Sarah Freed, Specialist in Relationships, Anxiety, Depression and Loss
I have been a practicing therapist for over 15 years, within an NHS setting, organisations and now in private practice. I work with adults - individuals and couples.
I specialise in relationships, anxiety, depression and loss. But I have experience in many other areas - please see list below.
I aim to promote the development of wellbeing at every level - emotional, physical, spiritual and mental (or the mind). I strongly believe that balance in all areas is the key to a contended life. People come to therapy for lots of different reasons, but here are some ideas about how therapy can help:
- improve empathy and communication in relationships
- reduce anger, stress, anxiety, depression
- ease the pain of bereavement
- understand more deeply sexuality, identity, spirituality, cultural issues and beliefs
- promote a more positive, flexible mind-set
- create a healthier work/ life balance
- provide the development of tools and coping strategies to use during difficult times
- promote a sense of personal liberation and autonomy
- allow you to take personal responsibility
- encourage the development of greater self-discipline
- improve self-esteem and confidence
I consider myself an integrative therapist. Originally trained in person-centred/ psychodynamic therapy, I combine these approaches with elements of CBT, mindfulness, transpersonal (spiritual/Jungian) therapy and creative arts 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, within a learning and development setting where I provided coaching and performance feedback for employees.
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 beautiful 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. Please get in touch for more information.
My fee is £50 for individuals and £65 for couples (all sessions are 50 minutes)
