Sarah Lewin - Counselling for Anxiety, depression, panic attacks, fears & phobia
Face to Face sessions are available if government guidelines allow.
I work with you in a client focused approach. Using tools, techniques & exercises I have learnt over my 20 years as a therapist. I work in a way that may be different to other Counsellors. Integrating creative imagery, neuro linguistic programming, hypnotherapy and Mindfulness as appropriate. We can create change in a timescale that may be more advantageous than just talking alone.
As we discuss your issues, looking on past events that have brought you to the therapy room today, we can then consider where you see yourself in the future, looking at your goals & dreams & how they might become a reality in your future. For me, this is what the therapy is all about. I will provide a confidential, supportive and open space which allows you to understand and express the parts of you that you may not have considered before.
The focus of all this is on healing, growth & change, so if you feel that you are ready to embrace it and let go of the past than I will be there for you and show you the way, supporting you at all times.
If anxiety is preventing you from living the life you want? If you feel stuck, lost, trapped, and can't find a solution. Then I can show you why you are experiencing these feelings, what is happening in your physiology when you experience these feelings and how you can gain more control.
Do you experience panic attacks, fears and/or phobias? We can use relaxation techniques & creative imagery to give you more control over these feelings.
If you have been having feeling down, depressed, lacking confidence and low self esteem, and low mood, you may be feeling that something is missing and that your life hasn't borne the fruits you had hoped, or that certain needs are not being met. Do you feel yourself avoiding social contact with others, or avoiding putting yourself in new, unknown situations?
Do you wish you could just feel normal, and enjoy your life?
You don't have to accept that you will always feel this way. I can guarantee you will not always feel this way and I can help you to start feeling much better real soon.
I can help and support you to find your freedom from feelings of intense anxiety, depression and low self esteem.
When we stop searching externally for happiness but instead look to have a better relationship with ourselves then true contentment shall prevail.
You do not need to carry this by yourself. If you are willing to make the changes, and move towards a more positive future, I can help and support you on your journey.
“We cannot change, we cannot move away from what we are, until we thoroughly accept what we are. Then change seems to come about almost unnoticed.” – Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person
