Sarah Simpson BA BSc (Hons) Psych. HG.DIP.P. MHGI
I run a busy private practice covering all of Cornwall but based in the Truro area. I am DBS (CRB) checked and so welcome the opportunity to work with children and in the respective schools too. I am also happy to work with the GP surgeries as required. Whilst most of my clinics are on a face to face basis, I am happy to offer telephone therapy which is obviously more convenient and economical for some. This service is ideal for those who have limited time or accessibility and can be provided in 30 or 60 minute appointments.
The therapy I offer combines proven therapeutic techniques, based on the recent neuro-science findings, to relieve emotional distress and help people find solutions as quickly as possible. I must stress that all appointments are only made on an 'as need to' basis, this may mean one off appointments, weekly appointments or sporadic appointments to meet specific needs.
The emotional health conditions I specialise in are;
- General Anxiety and associated conditions:
- Panic Attacks
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Eating disorders
- Divorce and relationship problems, including children and contact arrangements
- Self-esteem and self confidence
- Rewind Technique
I have also worked as a Family Consultant for individuals and regional lawyers. I helped both adults and children through the difficult transition of divorce and with all aspects of relationship issues and emotional wellbeing.

Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BA and a BSc first class Honours in Psychology. I also have an Advanced Practitioner Diploma in Psychotherapy and a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy In addition I have trained extensively and gained experience in dealing with all aspects of trauma (PTSD), phobias and OCD.
I have considerable experience of working with children and adolescents and work closely with parents, schools and universities to support and provide minimal intervention for vulnerable age groups
My experience has been gained through individual work and with working along side professional multi-disciplinary teams of specialists. My current clinic has been largely established through referrals and word of mouth recommendations. This has involved working with all ages from the very young to the more elderly, incorporating all conditions of emotional health.
My career has been supported by in-depth and innovative psychological research for government and NHS driven projects, with training in areas as far field as EEG brain activity measure and analysis.
During my work within the hospital I addressed the behavioural and cognitive aspects of clients behaviour. A large part of my role was to provide emotional and therapeutic support to relatives and partners.
I hold approved professional indemnity insurance and have been DBS CRB checked and authorised.
I am a graduate member of the BPS.
