I have over 30 years experience working as a mental health practitioner and psychotherapist, and 10 years experience as a meditation teacher, mindfulness practitioner and practising buddhist.

Sarah's task, as your therapist is to provide an environment that disrupts your current level of functioning and move you towards change and renewed progression. Clients come to counselling stuck and immobilized, unable to create something new in their lives. The repetition of stuck and unsatisfactory behaviours, thoughts and feelings is what leads most clients through my door. I utilise theoretical and practical interventions, through the observation of the client’s discrepancies, mixed messages, conflict, and incongruity in the client’s statements and behaviours within the counselling sessions.
Are you unsatisfied with some part of your relationship? Would you like things to be smoother and less stressful? Do you feel unseen and unheard? The Love Scout Relationship Therapy helps you grapple with all issues pertaining to romantic relationships such as: perpetual arguing, separation, divorce, infidelity, sexual trauma, rape, porn, intimacy issues, co-dependency, sexual performance issues, sex addiction and open/alternative relationships.
Are you feeling anxious, stressed, confused, emotionally overwhelmed? Does life seem overwhelming, unfair, sad, unfulfilling, directionless, hopeless? Do you simply want more from life? You’re not alone. I endeavour to understand what is important for you, which means that I don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach. Using empathy and non-judgement, I listen to understand what life is like for you and to ‘get’ you - what you are thinking and feeling, how the events of life have impacted you, and what you want and need. I create a safe space to be open and real about what you are experiencing.

I want to ensure my clients feel fully supported at all times in order to address any challenges which arise. This includes ongoing communication, check-ins, tasks and guidance. I work with the person, not their label or diagnosis.

I focus on establishing strong therapeutic relationships with my clients, enabling genuine conversations about your individual needs and challenges to take place.
