Counselling for children and adolescents
‘When we first started going to Sarah, my son was lacking in confidence and constantly worried about other people’s feelings to the detriment of his own, resulting in conflicting emotions which he was not able to deal with. From the first session, Sarah completely put him at ease and made the sessions so much fun that he asked if he could see her every day!! She took sessions completely at his pace and worked through his issues by playing and doing activities he was comfortable with. I’m so pleased we went to see Sarah, my son is now much more confident in explaining his feelings and understanding his worth and we talk about things so much more which has helped me too!’
‘I found the workshop gave a good, varied content, liked the physical explanation of stress/anxiety on the body/mind.”
‘Felt at ease as soon as I walked in…the friendliness and openness! Loved the structure, the theory, the practicals, the discussion!’
‘Very relaxed and informative, made me think about stress/anxiety from all angles, very pleased with all aspects and looking forward to follow-up workshop.’
“I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the professional manner in which Sarah handled my therapy.
I found Sarah to be a very kind, compassionate and empathetic counsellor who clearly understood the circumstances which had led to my illness. Through a series of talking therapies and hypnosis, Sarah took me on a journey of self discovery which has helped me towards a feeling of emotional wellbeing and a positive outlook to the future. She encouraged me to look deeply into my core beliefs and unravel negative thinking patterns which had held me locked in a series of unhappy experiences. Sarah guided me gently and creatively through my journey to a state of better mental health and brought out deep rooted emotional trauma which allowed healing to begin. I would gladly recommend Sarah as a professional holistic therapist.”
“Being a little bit of a control freak I was sceptical about the impact the relaxation sessions would have on me. However, I was pleasantly surprised! Sarah’s approach was calm, soothing and gentle. I relaxed quickly and felt refreshed following the short sessions. I genuinely felt more confident within myself and better able to deal with situations at work. Sarah was able to adapt the sessions to my particular needs and it was lovely to feel life slow down as I relaxed and enjoyed a few minutes peace!”
“Sarah is very professional in her approach to her clients. From our first meeting Sarah put me at ease, as it was the first time I had ever had any type of Therapy. Hypnosis has helped to lower my blood sugar levels and made me more focused on what I eat and has also led to a much healthy lifestyle.”
“I was a bit worried about what to expect for the first session, but John soon put me at ease and I was looking forward to the weekly sessions. I really enjoyed them, especially John’s relaxing manner that made me deal with some of my inner demons! ……or at least my inner feelings. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”
“I decided to use Halcyon therapy to help with my prefight preparation as nerves always play a role in combat sports. The relaxation and visualisation sessions along with the feedback given by John has enabled me to feel confident, assertive and prepared mentally for the bout. I would recommend Halcyon Therapies services to anyone wanting to take their game to the next level!”

“I went to my first Mindfulness session with Halcyon not really knowing what to expect. Now, having just finished a series of 6 one-hour sessions, I know I made a really good decision. I feel as though I have opened up new ways to think about how I live my everyday life, new ways to relax, and, above all, new ways to be aware of the present moment.
Mindfulness has helped me in so many ways. I have learned how to make small changes that result in big differences of how I view myself and those around me. This has not been a one-off, ‘been there, done that’ course. I will carry what I have learned with me for the rest of my life and continue to learn more about these simple and effective techniques”.
“I can’t thank you enough Sarah! Your fantastic Counselling skills have helped me greatly through a very dark, lonely, heartbreaking, traumatic time in my life. When I have left our sessions I have genuinely felt more of the dark heavy cloud I have been living under has been lifted.
Your tranquil, beautiful setting, your personal warmth – always very welcoming and genuinely caring helped to put me at ease. You are a great listener, which helped me to share my problems, and you were never judgmental.
I am just so pleased I found the strength to face my feelings and without any doubt you helped me through this Sarah. I would highly recommend you and Halcyon Therapy for outstanding Counselling, you made me realise the phases I’ve been going through are perfectly normal and have definitely helped me progress on my journey to a happier life.
With the great experience and support you have given me in the future I will always make contact to book further Counselling with you as and when I feel I need it”.
“After feeling bogged down with stress of everyday life, Sarah helped get the old happy confident me back. This was the first counselling I have ever had, and I immediately felt at ease and relaxed, to be able to share my stressors, and not be judged. I would highly recommend Halcyon Therapy and I will not hesitate to use them again if I ever feel that I am struggling.”
“I dont really need to say much, but you have helped me immensely. Thank you.”
