About me

I am Sarah Eva. I am an experienced counsellor, CBT therapist and accredited EMDR practitioner. I provide a safe and confidential service to adults and adolescents.

It can be difficult to seek therapy for ourselves or for the people we love. It is a courageous step requiring consideration and commitment. When we view our life events in self-negating ways, we can become psychologically stuck. We may avoid exciting challenges, stay in jobs where we are miserable, engage in unhelpful and problematic relationships, and pursue destructive patterns of behaviour. Often, we are so overwhelmed that we neglect to identify our strengths and competencies.

It is a fact of life that we will all experience difficulties. Throughout our lifespan, we will all encounter loss, fear, disappointment and distress. People who are important to us will die, leave us or behave badly. These experiences may leave us feeling hurt but the way that we process these painful but normal life events may further exacerbate our emotional distress. The good news is that there is much research to confirm that an empathic and effective counselling experience can alleviate and resolve this unnecessary distress.

I hold clinics in Brighton and Tunbridge Wells and offer both face-to-face and online therapy sessions. I work with a range of presenting difficulties from depression and anxiety, including OCD, to childhood trauma, including sexual abuse and complex PTSD.

I am an accredited BACP and EMDR therapist, and I draw from a range of evidence-based therapeutic models based on current and advanced interventions that I can personalise according to the unique needs of my clients.

I have been counselling since 2000 and supporting people emotionally for over 30 years. I have worked in the voluntary, educational, public and private sectors including Barnardo’s, Fegans and The Priory.

I am an approved counsellor for all major healthcare providers including Aviva, AXA and BUPA.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience working in the voluntary, educational, public and private sectors. These include The Priory at Ticehurst and Brighton and Hove where I also facilitated psycho-educational groups.

Accessibility

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.
