About me and my therapy practice

When you work with me, you will find that there are more choices available to you, more than you ever imagined.Rather feeling that you ‘should’ ,’must’ or ‘ought’ to do something, you will be able to make decisions about what works for you, without feeling guilty. You’ll find that you are less hard on yourself and more gentle with yourself and others.

Imagine also the liberating feeling of being comfortable in your own skin , giving yourself permission to say ‘no’ and still feeling ok within yourself.
I can help you build a better and healthier relationship with yourself , to tackle the shame and feelings of inferiority that you are experiencing , I CAN help you feel good enough , so that you can attract and build healthier relationships with others in your life, putting healthy choices in place that suit you and allowing yourself to share your opinions. I believe that I can help you come away from a world which may be black and white , to a world that is fulfilling, full of colour .

Practice description

Hi, my name is Sarah and I am passionate about supporting people who are struggling with their relationships.
This can come up as feeling like you have no opinion, or if you
do ,that it doesn’t count. Are you worrying about upsetting others for fear of disapproval. I wonder how many times you catch yourself saying ‘sorry’ or ‘should’ a lot? Do you struggle with feelings like guilt or shame, feeling inferior , having thoughts like ‘what’s wrong with me’ or ‘I’m not good enough’?

This could be at home , when our children don’t get the grades that we had hoped for or maybe you find yourself looking at other people and it seems that they are doing a better job of things than you are, or when our partner is upset with us because we don’t agree with what their work colleague or relative has said. It may be at work when we keep making tiny mistakes and get into difficulties with our work load.

These patterns can leave us feeling fed up , confused , wondering ‘ Why can’t I do anything right’ or ‘ why do I keep attracting the wrong kind of person’? Leaving us with big life’s questions like, Who am I ? What’s my purpose? Do I matter?
