being good enough) but also have special training in Trauma & PTSD recovery and working with adults who are survivors of abuse both as adults and also in childhood. I also often work with the clients who also have ADHD and as I have ADD myself often find I can help with ways to help some of their symptoms and organisational needs as well.

Getting in touch...

If you feel you might benefit from Emotional Therapy/Counselling and want to know more about it then feel free to get in touch with me. You can call me on 0203 693 3925 or email me to arrange a confidential chat.

It is important for you to find a therapeutic counsellor you feel comfortable with and I offer an initial consultation (20-30 minutes) free so we can meet in person and you can ask any questions you may have to help you make the right choice for you. Therapy sessions generally last one hour. I provide full 50 minute online sessions using online Zoom video calls which is free of charge and you can easily download the basic Zoom software in a couple of minutes. It costs nothing to use and I will talk you through everything you need to download it and answer a video call from me. The picture and sound are vastly supervisor to Skype but I am happy to speak to clients on WhatsApp/Zoom or Skype - whichever way is most convenient for you. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am known as a safe pair of hands with over 12 years of experience and have the Advanced Diploma in Emotional Therapeutic Counselling from the Foundation for Emotional Therapeutic Counselling which qualifies me to practice and to teach.  I also supervise other counsellors and have training in and experience of working with Victims of Abuse. I am particularly experienced in the areas of toxic shame, collapsing clinical depression, social anxiety, imposter syndrome, perfectionism deep trauma, PTSD.

I am also recognised as an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society and a registered member of BACP. 

 I am also a certified NLP Practitioner - NLP is great for letting go of trauma, PTSD, getting rid of unwanted habits and limiting beliefs.

I currently work full time online Worldwide and I am registered with a Harley Street Online platform.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
