During times of personal difficulty, distress, or crisis, reaching out can often feel like showing a sign of weakness when in fact it takes a lot of courage and shows great strength. I can help and support you to find ways of coping with, and working through these challenges to enable you to move forward in a positive and healthy way.
My name is Sarah Gascoyne, I am an Integrative Psychotherapist. I work following a developmental-relational approach drawing upon different theories from different psychotherapeutic approaches, and using the client-therapist relationship as the central focus of the healing process. I help you to understand your way of relating, being and functioning in the here and now, by also reflecting on and exploring your development history, to help you gain insight and understanding as to why you may be experiencing your current challenges and struggles. Through this process I will help and support you to find new ways of being and relating enabling you to move forward in a positive and healthy way. To facilitate this work I offer a discreet, confidential, neutral and supportive space creating an environment that will help you to feel safe and secure. I offer a warm, empathic, non judgmental approach and endeavour to work collaboratively with you throughout our work together.
I offer an initial session free of charge as I feel it is important that when you are about to engage on a therapeutic journey that the therapeutic environment is the right one for you. By offering an initial session free of charge gives you the opportunity to meet me and decide whether you feel comfortable working with me and gives me the opportunity to ensure I can offer you the right therapeutic support for you.
