Sarah Felton - Counsellor specialising in working with anxiety.

Thanks for stopping by my website. Since 2013, I've helped many clients break through their obstacles that were holding them back in life and have worked with many themes, problems and issues including: loss, depression, physical disabilities and bereavement. I now specialise in anxiety.

I'd love to help you feel less anxious so that you can get on with what matters most to you. In the beginning stages of therapy I will help you reduce your symptoms which might include: A racing heart, a level of perfectionism that leads to constant dissatisfaction, intrusive thoughts and a dry mouth. Once we have lessened your symptoms and built a trusting relationship we can begin to look at reducing your level of anxiety by addressing some of the thoughts and beliefs you hold about yourself and the world around you.

As a Counsellor rebuilding human connection is what I facilitate. It’s a privilege but I don’t perform magic just provide space and empathy for my clients to help themselves. I say ‘just’ like it’s easy. Of course, it takes time and skill.

Above all, I believe the relationships with others and ultimately 'ourselves' is key to our happiness and sense of well-being.

I developed a keen interest in Counselling from a young age as a result of my own experience with anxiety and subsequent therapy. I have experienced first hand how trans-formative Counselling can be not only useful, but life changing.

I have a background working in the service industry. It is through my time working in this area that I became particularly interested in helping people discover more about who they are, what they love doing and to do more of that. Awareness brings choices. 

I was recently a guest on Dr Jo Robinson's podcast "Suspicious Minds."
