About me and my therapy practice

My name is Sarah and I’m a Person-Centred (Integrative) Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Life Coach. I offer both long and short-term counselling online but also more alternative therapies when it feels helpful to do so. These include Breathwork, Meditation, Mindfulness and Yoga (including Children’s Yoga) all of which are tailored to you to fit your needs. Although I specialise in Trauma, including childhood trauma, I offer a service to all who feel the need for support and guidance.

My background is working in education where I specialise in pastoral work and safeguarding. Hence, I am well aware of how to work well with the individual who presents in a stressed, unhappy and upset manner. Clients in recent work have also included survivors of sexual abuse and rape, childhood trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, low self-worth, loss, and grief.

Practice description

A key to my success with clients is to meet each person and their situation without judgement, pre-conceptions and remoteness. And to meet in a way that clients feel safe. This relationship is key to success as people heal quicker in both mind and body when they feel connected, confident and at ease with their counsellor. It is for this reason that I offer a free, no obligation 30 minute consultation so we can get a feel for each other.

As your counsellor I will listen to you closely and with compassion. I want to hear and understand both your spoken and non-spoken feelings, thoughts and emotions. I will then be able to see more clearly the world from your perspective and thereby prompt insights that will help us explore the issue(s) you wish to work through. I will also suggest practical coping strategies to help you in your day to day life. We will work through this at a pace that is comfortable for you.
