Sara Knight

Gestalt Counsellor

Hi, I’m Sara  سارا


I'm a Gestalt Counsellor (MBACP) working in Shoreditch (EC2A) and online. You may be reaching out because you're experiencing low-mood, anxiety or have a vague feeling something isn't feeling right. I'm here to support you through towards a more happy, vibrant and meaningful life.

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 hold a space for us to explore together. I feel 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 what people bring to therapy

  • You may be experiencing anxiety, depression, have low self-esteem, or finding yourself in unfulfilling, similar scenarios/relationships

  • You may be wanting support for something challenging upcoming or want to explore something that has affected you in the past

  • You may feel something is holding you back 

  • Have a general feeling something isn't right


I believe our behaviour, thoughts and feelings hold important information about how we navigate in the world and what we are needing more of. When you are aware of this you 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 (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. Exploring this with support can show glimmers into what we’re needing-which then allows potential change.

I am experienced with working in a somatic way, and use creative experiments with pillows, objects, pens and paper and voice when there are no words. This I find helps with any stuckness!
