Hello, I'm Sarah
I am originally from the UK, but have been living, working and parenting globally since my late 20s. I’m currently living in Geneva, Switzerland.
As a counsellor, I enjoy providing the space and time for people to feel heard and understood, and – when they are ready – supported to create new patterns in their lives that will allow for lasting change and growth.
My therapeutic approach is focused on connecting our minds, hearts and bodies.
"The wound is the place where the light gets in"
Rumi, Ernest Hemingway, Leonard Cohen & Primal Scream all have versions of this quote, and I genuinely believe that the issues you bring to counselling can in the end make you stronger
What I offer
I offer professional, confidential counselling in English
I work with older adolescents, young adults and adults. I meet with people in person in my central Geneva office, online or on the telephone
People come to see me about:
Anxiety, low mood and depression
Grief, loss and bereavement
Difficult life transitions
Feeling hopeless or helpless
They come along with questions about their identity and true self and to work out what they truly want for themselves in life
Parent - Child Relationship Counselling
I meet with parents alone or sometimes with parents and children together. We meet in person or online
Parents come to see me when their parent - child relationship gets stuck in a pattern of aggression, conflict or emotional distancing. Or when big events in the family cause attachment ruptures, leaving parent and/or child reeling and unable to re-connect
I aim to help parents have a more playful, accepting, curious and empathic way of communicating with their children (including with adolescent and young adult children).
I believe this helps us talk about the good things and difficult things in our relationships with our children
Free Introductory Session
Feeling a human connection, trust and safety with your counsellor (maybe not immediately, but slowly and surely over time) is really important
If you would like to try counselling with me, please use the contact details below to set up a free 30-minute introductory session
When we meet, you can tell me what you are looking for and I’ll share more about what I can offer
You can ask any questions you have about working with me, and – if we feel that we could work well together – we can discuss when would be a good time for us to meet and how frequently
My therapeutic approach is
grounded in Heartfulness.
This is an experience of deep, safe connection with Self and Another that comes when we stop pressuring ourselves and start experiencing our full range of emotions
I’ll support you with Openness and Curiosity. Einstein said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”. I've also found that, when we get curious in new ways about our experiences and reactions, change starts to be possible
I’ll always have a Collaborative and Respectful therapeutic relationship with you where you are the expert in your own inner world and life experiences.
I am here to support you to explore what might be getting in the way of what you want for yourself, in your life
