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.

Please contact me to discuss session rates.

Discounts offered to student counsellors and those training

I believe it is important to explore what working together might be like, I therefore, offer a 30 - 40 minute session FOC and cover the cost of this.

After the initial 30 minutes we will together decide whether we can work together and gain focus for our sessions moving forwards.

I like to offer this to my clients as I believe that this gives space for us to explore how we could work together and see if how I work matches your need.

When I work

I am providing sessions via a secure online video platform or telephone.

Further information

Hi, I'm Sarah

Its important for me to start by saying,

I know, I get it, I've been there.

​I've had my own challenges with my relationship with myself, my mind and body. Struggling with excessive exercise and how my body looks. Feeling lost, life-less, fearful, anxious and deflated.

Constantly, doubting my self, trying to please others and putting everyone else at the top of my ‘to do list’.

I know how you feel,

I've worked through it,

so have my clients and SO CAN YOU!

I am a Qualified and Registered Therapist, Certified Psychological Coach, Trainer,

Mental Health Advocate, Speaker and Wellbeing Expert, passionate about facilitating positive growth and change.

I champion individuals to unapologetically prioritise themselves and their own needs.

Empowering you to completely transform your relationship with your mind,

your body and ultimately yourself.

Working together to banish

  • anxiety
  • fear
  • stress
  • and self-doubt
  • silencing your inner critic
  • removing self-limiting beliefs.

So you can stop neglecting yourself; and no longer feel resentful, resigned and deflated.

FINALLY, respecting yourself.

At last, feeling

  • confident
  • carefree
  • compassionate
  • congruent
  • AND courageous

LIVING LIFE how you imaged and becoming the champion of your own life.

I empower women who are ready to reclaim their relationship with themselves, so they can prioritise their minds, praise their bodies and unapologetically put their needs first.
