Hi, I am Sarah, a fully qualified person-centred counsellor based near Morpeth in Northumberland. I offer a variety of sessions to suit your counselling needs and I work from my garden room which overlooks the woodland beyond.
I understand all too well that coming to a counsellor for the first time can feel quite daunting. My clients are my priority so I strive to provide a relaxing escape for my clients whether that be in face to face or walk & talk sessions, or by convenient zoom and telephone sessions. My work is non-directive in nature. I will be your quiet companion whilst you explore your concerns in a safe therapeutic space.
I am qualified to help people with anxiety, depression, trauma, post natal depression, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, domestic violence and abuse.
Sessions are 50 minutes per week. (Free initial 20 minute consultation).
Free private parking.
Accredited member of the National Counselling Society.
Training, qualifications & experience
Level 5 Foundation Degree in Counselling.
Accredited Registrant member of the National Counselling Society.
I have also completed the Foundation for Pregnancy & Infant loss training.
With an emergency services background, I have worked with all manner of client issues ranging from domestic violence and substance misuse to issues relating to traumatic events and family problems. I also have a special interest in pregnancy and infant loss. I have worked with clients aged 16 upwards and have a commitment to safeguarding my clients as a priority.

Testimony from a previous client says:
"Sarah has personally helped me get to the root of issues I had that I thought I had already dealt with, and helped me to see life in a totally different way. She has a beautiful way of being present with you as a client and really does 'hear' what you have to say. I would very highly recommend this service to any and everyone". Sarah B, client review.
