About me

Hi! My name is Sarah, an Intuitive Counsellor with a Passion for Soul work, Empowerment and Transformation.

Soul Rainbow Counselling provides Online/Telephone Psychodynamic, Trauma-Informed and Spiritual Counselling which embraces a holistic approach to Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual well-being.

My approach to counselling mainly involves working at depth and looks at childhood experiences to help make sense of the issues you have in your adult life. Raising awareness of these experiences helps you release old/stuck emotional wounds, become more authentic and empowers you to choose a different way of thinking, feeling and behaving that helps improve your quality of life and overall well-being.

If you have long term unresolved mental health or relationship issues and are stuck in unhealthy repetitive life patterns it is likely there is a deeper root cause and this type of therapy would be very beneficial.

My Passion and Experience lead me to specialise in helping people with:

  • Anxiety and Stress
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Abuse and Neglect (Emotional, Psychological, Physical, Sexual & Spiritual)
  • Complex PTSD (symptoms include; emotional flashbacks, toxic shame, self-abandonment, inner critic and social anxiety)
  • Inner Child wounding
  • Relationship Issues
  • Bereavement, Grief, Illness and Loss
  • Life transitions
  • Midlife crisis
  • Self-discovery and Growth
  • Spirituality and Spiritual Awakening.

About My Unique Service

Soul Rainbow Counselling is about believing and trusting in the transformative power of healing and self-discovery. I understand that life’s journey can present us with challenges, obstacles and times of uncertainty. Yet, these difficulties are the catalyst to our personal growth where we can discover within us our unique spectrum of experiences, emotions and possibilities.

The Rainbow teaches us that through the hard times, darkness and rain, colour and beauty always comes back to us. We learn that the vibrancy of life is experienced through embracing both the light and the dark aspects of life and oneself. The treasure really does lie within each of us.

My Mission

With my expertise and genuine care for each individual, my mission is to create a safe, compassionate and supportive space for you to explore your inner world and navigate life’s complexities. We will work together to uncover the strengths and inner resources you possess, empowering you to overcome challenges and discover your own vibrant path towards a more harmonious and fulfilling life.

Every person is unique and my approach is tailored to your individual needs, respecting your identity, autonomy and experiences.

Please contact me or see my website for further information.

Member organisations

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.
