W1 Psychotherapy

Sarah Lloyd

I am an experienced qualified psychotherapist and counsellor based in Marylebone, Central London W1.

My therapy practice offers a calm, confidential and empathetic setting in which to identify, explore and work through issues that may be affecting your life.

I am committed to offering high quality, non-judgemental psychotherapy and counselling provision to individuals and couples. I undertake in-depth therapeutic work with adults experiencing a wide range of difficulties and also see clients for time limited work. I have over 15 years experience working as a therapist both in the NHS and in private practice and welcome clients from all backgrounds, ethnicities, genders, religions and sexual orientations.

Psychotherapy and counselling aims to help people understand more about their inner world and about how painful and distressing situations in the present can have roots in the past. Gaining insight into these connections and patterns can open up new ways of thinking and possibilities for change.

Please feel free to contact me via email or telephone 0207 486 9537 to discuss your situation. All communication will be treated as confidential.

I offer specialist support for the following issues:

Feeling stressed and anxious.
Lacking a sense of purpose in life.
Family conflicts.
Feeling depressed, sad or empty.
Lacking confidence, self-esteem or having feelings of underachievement.
Difficulties relating to sexuality.
Realising an inability to make or sustain good relationships.
Coming to terms with losses such as bereavement, separation or redundancy.
Issues with eating patterns.
Repeatedly becoming involved in unsatisfactory or destructive behaviours.

Initial Steps

Understandably seeing a therapist for the first time can feel daunting and anxiety provoking.

The first step is to email or telephone to arrange an initial consultation. In the initial consultation there is an opportunity for us to meet each other and explore whether you might find therapy helpful.

If you decide you would like to continue then we would arrange a regular day and time to meet. Sessions last for 50 minutes.

You may choose to come to therapy on an open-ended or time-limited basis. The duration of therapy depends on your needs and concerns and is something we would discuss in the initial consultation.
