Sarah Murray - Moment by Moment Counselling
I am a fully qualified Person Centred Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. I have always loved to help people and I have ten years experience within a therapeutic environment (detailed below).
I am born and bred in Edinburgh and have never strayed too far, I really do love it here and feel at home. I believe I am a kind, gentle, caring person and this shines throughout my work and personal life. Having a good sense of humour, not only allows me to laugh often but can also be particularly helpful in difficult times.
Working with a wide variety of clients has shown me how fragile life can be and the difficulties it can unknowingly throw at us, no matter what our circumstances. Whatever concerns you want to bring to counselling, please feel reassured that I will listen with an open mind and without judgement.
My private practice, Moment by Moment Counselling, provides both short term and long term Person Centred Counselling to South Queensferry, Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife.
Clients are guaranteed to receive:
- Sessions with a fully qualified, experienced and friendly Therapist
- A safe space to reflect and explore their feelings
- Acceptance to go at their own pace, sharing only what they feel comfortable
- Non-judgemental, open and understanding treatment
- No pressure to book further sessions
At Moment by Moment Counselling the aim is that you will leave each session feeling listened to, cared for and valued, truly for being you.
