Welcome To Plymouth Counselling With Sarah Avenell

Welcome to Plymouth Counselling, where you’ll find a safe and supportive space to embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth. I’m Sarah Avenell, your dedicated and compassionate counsellor, here to help you navigate through life’s challenges and find inner strength.

Life can often feel overwhelming, leaving us trapped in our emotions and uncertain about our future. If you’re struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, low mood, relationship matters, or stress, you’re not alone. These are common struggles that many of us face, and seeking support is a courageous first step towards reclaiming control of your life.

As a Plymouth Counsellor with over four years of experience in both the private and public sectors, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our counselling sessions. I have witnessed first hand the transformative power of therapy, helping individuals like yourself connect with their inner selves, process their emotions, and ultimately find fulfilment.

Through our sessions, we’ll work together to help you regain control of your life, build confidence, improve relationships, and reach your goals. My approach is rooted in empathy, respect, and understanding, ensuring you feel supported and heard throughout the process. 

My goal is to empower you to embrace your true potential and live a life filled with confidence, meaningful relationships, and personal fulfilment. Whether you’re seeking guidance to overcome a specific issue or striving to reach your goals, I will be there every step of the way, providing the tools and support you need.

If you’re ready to take the first step towards positive change, book your free video consultation with Plymouth Counselling today. You don’t have to face your challenges alone. Together, we will navigate the path to healing, growth, and a brighter tomorrow.

Here is what my Plymouth Counselling Clients Say

“Sarah acknowledge my fears. At the same time offering reassurance and encouraging me. Sarah always checked in with how I was and this made me feel heard.”


"I had been considering counselling for a while but was always hesitant to take that step and I am so glad I did. Working with Sarah was a big turning point for me, I learnt so much about myself over the months and I can visibly see the effects counseling has had over my confidence and my ability to understand and manage my emotions. I have seen a change in the way I approach situations and the way I see myself. Sarah was the perfect counsellor to have, she was attentive, caring, empathetic and allowed me to have the space to figure things out on my own whilst being there to guide me through the process. I can’t thank her enough for what she was able to do for me."

Female Client

"I would like to thank Sarah for all her support. Before I got her help I think I was heading for another crisis."
