Step Into Your Thoughts

My name is Sarah Jane Watson. I am a qualified BA (Hons) Counsellor and Psychotherapist.

My Background

I obtained my qualification in Dublin Business School. I am a pre-accredited member of Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP). My intentions are to provide an empathetic and non-judgemental environment where an individual feels safe to disclose.

My approach is humanistic, person-centred and integrative. I adapt a variety of therapeutic processes to ensure that the client’s needs are recognised and fulfilled.

I utilise my skills across a wide range of issues which may present with a client.

They can include:

Relationship Issues

Difficulties in managing relationships with loved ones.


It is common for individuals to experience a sense of apprehension or concern. It is important to identify the root of these feelings and explore methods to manage them effectively.


Seeking help is a sign of strength and resilience, and it can be an effective way to overcome difficult emotions.

Loss of direction or meaning in life

Do you find yourself struggling to find your life's purpose or feeling uncertain about your future direction? If so, therapy may help you find your way.

Loss of a loved one

Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be a challenging and emotional process. It is important to remember that everyone grieves differently and there is no right or wrong way to cope. It is important to take time to process your emotions and seek support, whether it be from friends, family, or a professional therapist.

Awareness and Insight into life’s current difficulties

As an individual who is mindful of the challenges that we encounter in life, it is crucial to have a deep comprehension of how we can face those hurdles.

Low Self-esteem / Poor Self-worth / Confidence Issues

It is natural to have moments of uncertainty, but allowing those emotions to persist can hinder professional and personal growth.

Trauma (past or recent)

Overcoming challenging situations is an integral part of life. By acknowledging and addressing these difficulties, we can learn important lessons that can guide us towards growth and personal transformation.

Postnatal Depression

Postnatal depression is the most prevalent mental health condition that occurs following childbirth. Symptoms can vary widely and may include a low mood, frequent crying, loss of interest and pleasure, social isolation, agitation, reduced appetite, difficulty focusing, as well as feelings of worthlessness and helplessness.

About My Clients

From time to time we all could do with somebody dependable, who is present and listens intently without judgement or criticism. Someone who reflects on what they hear with sincerity and with care.

I believe that it is an important step to create a calming therapeutic presence to ensure a client has the ability to feel that they can comfortably and feel safe to open up about their inner thoughts and fears.


Counselling and psychotherapy are types of “talk therapies”.

Counsellors and psychotherapists are qualified specialists who provide a safe space for a client, to help them develop a better understanding of themselves and others.

Along with providing the safe space, they will also listen, without any judgement, to whatever the client presents in a session.

The amount of sessions required by a client can vary, depending on the issues presented by the client.

When times are difficult and emotions perceived as unmanageable, therapy may help a person endure and survive their tough times.

Sometimes a person may need someone to not only listen, but to actually hear and understand what they are saying, without judgment.

Therapy is a defined time, agreed by client and therapist, to discuss the issues that prompted the client to seek therapy.

Therapy may consist of discussions about feelings, emotions, relationships, thought processes, and patterns of behaviour.

A client will typically attend therapy sessions on a weekly basis.

It is important to develop a regular pattern of attendance, because, when dealing with personal issues, consistency can help to maintain the commitment required to work towards a satisfactory outcome.
