About Sarah Somner

I offer counselling and psychotherapy for both individuals with wide ranging issues and couples with relationship issues. I will provide a safe and confidential therapeutic space, where you can feel listened to and understood, allowing you to explore your emotions, without being judged.

Counselling can support you through difficult periods of your life. Together, we can help you to address problems which may stem from distressing events in your earlier life. These can sometimes cause a repetitive impact on the present. Issues such as poor relationships, low self esteem, lack of confidence, divorce, stress, depression, blended families, living with aspergers syndrome, compulsive behaviour, anger, can all affect our ability to cope with life. Counselling can help you come to terms with and find acceptance of the past, think about the options available to you and the choices you might wish to make, to enable you to look forwards to a more positive future. I can help you find new ways of understanding yourself and when working with a couple, help with understanding each other.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and specialist trained couple counsellor. My training was based on both person centred and psychodynamic theories and both of them inform my practice.

The work we do together can either be short or long term, depending on what suits your needs.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethical code. I am fully insured for my work.
