Hi, my name's Sarah and I'm a clinical psychologist. The decision to see a therapist can feel daunting and anxiety provoking. Please be reassured that this is absolutely normal. In a therapy session I will give you my support and the compassion that you may be needing at this time. I would like to help you by first gaining a good understanding of the difficulties that you are facing. Using my expertise (from many years of psychology training and work with clients), my aim would be to work with you to find a way forward that is going to enhance your life and enable you to live a life that feels richer and more fulfilling.

If you are feeling anxious, stressed, depressed, confused or suffering with addiction issues cognitive behavioral therapy can help. I understand how finding the right therapist to work with can be confusing. That’s why I encourage you to have a free telephone consultation first so you can decide for yourself whether we will be a good match. I work with clients while they process and resolve the issues they are facing and find real long lasting solutions to their problems. Somewhere inside you is the person you were meant to be, so let’s release that person, so you can move forwards with clarity and direction.

As humans, life can feel a bit messy for us all at times. We all experience a wide array of emotions on this journey called life, but there are times when we feel more stressed, overwhelmed, or lower in mood than usual and for longer periods of time. This can be difficult to navigate through by yourself, so you may feel talking therapy could be helpful to help understand and explore what may be going on and to help you move forward. Building awareness of our behaviours and thought processes isn’t always easy and is often avoided, but with support and compassion, I can sit with you through it.

Have you been struggling through life, feeling overwhelmed and wishing you had someone to talk to? It could just be a general sense of feeling down or more deep-rooted feelings of loneliness, anxiety, stress and depression. If this is you then talking to a trained therapist presents the opportunity for you to explore your issues. My beliefs are that it is important to recognise that no two people’s journeys are the same and because of this I utilise my skills and training to tailor counselling sessions.

Hello, thank you for taking time to read my profile, in doing so you've already taken a step towards finding support.

I offer a confidential, welcoming, relaxing space where you can be yourself, one where we explore your needs.

Considering Counselling can be quite nerve racking. However it is important to remember that if you choose to engage with it and accept that changes can and do happen for the better, it has the potential to be life changing. If you are suffering with low mood, low self esteem, anxiety or indeed something much more specific that needs attention then you should book an initial consultation. My experience covers issues named above but so many more. As a trained Counsellor, and Psychotherapist, I believe our relationship is key to a successful change in self defeating behaviour so you can move on to a positive place.

It can seem like the hardest thing to do to access counselling, but it can be life changing if you take that first step. You may not be entirely clear on what you want but just have a feeling that things don't feel right and you have decided that you want to understand what, why and how to refocus and live the life you feel is best for you. Or perhaps you are very aware of a struggle with difficulties, which may already be formally diagnosed by another professional, and you want to regain some control instead of feeling that these issues take over. I can support people in achieving their goals wherever they are in their journey.

Are you living with feelings of self- doubt, blame, anger or shame? Do you need help to cope with depression or anxiety? Maybe you have suffered loss, and doubt your ability to sustain meaningful relationships with family and friends. Perhaps you are in a relationship that is stuck in the rut, or mired in hopelessness, negativity, and mistrust. It may be that your relationship has changed from a loving one to one of repeated misunderstandings, heated arguments or frosty silence. Stressful life events can bring about such difficulties, or sometimes disappointments simply accumulate over time.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
