Sarah Osborne-Dip. TA Practice MBACP,UKATA
2 Quarry View
I have 2 practice locations,near Lewes and in Crowborough where I offer short term and long term counselling and psychotherapy to individuals, including teenagers and couples.I am happy to see clients in whichever location is more convenient for them and can offer evening and weekend appointments.
I offer a free initial meeting to see if I am the right person for you and I do offer concessions.
My therapeutic background is Transactional analysis which is a theory of personality, communication and development. I incorporate other techniques into my work including CBT techniques where appropriate.I am also a member of BACP and UKATA.
I have many years experience of working with many conditions, including depression, anxiety including generalised anxiety disorder, loss,domestic abuse, relationship difficulties and family issues, trauma and addictions,those with bi polar or on the autistic spectrum.
I will offer you the opportunity to talk openly in a confidential and secure environment and I will listen carefully, empathetically and without judgement. I will treat you with respect and integrity and will tailor my therapeutic approach to support the changes you wish to make to the way you think, feel and behave and the ways you relate to others.
