However, I do favour the psychodynamic approach, and attachment-based theories strongly influence my way of working.
Therapy can be for anyone, it can be for growth, healing and learning, as much as for working through something. Choosing to set aside a pocket of time and space just for you, can provide relief from stresses of modern-day living, giving you a chance to recognise what is really important to you and working out what steps you want to take towards the life you want for yourself. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to explore things that are troubling you, process past experiences and work towards any goals you might have.

My practice is informed by psychodynamic, person-centred and attachment-based theories.
In my practice, I work with people who find it difficult to know and express what they want. I also work with clients who have experienced loss, trauma and displacement and therefore lack a sense of safety and belonging. I am experienced in working with people who find it challenging to regulate their emotions and fall into uncontrollable outbursts of confusion, anger, terror and worry. Finally, I specialise in working with individuals who struggle to form and sustain satisfying relationships and so suffer from feelings of worthlessness and emptiness.

I think therapy is about understanding, developing and changing. I am a clinical psychologist with many years experience of working with adults to help them to identify what the issues are for them, understand where these issues have come from, and how to make changes which will improve how they feel about their lives. I work with people with anxiety and anxiety disorders, low mood, low self-esteem, low confidence and those living with the effects of traumatic experiences. I also offer comprehensive assessments for those who have yet to fully understand what is happening for them, to help move them on in their lives.

We all encounter ups and downs in our lives, and most of the time we can overcome them, and sometimes we may need a helping hand. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by emotions that are difficult to understand, gaining a deeper insight through exploration may help in managing those feelings. I can offer a safe and non-judgemental space to delve into what is going on for you. Counselling can help with gaining a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems.

How to describe the massive impact of loss and grief on our hearts, minds and daily life? The weight, chaos and turmoil of grief is a common experience which plays out uniquely in each of us. We lose interest in just about everything; nothing seems to matter. We're often frightened, wondering whether how we feel today we'll still be feeling in the distant future. We're often angry, intolerant of others. We seek so many reassurances... We don't want to let go of our grief because it's connected powerfully to the one we love and miss. How can we learn to let grief share our life? How can we understand it? How can we keep afloat?

Each one of us struggles in life at one point or another. When the difficulties in life feel too much to manage on our own, counselling and psychotherapy offer a confidential and safe environment in which we can explore these difficulties and find the direction to lasting changes. Often our current difficulties have their roots in the past. Problems emerge when we stick to our old ways of coping. Counselling can help us make links to the past and find more adaptive ways of coping. It can help us to tune in to our emotions and thus understand what matters the most and what needs to be changed.

How are you navigating life at the moment? You may have been suffering from emotional discomfort for a while, perhaps it's more recent or maybe the pandemic has had an effect on your mental health. You are not alone, 1 in 4 of us are affected by mental health issues at some point in our lives. Looking for support to understand what you are feeling can be life changing. How we make sense of ourselves, the world and our place in it can affect our relationships, friendships, careers, social lives perhaps even robbing us of our potential. Therapy, through insight and application can deliver acceptance, change, clarity and relief.

Living with difficult family relationships, isolation, grief, loss, worry or prejudice can leave you feeling anxious, stuck, depressed, shut down, disconnected or drained. Maybe the values or beliefs of your family or culture are at odds with your authentic identity, creating an inner conflict. Perhaps you have become wrapped in your job or the expectations of others and have lost touch with who you really are. Have you learned to put others first to the detriment of yourself? Maybe you jump into romantic relationships too quickly and deeply – or have decided you are better off by yourself and yet part of you longs for connection.

Hello. I'm Sarah. I am a COSCA qualified therapist and an experienced Doctor of Counselling and Psychotherapy.  As your therapist, my main focus is to be fully present in our sessions and, at all times, to listen and respond to you with care and respect. I'll work with you to really get to know yourself and understand why you feel the way you feel and why you do the things you do. From there, we can work together to find a balance between processing the past, being with the present, and patterning new ways of being that are more in line with what matters to you, what you value and need, and who you are now.

People come to counselling for many reasons. Sometimes this decision is motivated by a need for change or perhaps having to deal with unexpected change. For others it may be a desire to talk, to understand and be understood. I believe there can be real value in talking with someone who is trained and experienced to listen in a way that allows you to feel heard and understood. I provide a safe and non-judgemental space where we can explore the issues that you want to address.
