Sarah Hnatyszyn BA (Hons) MBACP
Hi, I'm Sarah. I'm a person-centred counsellor, and I’m passionate about raising the profile of mental health and mental health support. Unfortunately, often people feel embarrassed or ashamed when reaching out for counselling, but I want my clients to feel comfortable, safe and heard when they come and see me. Our mental health is just as important as our physical health, and they are linked much more closely than people sometimes realise, so it is important that we value mental health support as much as going to the gym, eating healthily or seeing the GP.
I’ve been a fully qualified counsellor since 2012 and have worked with lots of children, young people and adults across the region, with issues including bereavement, anxiety, depression, abuse, abandonment, self-esteem, relationship difficulties, loss, sexuality and gender issues. Prior to being a counsellor, I worked as a Family Support Worker and I have delivered therapeutic training to a range of people. I strongly believe in the core conditions of the person-centred approach - empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard - and strive to help clients grow and make positive changes at their pace. We will work together to help you make those positive changes and I won’t pressure you to talk about anything you are not ready to talk about. My upmost aim is that you feel safe and accepted in the counselling room.
I work from a lovely, quiet and comfortable therapy room in the centre of Scunthorpe, with free parking at nearby car parks. I’m currently available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, plus all day on Fridays. Please feel free to call, text or email me for more information if you are thinking of trying counselling. We can set up an initial session and you can then decide if you would like to pursue the counselling. There is no obligation and you are not expected to commit to a particular number of sessions; we can book them session by session.

Sessions are £35.00 (60 minutes). I would suggest weekly sessions initially but we can agree this between us. If you’re not sure if counselling is definitely for you, we can book an initial session (£20 for approximately 30 minutes) and you can decide once you have more information if you’d like to go ahead. There is no pressure to book a block of sessions; we can book them as we go.
