First and foremost, welcome to Sargasso Counselling and thank you for visiting our page. It feels like a good place to start is introducing you to the concept of counselling, setting your expectations as to what counselling does and does not involve.
Very rare is our journey through life linear, in fact every one of us will experience turbulence at some stage. Whilst some will move through relatively unscathed, for others, locating these coping strategies can be more of a challenge. The emotional trauma of not knowing where to turn, not being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and often being in conflict with others, or even yourself, can become overwhelming.
Counselling offers you a safe and warm environment to explore any afflictions, providing you with an impartial and empathic listener who can help you to gain a little perspective and find those coping strategies which work for you. Counselling isn't about judgement or advice giving; it's about empowering you the client to explore the things causing you emotional unrest and seek ways to move through them in your own time.
What areas can counselling work in?
Counselling has proven to be a successful therapeutic method working with, but not limited to:
Work related stress
How do I know if counselling is right for me?
This is a question only you can answer. Only you will know whether you are at the stage where you have exhausted all other options and now is the time to seek help from a professional. When it comes to ourselves, we are highly subjective and always emotionally invested, so if you feel you would like a different perspective and an objective ear, it may be you are at a stage where counselling is a good option for you to consider.

Our client experience
"Jason provided us with a safe, non-judgmental environment where we felt able to express our feelings. This was a great learning experience for us and we are grateful to Jason for his ability to help us see the whole rather than the half. We would certainly recommend Jason" - DD & TD
"Online counselling enabled me to be connected and engaged with my counselling from home. It took away some of the anxiety I may have experienced with travelling and organising the time into my day. Accessing my sessions was really user friendly and with minimal effort, I could have immediate access and be welcomed into my planned counselling session." EF
"I was recently diagnosed with anxiety and depression and felt utterly lost. Although I had experienced something similar in the past, this time, it felt very different and I felt genuinely frightened, fearing that I would not be able to recover. I started counselling just before the Covid-19 lockdown and after a few sessions, we had to swap from face to face sessions to online. At first, I did wonder how that would work, but thanks to Jason's professionalism, it was a seamless transition and the rest of my counselling journey was undertaken online. My initial belief was that a counsellor would ask me a series of questions and I would answer, but it wasn't like that at all. Without realising, I found myself talking, thinking, taking moments to reflect, actively challenging my own thought processes. I will be forever grateful for the much needed assistance Jason gave me at such a critical time in my life and I would recommended him to anyone who is considering therapy through counselling." AF
