I'm Sadie (they/them), and as a counsellor, I'm dedicated to fostering a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can…

  • Delve into your inner world
  • Explore your identity
  • Recognize your traumas
  • Harness your inner strength
  • And craft a life of authenticity and fulfilment

Whether you're in Berlin, Germany, or connecting with me online from across the globe, I'm here to support you on your journey in person and online with counselling sessions for individuals, partnerships, and groups.

Navigating Life While Living One’s Authenticity

Drawing from my own experiences as a queer individual, I understand the unique hurdles and triumphs of navigating life while living one's authenticity.

Crescendo Counselling is driven by a commitment to counteract the harm inflicted by uninformed mental health practices. Here, you'll find a sanctuary grounded in intersectionality and trauma-informed care, where we form a therapeutic alliance that honours every facet of your identity.


Together, we can address a spectrum of challenges, including:

  • Navigating the complexities of coming out and familial dynamics
  • Confronting stigma and discrimination with resilience and grace
  • Managing the intricacies of relationships and dating within diverse contexts
  • Tackling mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, and trauma
  • Exploring and affirming your gender identity, sexuality, and journey of transition
  • Cultivating healthy communication, consent, and boundaries
  • Navigating the landscape of polyamory and other non-traditional relationships
  • Cultivating self-acceptance and embracing your authentic self
  • Managing emotional turmoil and fostering resilience
  • Understanding and honouring your sexual desires and expressions
  • Pursuing personal growth and self-improvement
  • Navigating life transitions with confidence and resilience
  • Coping with stress and combating burnout

Why Crescendo Counselling?

A "crescendo" is more than a musical term—it's a metaphor for the transformative journey we embark on in therapy.

Just as a crescendo builds gradually, so too does our inner work leading to growth, empowerment, and integration. My work is guided by my passion for music therapy, specifically Guided Imagery and Music psychotherapy.

A journey of self-discovery, healing, and empowerment

Taking the courageous step to seek counselling is an act of vulnerability, and I am deeply honoured by your trust.

I'm committed to creating an affirming, equitable therapeutic space that celebrates the rich tapestry of sexual orientations and gender identities. Together, let's embark on a journey of self-discovery, healing, and empowerment.

To ensure we're the right fit, I offer a free initial session where you can feel truly seen, heard, and valued for who you are.
