About me

Hi I'm Sarah, 

I'm a fully qualified and insured integrative counsellor with 7 years of post graduate experience. 

What I Offer?

Integrative counselling is a relational based model of counselling meaning that we look at all the relationships we have around us. This doesn't just mean people, it can relate to anything For example a job you once loved that has changed or ended. Integrative counselling also means I have training in different models of counselling and can integrate them into our work. My core model is person centred and I have integrated this into the counselling I provide meaning that the time I offer is about you. 

If you are feeling sad, Struggling with Social anxiety, Depression or generalised anxiety disorder. I can offer a warm and non judgemental safe space to support you to navigate the hurdles you may be facing. Due to Covid restrictions I am only available via online or telephone.

About me

I am 38, a wife and a mum of 3 boys. I starting training as a counsellor in 2009 whilst pregnant with my youngest. I had gained an interest in this area after struggling with depression and anxiety. I know how much counselling at that difficult time helped me find my voice and allowed me a safe space express myself. 

My proudest achievement was graduating from University as this taught me that we are stronger than we give our selves credit for. My Dyslexia made studying a challenge at times but I have learnt to love that part of myself, as at times it gives me a unique view of the world and having a fresh pair of eyes and ears on a difficulty can really help.

It is a real privilege to be part of someone's journey to self discovery and I understand the importance of this being the right fit for you.
