About me

Hello, my name is Sarah. I trained to be a counsellor because I wanted to help others as I myself had been helped. I understand from my own personal experience what a big step it is to make the decision to start therapy as well as the importance in finding a counsellor who you can easily talk to and feel relaxed with.

I will work with you collaboratively, walking by your side - a sharing of your journey whilst offering a confidential, safe and supportive environment where you feel comfortable and can openly express and explore your feelings. I value honesty and respect and the importance of trust in the relationship.

Offering empathy and warmth I will listen without judgement. I aim to help you increase your understanding of yourself enabling you to gain a deeper insight into your problems.

I will:

Support you and respect your views

Put you at the heart of the work

Listen to the way you feel and how this affects you and others

Accept the way you are without judging

Help you to make the changes you would like to happen

Understand that it is not always easy to talk about problems and express feelings

I am passionate about the work that I do and enjoy seeing the positive differences that counselling can make helping people towards a happier life. I believe finding your own answers on a journey of self-discovery can be both empowering and life changing.

I am a qualified counsellor and work from a Person-Centred approach. I have over 30 years experience working in caring professions with children, young people and adults. Dependent upon your individual needs and preferences I offer short (a few targeted sessions) or longer term therapy. 

My counselling practice is based a few miles from Market Harborough in the beautiful and peaceful Langton's. I offer face to face counselling (working from my garden counselling room overlooking the countryside), online (Skype/Zoom) or telephone.

If you have any questions or you would like to make an appointment please get in touch whichever way is preferable - message me, phone call or text. If I am unable to answer your call immediately leave me a voicemail and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I endeavor to reply to all messages as soon as possible within 48 hours. Messages left over the weekend I will come back to you as soon as I can on Monday Morning.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
