About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I'm Sarah, I am a trauma informed and relational therapist and coach. 

Most of us face struggles at one time or another, and there is no shame in seeking help. Life can be complicated and difficult and our experiences of the world are both unique and shared. We hold the answers to our troubles and sometimes require a little guidance along the way. 

My desire to train as a counsellor came from experiencing personal struggles and high sensitivity and anxiety. As a child, I was diagnosed with ADHD and as a consequence understand the impact that learning difficulties and disabilities can have. 

I am passionate about equality and diversity and believe in creating an inclusive space where everyone feels welcome. I have experience of counselling a wide range of individuals with a number of issues and from different backgrounds. I am an LGBTQIA+ ally. 

Both counselling and coaching are a transformative process that can involve looking within and digging deep, and that takes courage. With this in mind, it is important that you find the right counsellor. It may be me, or it may be someone else. If it is me, you will be met with warmth and friendliness from the outset.

Practice description

I Specialise in working with: 

Neurodiverse and highly sensitive people

LGBTQIA+ people gender dysphoria 


Associated stress, anxiety, PTSD, loss and low self-esteem.

I am passionate about helping people create change, work through life transitions and find purpose. Spirituality and creativity can be woven into sessions. 

The space is collaborative, and the therapeutic relationship is at the heart of our work together. This is a place for you to express what is troubling you and enable you to develop resilience and hope for the future. Sessions could involve looking at the past and how it impacts the present or exploring difficulties you face in the here-and-now. I will never take you anywhere you are not ready to go and be guided by you and the pace that you set.

My counselling is holistic. I believe in working with every aspect of a person from their mind, body, and spirit to the conscious and unconscious parts waiting to be explored.  I will work with all your unique parts, through explorative dialogue, story, and metaphor, listening to them so they feel understood and heard. I also use mindfulness and embodiment-based practices that help you connect with your bodily felt sense, learn to self regulate and encourage inner kindness, and find harmony and balance.

Therapeutic coaching can help you work towards creating positive changes connecting you to your life purpose, finding love and awakening creativity within. Coaching can be particularly beneficial to those with ADHD, activating the Dopamine reward centre. 

Neurodiversity, trauma and loss (whether heartache or grief) can cause us to feel a myriad of emotions and I will work with you to find a way forward and heal.
