A Message from Sarah ...
"Based from my quiet and peaceful home which is within walking distance of Henley town centre and the railway station I offer daytime and early evening appointments.
Your initial consultation, which is free of charge, and will usually last approximately 30 minutes will allow us to explore counselling options and how comfortable we are with each other.
This is important as the counselling relationship must be based on mutual trust and values.
All sessions will be treated with the strictest confidence and you can rely on my absolute discretion."
Fees and Appointments
I cannot recommend Sarah enough, She was patient and comforting whilst I completely failed to get to the point of why I was seeking therapy. She worked with me to build my confidence until such time as I felt able to open up and really start to talk about my worries. Given that I had hidden my gender dysphoria for many years when the dam burst Sarah helped me work through my emotions and bring order to my thoughts. With her help I am starting to put myself back together. Sarah - Thank you so much.
