About me

Hello. I am Sarah Eva. I am an experienced psychotherapist and an accredited EMDR practitioner and consultant (supervisor). I am a qualified CBT therapist and have completed training in Internal Family Systems (IFS) Levels 1 and 2.

I provide safe and confidential therapy services to adults and adolescents (16+) for a range of presenting difficulties, from depression and anxiety, including OCD, to childhood trauma, including sexual abuse and complex PTSD. I have a clinic in Brighton, England and offer online therapy sessions.

I am accredited with BACP and EMDR UK, 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 offering therapy 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 AXA, CBT Clinics and Vitality.

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. I have worked at various Barnardo's projects in Tunbridge Wells, Fegans, a charity who provide low-cost counselling to families, couples and individuals, and a local grammar school.

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

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
