About me

Thank you for visiting my page.

I am Sarah, an integrative trained professional counsellor and an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  I work for the NHS alongside my private practice.

Life can be difficult and overwhelming which can affect our ability to function on a daily basis.  Many are currently experiencing anxiety and depression which can leave you feeling stuck and finding it difficult to cope with daily life.  Sometimes it can be hard to figure out a way through.

Counselling can have a powerful impact in helping you to make sense of your feelings and work through them in a nurturing space. Often, being fully seen and heard in a supportive environment can help to reduce those negative feelings and bring you peace of mind.

I work as an integrative counsellor which means I will use a combination of approaches to help you understand what you bring to counselling and I can tailor the approaches to suit your individual needs. I am also trained in EMDR therapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming.

Our therapy sessions will offer you a safe, non-judgemental space to work through your difficult feelings and help you to make choices that support and nourish you rather than repeating old behaviour patterns.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
