Welcome, I am a qualified Counsellor, therapeutically supporting adults, families, and children's mental health and wellbeing in Gloucestershire.
A Space 2 Be is a private practice in Cheltenham, and is based at Essential Space in the heart of Cheltenham town centre. I also offer both home and off-site visits, this includes local schools and organisations.
I aim to provide a safe and welcoming environment to either seek support in counselling, mindfulness, creative expression, therapeutic training, mental health support. Additionally, I have further training and experience in working with GSRD therapy clients of diverse genders, sexualities, identities, relationships, lifestyles & practices, offering non-judgemental, and affirming support.
In present times, I am supporting people to manage their stress and anxiety, coping with the effects of the global pandemic, Covid 19, and am seeing people both face to face and in online sessions.

I have been working with Sarah for just under a year, she has supported me to take steps that I didn't think were possible, my confidence has really grown in this time

I needed someone to talk to that wouldn't judge me. Sarah gave me a space to express how I fell about my gender and this has helped me make sense of my feelings and just be me
