About me

Hello, I'm Sarah.

I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, Clinical Supervisor and a registered member of the BACP. I am also a Sex and Relationship Therapist in training, and a student member of COSRT.

As a therapist, I work within Professional boundaries and in accordance with the BACP ethical framework. I work with integrity, honouring your privacy and autonomy. This, helping to create a sense of trust whilst adding a richness to our therapeutic relationship.

Life is not a linear journey. It is full of highs and lows, and somewhere in the space between is the opportunity for personal growth.

For many reasons, at times in our lives, we may experience an overwhelm of emotions. We may even lose connection with ourselves. This may be in response to significant life events, including bereavement, loss of relationships, betrayal and financial hardship.

As a therapist, I will work alongside you to create and hold a safe containing space, to explore those things that may bring you distress. To unpack your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental environment, at a pace that feels ok for you.

As a sex and relationship therapist in training, I apply these same professional standards and work to COSRT ethical framework.

Sex and relationship therapy, can be really helpful in supporting a person, inclusive of any gender, experiencing a sexual function problem, once a biological cause has been ruled out.

I am able to help with a range of problems including:

·       Vaginismus

·       Dyspareunia

·       Vulvodynia

·        Pain and Penetration

·       Loss of Desire

·       Unreliable Erections

·       Early Ejaculation

·       Delayed Ejaculation

·       Compulsive Sexual Behaviour

Member organisations

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

Accredited Register Scheme

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).
