My name is Sarah and I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I am currently offering sessions online using Zoom and in-person in Bayswater.
Throughout our lives we have experiences that affect us. We may feel that life going well when something unexpected happens, a loss, a relationship breakdown, illness or work-related issues and we might feel destabilised, distressed, anxious or angry. At other times we may not know why but we feel sad, anxious, depressed or stuck and unable to move forward. Whatever your experience, my aim is to establish a space in which you feel safe to explore what is affecting you, for us to unfold together what it means for you, and to help create lasting change in your life as you move forward.
Reaching out for support can feel difficult and overwhelming at times. I offer a free initial phone conversation to talk through your reasons for coming to therapy now, which allows for any questions you might have and to see if we think we could work well together.
I look forward to speaking with you.
Training, qualifications & experience
After deciding to leave the private sector and communications industries I began my counselling and psychotherapy training at WPF Therapy (Westminster Pastoral Foundation), followed by Birkbeck University and Regent’s University, where I completed my qualifying training as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. Having trained at a number of institutions with differing modalities, I offer an integrative approach, drawing on different frameworks to understand your experiences and support you in exploring them.
In addition to my private practice I also work in the charity sector and within educational establishments. I also have an academic background in Feminism and bring this thinking to my work.
Some of the issues I have worked with in the past include:
- Bereavement and loss
- Relationship issues
Women’s health including fertility, abortion and peri-natal concerns
- PGDip in Counselling and Psychotherapy
- Cert of HE in Psychodynamic Counselling and Organisational Psychodynamics
Certificate in Counselling Skills
MA Women’s Studies
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.
Accredited register membership

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).
