About me

Hi there! Thanks for taking a look at my profile-I hope that you feel able to contact me to arrange an appointment. My name is Sarah and I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society and the Health and Care Professions Council. I offer specialist psychological assessment and intervention to adolescents and adults at my Chelmsford clinic or at their home address.

My aim is to support you in understanding, and overcoming, the emotional difficulties that you are facing. I offer a warm, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore your difficulties and to support you in finding a way towards positive change. I work collaboratively with my clients and draw upon a number of theories to inform my practice.

I effectively treat a wide range of emotional difficulties including: anxiety, depression/low mood, panic, low self-esteem, anger, OCD, phobias, academic stress, work-related stress. I treat mild, moderate and severe presentations.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
