My way of working is somewhat dependent on you and your wants from a therapy space. I am trained to work with CBT, person-centred and attachment based therapy. I have done additional training in: Somatic Abolitionism, Emotional Regulation Skills and CBT adapted to work with those that self-define as autistic. I have worked with many clients and believe therapy works best by meeting the client where they are and towards what they identify they need. I work openly with race and other forms of systemic oppression in therapy and support clients from minoritised identities to explore this in therapy.

As an integrative therapist, I am relational in my approach, this style places great emphasis on the relationship between the client and the therapist. I believe the most important part of any therapy is to build a trusting relationship, where you can feel safe and secure so you feel able to share your story and experiences in a confidential, non-judgmental space where you can explore positive and challenging aspects of your life and any change you wish to explore or make. I have personal experience in sexual, physical, emotional and mental abuse; divorce; living with a narcissist; step-parenting; addiction and PTSD.

During our sessions together, we can explore whatever topics or issues you'd like to bring to therapy at your pace. In other words, I won't push you to talk about anything you don't want to. Also, I don't set 'homework' as many therapists do. Instead, I aim to work in a more flexible, relational way which is adapted to you and your circumstances.

Deciding upon counselling-or even asking for help is not an easy step to take. When you feel strong enough to take that first step, I will help you take time out, by creating a safe space where you will be seen, heard and can talk things through at your own pace. This really can make all the difference.

Hi, my name is Sarj, I have a doctorate in Clinical Psychology with over 10 years of mental health experience. Sometimes what we show others on the outside can feel different to the thoughts and feelings that are bubbling away on the inside. These thoughts may present as a critical part of you, these parts may leave you with emotions such as shame, guilt and anger. The emotions may leave you feeling anxious and urge you to try everything you can to block or avoid them. Whilst this works in the short run, in the long run, it can leave you feeling depressed and more disconnected from yourself and the people important to you.

Sleep or Insomnia Counsellors

How effective is treatment for insomnia?

The most effective treatments for insomnia are behavioral techniques that reduce anxiety, including anxiety about falling asleep, and allow the body’s natural cycles to be recalibrated. The most common treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), which researchers have found to be more useful than medication, with rates of success as high as 80 percent.

Are there specific medications for sleep problems?

There are many medications, both over-the-counter and prescription that treat sleep problems. Supplements such as melatonin are popular and may help, though there is little evidence that it is more effective than a placebo. Prescription medications such as zolpidem are sometimes prescribed.

Are there natural treatments for sleep problems?

There are many natural treatments for everyday sleep problems. Reducing blue-light emitting screens, setting a regular bedtime, regular exercise, reducing caffeine and nicotine consumption, and keeping the bedroom dark and cool at night are all lifestyle changes that can help those who struggle with sleep but may not reach the level of an insomnia diagnosis.

What’s the difference between having trouble falling asleep and insomnia?

Life events, stress, and anxiety can lead to sleepless nights for everyone from time to time. To be diagnosed with insomnia, a patient must experience trouble falling asleep, trouble remaining asleep, waking up too early, or non-restorative sleep at least three nights per week for at least one month. Sleep problems affect one-third to one-half of the population, while chronic insomnia affects about 10 to 15 percent of people.
