What people say about me....

Dr. Berger has a very warm, down-to-earth, engaging and empathetic style which assuaged my initial concerns about 'opening up' to her as I had never sought treatment before.

She is an excellent listener who probes effectively to help explore underlying issues to assist with identifying potential solutions in a professional, collaborative, kind and non-judgmental manner, whilst always keeping the patient's interests and needs firmly in focus.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Berger and would strongly urge anyone seeking a psychologist to consider her services as she is an experienced, qualified and very capable practitioner and also a very nice person to boot!

Sarah has a highly welcoming and friendly approach, is easy to talk to and completely non-judgmental. I felt like she took the time to really get to know me and what approach might work best; she took time to explain different approaches we could take and adapted things as we moved from one week to the next to make sure I was getting the most out of every session. With Sarah’s patient guidance, I feel like I have been on a very positive journey of self-discovery, which has changed my outlook in the long-term to a calmer, more self-compassionate and happier version of myself.

Thank you again for all the help you’ve given me! You really have changed my life around and I will forever be grateful to you for that! You’ve made such a massive positive impact to my mental health and I don’t know how I could ever thank you enough for that after all these years where I have been suffering in silence. 

I am so incredibly grateful for the expertise and knowledge offered by Sarah. When I first started attending sessions, I was desperately in need of help. I was depressed, unstable and in despair. Through one on one sessions, I was able to open up and express my concerns and identify my problems. 

Sarah encouraged and guided me to express myself and I found that openly verbalising my problems meant I could take a step forward to resolving them. 

Somehow being able to talk to someone, made me realise that I did have the capacity to cope. Sarah has a great depth of knowledge and experience and used various means to help me formulate a way of coping. Sarah, as well as being very intelligent, capable and  knowledgable, is tremendously compassionate. Sarah helped me when no-one else could. 

I am now enjoying a much more stable frame of mind and have learned coping mechanisms that mean I can enjoy my life again.

I without reservation, would recommend Sarah. 

 

Dr Sarah Berger has literally changed my life! Having attended several cycles of CBT and meetings with numerous therapists to address my anxiety, she was the first practitioner who truly offered an alternative way of approaching my difficult feelings which actually worked! She is very down to earth, empathetic and makes you feel very comfortable as well as being extremely skilled at hearing your concerns and drawing out the underlying problems. I cannot recommend her services enough as I feel like I finally have my life back!

My daughter and I have both found Dr Berger to be very approachable and supportive.

She built a really good rapport with my daughter even though they had only been able to meet online. My daughter found her to be very friendly and within a couple of sessions felt able to share her difficulties and trust Dr Berger to help her. 

Dr Berger has a wide range of techniques and strategies she can employ to support needs; my daughter is now feeling much more confident and feels she has the tools to use if and when things become difficult for her.

From the start of our sessions together, Sarah sought to work with me to help me understand myself better. I really appreciated the fact that she did not decide ahead of time which methodology to use, but rather, she got to know me and asked what I wanted to get out of the sessions. Throughout the whole process, I have felt that Sarah genuinely cared, which made being open and honest in sessions far easier. I also appreciated how practical the sessions were; it was not the case that we discussed things just for the sake of it, instead, each session had a practical purpose that I could take into my daily life. I genuinely feel that I understand myself and my anxiety far better as a result of my time spent with Sarah, and I have been equipped with real strategies to help me navigate my daily life.

 

I met with Sarah for 6 weeks to discuss anxiety. I hugely benefited from my time with her and her ability to understand, support and challenge me. She used a variety of personalised techniques to help me think through patterns of behaviour and thinking that was hindering my wellbeing. From my initial telephone call with her, I felt that she understood me as a whole person and used her skills to make me feel confident in discussing my issues and aims. From this I have been able to utilise the various pathways that she gave me to help decrease my anxiety and get on with the important aspects of my life. I am in a significantly better place than I was at the start of my time with her and would not hesitate to recommend her to others. It was one of the best decisions I could have made to seek therapeutic support and I am so pleased I did it with Sarah. I am very grateful for her work with me. 

Sarah has been so caring and sensitive throughout our sessions. I can’t fault her dedication and it is very clear that she is thinking about her client regularly outside of sessions and has an incredible memory for what I have been up to, what is currently plaguing my mind and how she can suggest new techniques for me to improve. She has genuinely felt like a friend and this has been the real difference between her and my previous experiences of therapy. She has made me feel completely at ease and welcome at every session and genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her clients. I have been able to make incredible progress in a relatively short space of time and this can only been down to her diligence and pro activity as a therapist. I use the techniques she taught me daily and I have no doubt where to go if I need help again in future.

Cannot stress how amazing Dr. Sarah Berger actually is. Previously had CBT and it wasnt for me, but Sarah has by far helped me the most. Very professional, very understanding and very good at what she does. I have learnt so much in the space of time I have had with her. Techniques and strategies learnt that I am using on a daily basis and are having a great impact on my life. Couldn't thank her enough for how far I have come because of her work. Would highly recommend sarah to anyone. 

I will forever be indebted to Sarah Berger for the help, support and guidance she has given me over the past year. I found our sessions life changing and the decision to contact her was one of the best I have ever made; waiting nearly five months before our first session was worth the wait. I would not hesitate for one second in recommending Sarah if you are thinking about therapy. Sarah has helped me to understand my thoughts and emotions, and worked with me to understand myself and my surroundings; as well as enabling me to not let past experiences and trauma hold me back. Sarah would never take any credit for the progress I made but constantly encouraged me and was only proud with the huge steps forward I took. I would never have imagined speaking to a clinical psychologist but am so happy that I did. Thank you Sarah!!

Sarah was so organised with structure but flexibility in case something had happened in my week that needed to be prioritised in my sessions. They were 'my' sessions but I always knew she had a destination of where we wanted to get to as I had told her what I wanted to achieve and she also understood what I needed to face and overcome. Sometimes Sarah seemed to simply know what I was going to say and presented new and hard thoughts in a caring way, no matter how scary they might feel. Helping me make sense of what felt very complicated and muddled. Her memory of who and what was important to me and why was impressive; she really knows me and what my values are. Sarah will always be someone special in my life - I have never felt so cared for and helped by anyone. Nobody can take away trauma, but Sarah helped me live with it in a way I honestly never thought I would be able.
