About me

Hello, my name is Sarah and I am a counsellor and art therapist with 10 years experience in private practice. I work in central Brighton & Hove, Newhaven and around *East Sussex.

*The home visit service is available in East Sussex in an approximate 10 mile radius of Newhaven: including Uckfield, Newick, Lewes, Seaford, the haven areas, Saltdean and Telscomb*

I offer an initial 30 minute consultation for £10, I understand how difficult it can be to find the counsellor that fits with you, by reading profiles here in the directory. I believe it's important that you feel you are working with the right person. I encourage you to meet a few counsellors before you make a decision, and there will be no pressure to make that decision in this initial session.

As a counsellor, I work from a Person Centred perspective. This means that I believe, you are the expert on your own experience: I will not try to analyse you, judge you, or solve your problems for you. Instead, I offer empathy, understanding and acceptance of you and your journey and provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore your issues, thoughts and feelings.

As a counsellor I have a great deal of experience with a wide variety of issues and have particular experience of working with;

Parents/carers of children with SEN issues

Issues relating to adult diagnosis of Autism, Dyslexia and other such conditions

Relationship and family

Suicidal thoughts/attempted suicide

Depression and anxiety

Chronic disability and illness


I have 20 years of professional experience working therapeutically with people with a variety of mental health problems, in the community and inpatient settings. This includes 7 years providing one-to-one support to people in who had survived a recent suicide attempt. My most recent CPD has been around Autism spectrum Conditions and Dyslexia/dyspraxia.


Services I offer include;

Face-to-face counselling in person

Face-to-face counselling via Skype

Face-to-face counselling at your own home

Low cost counselling is sometimes available upon request.

Workshop prices vary, but are usually around £50 for an 11-4pm session

I see counselling as a dynamic process, where we work together, building our relationship to support your individual process of growth and change. I believe in being honest in the therapy relationship, whilst always taking responsibility for my thoughts or feelings when I share them with you. Part of building a relationship will be finding ways to work together that feel right for you.

I work in an experiential way. This means I work with whatever comes up for you in the mind and body (emotions, thoughts, feelings, and the 'felt sense'). I can also offer various techniques that you may find useful such as focusing, chair work, parts work and art/creative therapy. However, everybody is different, and I will be led by you.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and abide by their ethical framework. I have monthly supervision.

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained in a degree-equivalent qualification in Art Therapy at the Instituut voor Klank en Vorm in Zutphen, Holland in 1997, and a foundation degree in Person Centred Counselling at the University of Brighton in 2009. I have completed a variety of other shorter training as part of my continuing professional development.

As a counsellor I have a great deal of experience with a wide variety of issues. The issues I have worked with include: relationship and family issues, suicidal thoughts and attempted suicide, major life changes, life-related and work-related stress, disability and illness, debt, anger issues, addiction, ageing, depression, anxiety and other mental health problems. In addition, I have 20 years of professional experience working therapeutically with people with a variety of mental health problems, including in inpatient settings. This also includes 7 years providing one-to-one support in the community to people in who had survived a recent suicide attempt, or who were bereaved by suicide.

I am an experienced therapeutic group facilitator and run therapy groups when there is sufficient demand. If you are interested in these please contact me.
