Counsellor Psychotherapist, N2

Sarah Aldridge

Hello and thank you for visiting this site. I am a counsellor and psychotherapist working with people who have a range of issues including depression, trauma and relationship problems. People come to therapy for different reasons:

  • anxiety and depression
  • family difficulties
  • health related issues
  • life changes or a major life event
  • general feelings of uncertainty or things not feeling right

Talking to a therapist in a safe, confidential space can allow issues to be thought about differently when things can feel stuck or overwhelming.

I am an experienced Counsellor, based in East Finchley, North London.  I am also an accredited DIT (Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy) Practitioner. I am trained in Couple Therapy for Depression. I am an accredited member of the BPC and the BACP.

The practice is in East Finchley. There is free parking, tube station 8 mins away and convenient bus routes.

I offer short-term and open-ended therapy. Please contact me if you would like to find out more or to arrange an initial meeting: Email: Mobile: 07932 656906

Why Therapy?

People from all walks of life start therapy, for different reasons. You might be feeling overwhelmed and not wanting to handle difficulties without support anymore; or be feeling confused, conflicted and just need help to understand things more clearly.

Therapy provides a safe, confidential and consistent space to start exploring some of the things about ourselves that can be difficult to understand. Being heard properly for the first time can often be an important first step in the process.

People come for therapy for: 

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Relationship and family difficulties
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Stress and work problems
  • Fertility issues
  • Health related issues
  • Divorce and separation
  • Sexual and physical abuse

  • Midlife and menopause
  • Holocaust and trauma

I have a special interest in: 

  • Relationship issues
  • Cancer and serious illness
