I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist working in private practice in the Malvern area. I offer psychotherapy to individuals and couples on a short or long-term basis. I provide an ethical and confidential service in a private and peaceful setting.
My approach is integrative, holistic and creative, recognising that we are body mind, heart and spirit and that our struggles and searching need to be approached from all of these perspectives.
My specialism is couples therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained in integrative and transpersonal psychotherapy at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education in London and first started working with clients in 1997.
I qualified as a couples psychotherapist in 2010 and also completed a training in psychosexual therapy at Tavistock Relationships in 2014.
My commitment to professional development of all kinds is ongoing.

Areas of counselling I deal with
We can highly recommend Sarah as a therapist. She is non-judgemental, sensitive and empathetic, as well as having a deeply spiritual nature. When we are with her it is as though we are removed from the ‘normal’ world as she creates a special, safe place in which she skilfully enables us to open up and understand ourselves, our relationship and move forward. We feel privileged to have found Sarah, and hope that others too can discover the space and peace she provides in which to rebuild their relationships.
Sarah has been exemplary in her treatment of me. She has enormous sensitivity, intelligence, compassion and understanding which has helped me to come to terms with the tragedies and helped me live again. What a gift!
Sarah takes a holistic view of the relationship, recognising that all aspects are interrelated. This approach has been incredibly helpful in revealing issues that either one or both of us were unaware of initially. Sarah is very empathetic and kind, and has been able to put us at our ease in a situation that is inevitably potentially stressful. In spite of ourselves and our natural ‘British reservation’ she has enabled us to speak about difficult topics with openness and honesty.
Sarah is phenomenal in the way she is able to connect with me on an entirely different plane – quite extraordinary in fact. Her unique ability to help rebuilds a sense of hope and agency for us lucky ones on the receiving end.
I can’t believe that we could have let all this go when here we are stronger and better than ever before.
I feel completely changed…astonishing!
It’s been life transforming.
