Welcome to Counselling in Guildford

Perhaps you are feeling confused, isolated, alone, unable to cope, or worried about a situation or feelings that you are having?

You might be feeling unsure of what to do, but perhaps talking will help?

Or, you could be someone who knows you'd like to make a change, but are unsure of where to start?

You could be someone who has undertaken counselling before and is looking for another counsellor to work with this time round?

I offer a Humanistic counselling service in Burpham, Guildford, Surrey- specialising in grief/bereavement; trauma and addiction therapy. However, I have a very wide experience; visit my Skills page for all the issues I have worked with.

You can attend your therapy session in a comfortable, private room at my home in Burpham; Monday to Thursday daytime or evening. Or, you could choose to have telephone or Skype session.

Counselling can help a lot of people:

You need a bit of extra help to solve a problem or make changes in your life.

You feel it could be useful to get someone's perspective on things who is objective, understanding and who will not judge you, someone who isn't a family member or close friend.

You want some space and time to explore your feelings, make some sense of them in a way you haven't before.

I am committed and passionate to offer you just that; to understand you and your experience of life and help you find the solution that best suits you.

Counselling may not suit everyone, but most people benefit from having time and space to reflect on their life and what they want to change.


  • From 'K, Guildford'

    I sought therapy from Sara to meet the requirements of my training as a counsellor. I didn't have any particular problems and did not know what to expect or what I had to gain. I found that Sara's warmth, understanding and acute sensitivity enabled me to connect with deep feelings I did not know I had and enabled me to make much better sense of myself. My life is richer as a result. It has been a very rewarding experience, which I would recommend to anyone.

    From 'R, Guildford'

    When I first started counselling, I couldn't see that I would ever get "better". I had so many long standing and deep rooted issues that I felt as if I was so different from everyone else, I couldn't overcome them and be happy like I thought everyone else was. Further on, I have learnt that everyone is unique and if they can be true to themselves and follow their heart and head then they can live a pretty happy life.

    'Normal' doesn’t exist. Counselling has been a lengthy process, and at times I have found my progress too slow. But, Sara has supported me, challenged me and kicked me into touch (when required) every step of the way and I can honestly say that I have greater peace of mind and quality of life because of the work we have done together. And it is work! Nothing worthwhile is ever easy.

    My sessions with Sara helped me explore and process the most difficult time of my life, in the safest and most supportive space imaginable. I am indebted to Sara for her expertise, warmth and professionalism and am so grateful to be now free from the PTSD symptoms I had been suffering on a daily basis .
