Hi, I'm Sarah, an Experienced Counsellor, Psychotherapist & Supervisor
Life can be difficult for all of us, at different times, for different reasons. When things feel overwhelming it can be helpful to seek counselling support. As a therapist, I offer a safe and confidential space for you to talk through any issues or challenges that you may be experiencing. It can be helpful to explore what is going on for you and to share your fears, thoughts and feelings.
Working together - what to expect
My aim is to provide you with a relationship built upon trust, openness and honesty, where you can feel accepted without judgement. As your counsellor, I will not give advice or offer the answers to your problems, but I will remain alongside you and help you find your own way forward.
Working from a Humanistic approach, we will focus upon what is happening for you in the present, however, past experiences and relationships clearly affect our present so these are explored as they arise. I take the lead from my client and work at their pace and gently challenge when appropriate to facilitate different/new perspectives and to help increase self awareness.
I understand that seeking counselling can be a daunting prospect and do my upmost to create an environment where my client feels comfortable and at ease. I offer a free telephone counselling assessment where we can discuss your needs and consider if and how we can work together. Please see my 'Testimonials' page for feedback from people I have previously worked with. It could provide you with a helpful insight of how I work as a counsellor and how counselling support has been beneficial to others.
I offer individual counselling to adults, young people and trainee counsellors undertaking therapy as part of their training (at a reduced rate). As a qualified supervisor, I also offer clinical supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors on a 1-1 basis.
Due to COVID 19, I can offer online face to face (via Zoom) and telephone sessions. I will resume Walk and Talk and face to face sessions at my practice as soon I feel it is safe to do so.
Please contact me for a free 20 minute telephone assessment

Issues I Work With In Counselling
I have worked with clients experiencing depression, low mood and anxiety including panic/panic attacks. Exploring the root of these issues and finding new strategies for coping can help to improve life dramatically.
I have also worked extensively with clients, carers and families who have experienced loss, bereavement, and terminal / life limiting illness. Having someone to share your struggles with and to speak to confidentiality can be of huge benefit.
I am also experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with:
