Sara Turner, (Mst) Accredited & Registered UKCP
Are you needing to find better ways of coping with your life where you are not judged? Do you need a supportive space to understand your relationships better? Through understanding at your own pace, and recognising your difficulties, you can bring about changes to keep long term. I offer genuine warmth, space, and confidentiality throughout our work together.
I have significant NHS experience working for psychological services with adults in a setting in Oxford, as well as a private practice where I can offer open ended work with people who have varying difficulties, which may be long endured and complicated. I lead a service in an organisational setting, and I also offer private work with adolescents. I welcome young people and adults with Autistic Spectrum Difficulties.
I recommend we meet for a 1 hour consultation the first time, and discuss if therapy feels the right thing for you, whilst gaining a sense for the way we might best work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over 12 years’ experience working in the NHS with Adults and Child and Adolescent Mental Health, offering long and short term work. I am an accredited member of UKCP and a registered psychodynamic therapist, subscribing to UKCP (UPCA) published code of ethics.
I offer broad ranging work with adults and adolescents, as well as sessions with students to help building resilience throughout stressful exam and academic lifestyles.
