Sarah Freed, Counsellor & Supervisor, Couples Therapist, Creative Arts Therapist
Hello, I'm Sarah Freed and I have been a practising therapist for over 15 years, originally within an NHS setting and now in private practice.
I work with individuals and couples. I also provide professional supervision for other therapists and counsellors.
My ethos is that healing can come in many shapes and forms and I incorporate creative activities into my talking therapy to aid the healing process at a deeper, more sub-conscious level. You don't need to be 'good at art'. Creativity encourages us to 'play' and explore, important aspects of being human, which often are forgotten in adulthood.
Originally trained in person-centred/ psychodynamic therapy, I consider myself an integrative therapist combining aspects of cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and transpersonal therapy. I will welcome you as a unique individual and work with whatever you bring, in a way that feels right for you.
Prior to my psychotherapy training, I worked in the private sector for many years. I also worked within a learning and development setting where I provided coaching and performance feedback for employees.
My ideology encourages wellbeing at every level - emotional, physical, spiritual and mental (or the mind). Balance in all areas is the key to a contended life.
I am based in the pretty village of Lode, just outside Cambridge, just off Junction 35 of the A14. If you are more of an outdoors person, the natural surroundings provide a perfect backdrop for walking therapy or 'Ecotherapy' to give it it's proper name. This simply involves walking and talking in the great outdoors.
Whatever challenge you face at the moment, therapy could help you take a fresh look at what has been, what is and what is to come.
