I am Dr Sarah Butler, a Counselling Psychologist offering support online and based in the UK. As a Psychologist I am qualified to work with different problems and difficulties including adult ADHD assessment, depression, anxiety and trauma. My work is enhanced by years of study into the theory and evidence of different therapeutic approaches, and the study of clients' experiences of therapy. This means I can provide a non-judgmental and confidential space where you can explore your feelings but also learn about the causes of your problems, what keeps them going, how you can make changes. I am also a Flow for depression consultant.

I am a fully accredited psychotherapist with over 15 years experience in both the public sector and private practice. I have trained in the use of EMDR which is especially helpful for people who have been traumatised and find it difficult to talk about their experiences but EMDR can also be used for a wide range of issues. My core training in psychotherapy can help people to understand themselves on a deeper level, help them to understand their reactions to people and life. I also trained in CBT which can give you new strategies to deal with life. My philosophy is always to work with your needs and goals

"There is a crack in everything - that's how the light gets in" (Leonard Cohen). I love this. We all have problems, things we don't like about ourselves, things we struggle with over and over. It's part of being human, none of us are completely 'sorted'. But sometimes we feel overwhelmed, desperate, alone.... the cracks are too big, the light isn't getting in. Or we feel stuck, frustrated, exhausted, going round in circles, nothing will ever change. Perhaps you feel you can't be the real you. Maybe you feel like this a lot, or maybe it's new for you and your usual coping/support isn't working. Maybe you don't know what's wrong.

I work with people who are struggling to manage their anxiety whether that be because of a phobia, social anxiety or generalised anxiety disorder. Clients come to me because they want practical skills for managing the symptoms of anxiety. My clients learn how to manage anxiety on a daily basis and go on to overcome phobias, give presentations or achieve the things they want to do.

Do you walk on eggshells in certain relationships? Do you struggle to say no or set boundaries. Do you feel like your reality is being questioned? Have you been in a relationship that has been verbally abusive? Do you not have control of your finances, or personal decision making? Do conversations sound like they are 'crazy making' or going in circles. Sometimes we feel like we have lost ourselves in our relationships. Or we have experienced significant psychological abuse in the past. I help people make sense of their experiences in a safe and nurturing environment. You are not alone and can improve your life.

As a black therapist, my diverse background enhances my understanding of the unique struggles faced by different groups. I utilise an Integrative approach, but it's my personal experiences and cultural awareness that influence how I work. I aim to create a welcoming space where clients feel recognised and valued for their differences. I offer guidance and support as they navigate through challenging times in their lives, creating a safe and nurturing environment for them to explore their issues with my presence and companionship every step of the way, until they feel confident and empowered to stand on their own.

I have 20 years’ experience as a counsellor and offer counselling to individuals in a quiet, secure space. My aim includes helping you come to a clearer understanding of what has brought you to counselling, and supporting you in finding the way forwards that feels right for you. Perhaps surprisingly, our difficulties can become a source of change and growth.

I work gently and compassionately, with individuals/couples, struggling with difficult or painful feelings, managing their emotions, and struggling to enjoy life. Communication is often an issue, as are feelings of unfairness or difficulty forming good, lasting relationships. Issues may involve partners, parents, past traumas, or inner conflict making decisions difficult. They may involve issues at work with colleagues, management or relationships. When working with couples the issues are often about unfulfilled expectations, infidelity, lack of commitment/affection, insecurity, lack of empathy, or experiences of coercion or control

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
