My name is Sara Yorke and I'm an accredited counsellor, coach and NLP practitioner.
I specialise in emotional wellbeing and helping you to address your challenges, to enable you to align your life with your hopes and dreams.

Whether you're struggling with stress,anxiety,depression, or any other issue, I'll look to support you by providing integrative counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.

I work with individuals for short or longer periods, depending on your need. My aim is to provide a safe space for you to address the issues that bring you to therapy and to enable you to find ways to cope, to address your concerns and to achieve your goals.

I have additional experience in helping people address the challenges arising from fertility issues, parenting concerns (including caring for adopted children, or those with additional needs) and navigating the impact of peri-menopause and menopause both at home and in the workplace.

In addition I work with people in managing trauma and loss in their lives, whether past or present, and the impact of this on them personally and in their relationships with other people.

Prior to becoming a counsellor and coach I had a career in marketing and training which focused on the importance of connection. This has informed my work and I often helped clients to identify and address their wellbeing issues and performance issues regarding their work. My background has also facilitated my helping people within organisations at all life stages and circumstances, from trainees/apprenticeships, to parents, to mid-life through to those approaching retirement to maximise their physical and mental health in the workplace and to create a positive work life balance.
