Hello, my name is Sarah Cunliffe and I am an Emotional Therapeutic Counsellor & Elite Pro on

Persistently unhappy? Angry? Suffering with depression? Low self esteem? Confused? Anxious all the time? Ill health? Eating disorder? Family problems? Bereaved? Experiencing abuse? Relationship gone wrong? Can't cope? Emotional therapy may be able to help.

So what is Emotional Therapeutic Counselling?
Emotional Therapeutic Counselling is an interactive, creative, talking therapy for people who are suffering emotional turmoil in their lives, whether brought about by crisis, a long term situation, persistent unhappiness, depression, apathy or difficulties in relating to others. Emotional Therapeutic Counselling holds the belief that emotional wellbeing is a key to a happy, fulfilling life.

How can Emotional Therapeutic Counselling help?
A key aspect of Emotional Therapeutic Counselling is the range of techniques and creative tools that can be used to assist you to both recognise and release painful feelings in an appropriate manner, by working with your emotions rather than your mind.

The therapy goes at your pace and the number of sessions will vary according to your needs. Emotional Therapeutic Counsellors are trained to a very high standard and subscribe to a Code of Conduct which provides commitment to ongoing training and supervision.

If you feel you might benefit from Emotional Therapeutic Counselling and want to know more about it then feel free to contact me.

Tel: 07979750289

It is important for you to find a therapist you feel comfortable with and I offer a free initial consultation (20-30 minutes) so we can meet in person and you can ask any questions you may have, to help you make the right choice for you. Therapy sessions generally last 50 minutes.

My initial consultation, which lasts between 20-30 minutes, is free.
Thereafter, my fees are from £50 per hour with sessions usually lasting 50 minutes. I require 48 hours notice of cancelling an appointment otherwise there will be a charge.

Sarah, thank you for giving me the safe place that allowed me to work through the issues which have dogged me since childhood (it turns out). The creative tools were excellent, allowing me to see for the first time what the sources of my problems were. Thanks again Sarah. Highly recommended.

I found the sessions enormously beneficial and I am quite sure they have encouraged me to look at how my childhood has affected me and my reactions in my adult life.
I trust Sarah both professionally and as a person and would have no hesitation whatsoever in seeking her help if the need ever arose in the future.

Sarah Cunliffe Q&A

Sarah Cunliffe Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I love empowering clients so that they can be progressing towards what they want to achieve even when we are not in a session.
Seeing clients lives change for the better, more fulfilled, released from what has been hurting them & impacting their lives negatively.
Seeing that initial nervous look on client's faces melt way in the first 5 minutes when they realise I am just a very ordinary person, very human and unjudgmental and that I really get where they are coming from. I find human beings fascinating and I feel honoured to temporarily play a small part in supporting that person on their journey back to feeling whole again.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I wanted to do a job that I really enjoy which exploits my personal strengths, experience and training in order to make a real difference to other people's lives. There is nothing more fulfilling.
I also wanted to reach a greater audience as I have also done a lot of research into emotional wellness and relationship dynamics that I want to impart where appropriate.
Over the years in other jobs I have really enjoyed building relationships and bringing out the best in people, improving communications, acknowledging talents and potential in others and I wanted to have a chance to work in this area in a more focussed way.

Why should our clients choose you?

I get results - no flimsy temporary approaches that don't last. Clients come to me when other therapies have not worked for them. I don't patronise and I am respectful. Men and women have expressed they felt comfortable talking to me openly and I explain clearly how it will work.
I am a people person, I am unjudgmental, I really care about others and always commit myself to giving the best counselling I can. I would be working for you with an agreed list of things you want to achieve.
Very successful with a long track record of success with clients even in the most severe cases.
A safe pair of hands, well trained, certified and accredited and keep my continual professional development training updated annually, store client data as per the Data protection Act and communicate within GDPR regulations. I am fully insured.
I can work from various bases in Bristol and Bath -Southville clinic in Bristol has free parking & disabled access, Bath ICE has a huge paid car park at the back.
Various counselling options, in person, online via skype, then email or on the phone if it suits the client.
Clients have kindly shared that they really appreciated that I am very, very gentle when needed but also if later on they were procrastinating or felt stuck I was honest with them and gently challenged them in order to get them back on track. I do not agree with keeping clients in sessions any longer than they absolutely need as I want to empower clients to get back on with their lives and back in the world.
I have worked in many different industries and have lots of life experience, I am caring, I am pragmatic, steady, honest and a realist and I never give up.
