About Sarah Jack

Testimonials

Sarah Jack is a warm, welcoming and professional counsellor. After years of mental health problems and numerous sessions with other therapists, just a few months working with Sarah has had a profound effect on my life and happiness. I would not hesitate in recommending working with Sarah, it really will have an enormous impact on your wellbeing and outlook on life, forever. ML (individual counselling)

I have found Sarah incredibly helpful. She has been warm, non-judgemental and encouraging, whilst simultaneously making sessions feel very focused. In a very short period of time I have been able to make fundamental changes in my life. I feel positive about areas that were previously causing me distress, and feel confident that I can continue on the path that we set out together. In short, finding Sarah was exactly what I needed. She is brilliant. I can't recommend her highly enough. BC (individual counselling)

My wife and I were having a bit of trouble... Covid pandemic brought us just that wee bit too close together in the same house and somehow things just weren't gelling anymore. To the point of explosion. Found Sarah and within just a few sessions she performed what seems like magic. We're back to our old selves, laughing and joking again. Sarah is a fantastic counselor. She sees right inside and gets you to open up and be honest - and she does so in a beautiful way that really helped both of us tremendously. I'd highly recommend her and her way of working to anyone!

I sought counselling support from Sarah via email and benefited from seeing my story in writing.  Her responses to what I brought provided me with an opportunity to really build on my strengths and resources.  Our work has given me such optimism and focus in my life, which I value as I feel so much happier.  I would highly recommend working with Sarah who has brought such positive change into my life.  HA (online counselling)

Thank you so much for all your help you have made an amazing difference for myself and my children- we have been able to learn how to communicate clearly and without defensive reactions because you created such a held, supportive and safe space for us to be in during our sessions with you. We are now much more able to talk, resolve issues  and enjoy our time together through this very difficult period in our lives. The children have a much greater sense of self and I have been able to  see them clearly and appreciate their opinions. SJ
