About me

My name is Sarah.

I am a qualified therapist with a BA (Hons) in Counselling. I'm a registered member of the BACP, I observe their Ethical Framework.

I'm currently offering online and telephone counselling.

Life is certainly on uncertain at the moment!

Do you feel overwhelmed or stuck?

I understand that it can be challenging reaching out for help. Sometimes it can be difficult to talk to family or friends about how you're really feeling.

Life can throw struggles our way! Whatever your situation, some experiences can create difficult emotions - maybe grief, guilt, sadness, confusion, anger or low self-esteem, which I can help you to process during our therapy work together.

I work with people who want to gain a greater understanding of themselves and their relationships and help facilitate change.

​My approach to counselling is humanistic and relational.  I respect and value each person as a unique individual, you are the expert on your life, I am there with you to make sense of how you feel.

Like you, I'm a human being, I won't baffle you with psychology. I hope to provide a warm, non-judgemental, respectful and supportive environment in which you can feel safe to talk.

If you feel I might be the right therapist for you, please don't hesitate to contact me.

We will start with initial assessment, which will be a discussion about what has brought you to counselling. We will discuss the therapeutic contract and what you are hoping to gain from our time together, which will also help you decide whether I am right for you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
