"I am not what happened to me but what I choose to become" - Carl Jung

Guided by Sarah - Therapy & Coaching with Sarah Guthrie


I am a fully insured and qualified counsellor, based in Bristol and registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), where I adhere to their code of ethics. I have regular supervision. 


In addition to private practice work, I have counselled students online at Durham University and volunteered at The Swan Project in Bristol, an agency that provides trauma-informed therapy for people with complex trauma, loss, and addiction.  Prior to this, I spent many years living and working in London.  I am an LGBTQ+ ally. 


I have recently started offering therapeutic coaching as some clients prefer to work in a more action-orientated way. I have personally received coaching which was of great benefit to me and enhanced my desire to offer this as part of my integrative approach. 


When I am not counselling, I love being creative, active and connecting with nature to unwind.
