Sarah Lemiech BA (Hons) Counselling, Reg Mem BACP, ACTO
Hello, my name is Sarah and welcome to my page on the Counselling Directory. Please feel free to email, call, text or WhatsApp me with with any questions or thoughts you may have around counselling with me.
Just by looking at my page, you've made the first step to making the changes you want, and by thinking about coming into counselling, you are in reality looking and thinking about one of the most powerful forces for change. That is to be listened to and supported with understanding and empathy. By coming to see me, I will offer you a safe and confidential environment, where you can identify, shed light upon and deal with your reasons for coming to counselling. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
Together we can explore and reflect upon what you feel needs to change in your life. Together we can look at alternative ways of managing these thoughts, feelings and emotions, leading to greater self-knowledge and understanding of relationships not just with others, but importantly with yourself. Coming to counselling will be a rewarding and life changing experience. You do not have to struggle alone, I am here to help and support you.
Every relationship is unique, because you and your partner are unique, and coming to counselling will of course depend on your relationship, and the issues you and your partner are dealing with. Remember, your relationship with your partner will be one of the closest relationships you will have formed, and when problems occur within such an important relationship, the emotional, mental, physical and for many, spiritual distress experienced can become unbearable and isolating.
Whether you are in a new relationship, an established relationship, or perhaps your relationship is coming to an end, counselling can be very beneficial and supportive. By coming to see me, I will give you both the space to be able to explore your relationship. As your counsellor I am in the unique position of having no preconceived ideas of who you are as a couple, or how you should or should not be handling your relationship. What I will offer you both is a non-judgmental and safe space, where I will work with you both to find within yourselves the changes and resolutions you want for your relationship. Whether that is staying together or supporting you both to negotiate the end of your relationship, I will work with you both to explore what it is your relationship needs.
Online and Telephone Counselling
There may be many reasons why you are thinking about entering therapy, and particularly therapy online or by telephone. Difficulties with mobility, travelling or the pressures of work and family life can make it difficult to be able to commit to in person counselling. This is where online or telephone counselling with myself can make it convenient and accessible for you to access counselling, but without perhaps leaving the comfort of your home.

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.

I always try to be as flexible as I can for you, as I realise shift work etc can make attending counselling on the same day and time each week difficult.
My knowledge and skills have developed through my work in my private practice, as a bereavement counsellor and as a counsellor working with clients with physical disabilities and brain injuries. For me, there is always something new to learn from every client I meet and work with.
