Hi, I’m Sara  سارا

I'm a Pakistani and English, Gestalt Counsellor (MBACP) working in Shoreditch and online. For me, therapy is a moment to reflect and explore what is and isn’t working for you and how to get more of what you want. I became a therapist as I felt there was something profoundly healing and transformative about therapy, which supported changes in myself, my relationships and my environment. I found therapy enables more vibrancy, creating a meaningful life.

I work in a warm and honest way holding space for you to explore what’s going on for you. Although I feel people have the resources they need, having a companion whilst experiencing difficulties can be a new experience for some and profoundly healing.

"Rarely, if ever, are any of us healed in isolation"-  bell hooks

Some examples of how therapy can be used:

You may be experiencing anxiety, depression, have low self-esteem, or finding yourself in unfulfilling, similar scenarios. You may be wanting support for something challenging upcoming or want to explore something that has affected you in the past. Perhaps you are wanting to explore patterns or obstacles that you feel may be holding you back or you may be experiencing overwhelming feelings and symptoms in your body and are not sure why.

I believe our behaviour, thoughts and feelings hold important information about how we navigate in the world and what we are needing more of. I feel our habitual ways of being have previously served a purpose (and will be currently), however when we are aware of this, we have more choice.

How I work:

I work in a Gestalt modality, which means I attentively focus on your immediate experience whilst working with you, supporting more awareness (this also includes memories and experiences that come up about your past). I believe our experience in our body is important information about how we really are. In my eyes, becoming more aware of this shows glimmers into what we’re needing. My role is to attentively support you in your ongoing process of getting to know yourself more- which then allows potential change.

I have a background in education, music performance and performance recovery, so I am experienced with bodywork, grounding and the pressure around work/life balance. I like to think because of these experiences, I work creatively with clients!
