Stress, anxiety, depression is no longer such a taboo subject, yet we often tell ourselves, I can cope with this myself or maybe nobody will want to listen because nobody has time, or how about I’m too ashamed and I blame myself so I will cope with this by myself...... Well I am here to offer you the space to speak the unspoken and explore worrying thoughts together. The problem might be a recent incident that has left you feeling unsettled or a long standing concern deep rooted in unresolved trauma that has affected you e.g. sleepless nights, social anxiety, fear, relationship issue, performance at work, mood, self worth.

You feel like you can’t cope, you’re fed up, you’ve had enough. Your life isn’t what you want it to be. Living has become hard and there’s no joy in your world. It’s like everyone else except you is happy. You’re haunted by your past. You think you’ll never be happy again. You feel alone like no one else understands how hard your life is at the moment. On the outside you look fine but inside you feel like you’re dying. Everything you do feels like an act to look like you’re okay. You don’t know how to change things or what to do about it anymore.

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to work within a role where I'm able to help and support others. I see myself as someone who has the ability to demonstrate an attitude of respect and sensitivity towards others. Within my work, I aim to provide a comfortable environment and establish a warm therapeutic relationship, as a believe this is key factor within the therapeutic process For me therapy is like peeling an onion. It is up to you which layer of the onion you want to focus on and in how much detail.

My main work consists of Couples counselling as well as trauma focused work, which includes childhood trauma. The work involves psycho education around brain fragments, where clients work to assess when they are operating from the frontal lobe and when they switch to the limbic system where they are reliving old trauma memories. Since Covid there has been an increased demand for couples work. A lot of work is around working with couples in troubled relationships. I work with children and young people who have experienced trauma and sexual abuse as well as bereavement support work.

Hi I'm Sarah and I specialise in working anxiety, depression and trauma. Maybe you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed or exhausted. Maybe you are struggling to cope with a traumatic life event. Or maybe you are generally finding life unmanageable at the moment. At times we can lose our way unintentionally and then find it difficult to get back onto the right path. If this sounds familiar, my therapy approach can help you regain some strength, clarity and balance so that you can feel more calm and back in control of your life.

Going to therapy can be hard; having to share inner conflicts and pain can feel exposing, yet liberating. My purpose is to create an empowering environment with you for these vulnerabilities to be safely shared. At EK Therapy, my aim is to reduce barriers of access for individuals and communities that feel like care systems have not fully understood their needs. Embedded in Sikh Ethos, I value honesty, non-judgement and universal truth. “EK” in Gurmukhi means “One.” Integration of the Soul, Mind and Body means we’re able to reach a more fulfilled state and way of living.

I believe it takes great courage to reach out and look for support. However, I know it can be scary and overwhelming looking for the right person. Over the years I have been a therapist, I have supported many individuals to take back control over their lives and find the healing they had been long searching for. My training has enabled me to be able to work with complex emotions at a deep level. This is particularly effective when working with trauma and the impact of early childhood experiences. My warm and gentle approach ensures that our work together enables you to feel safe and grounded, working at a pace that suit you.

I am an experienced clinical psychologist who has extensive experience in supporting clients with a range of difficulties that impact on their mental health and overall wellbeing. I believe we all deserve to live a life where we feel empowered and able to cope with what life throws at us. Life becomes more manageable if we have a clear sense of who we are, what is genuinely important to us, and in what direction we want to take our lives. Reaching an understanding of how our past impacts on us in the present is often a key first step in developing an understanding of our internal world and how this affects us day to day.

Hello, I am glad you have found me and made your first step towards therapy! An inspiring quote by Dalai Lama once said, “Calm minds bring inner peace and self-confidence, so that’s very important for good health”. This resonates with me because our mental health is incredibly important to our well-being and our perceptions of the world we live in. I know that searching for a counsellor can be unnerving especially when you may feel overawed with angst or tension; despondent, grieving or struggling with relationship disputes. I recognise how that feels and the complications that may follow.
