Often people searching for support don’t quite know what they are looking for. With so many different ways of treating what you may be suffering with it can often seem overwhelming just looking for the best therapist for you. Do you really have the time to be researching what all the different therapies do? I didn’t! When I needed therapy, I wanted support as soon as possible. I spoke to a few therapists and went with who sounded the friendliest. Hello, I am Sarah Devine, and I am a qualified psychotherapist and trauma psychotherapist. I specialize in trauma, PTSD and complex, developmental PTSD.

If your mental health has been compromised lately, you are in the right place. Making your emotional and physical wellbeing a priority, is a good place for us to start. Currently I work closely with bereaved clients and support them through their grief process. Talking through loss in a non-judgemental space is known to be therapeutic. I am also trained in working with clients suffering with PTSD. Trauma can be caused by many reasons and exploring this openly and honestly can aid in restoration.

Most clients that I see are suffering with anxiety, depression and stress. Most of this is caused by underlying issues such as low self-esteem, relationships issues and addiction to name a few. We're often aware of what our problems are but do not feel able to cope and need some support. Distressing situations and feelings can have such a destructive impact on our lives and therapy works by accepting your feelings, helping you to gain a different perspective, whilst challenging old negative beliefs; so you can move forward with a happier and healthier outlook on life.

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.
