Sarah Vaughan Reg.MBACP, Dip. Couns., Cert. Supervision.
Sarah is an experienced integrative counsellor and supervisor. There are times in life when we feel the need for the support of others to help restore our life balance, live with traumatic experiences and reflect on our personal journey. Would you like to be listened to in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental and supportive environment?
Counselling sessions with Sarah offer the opportunity to help you look at problems from a different perspective, gaining insight that will help you overcome painful thoughts.

I offer counselling supervision to both trainee and qualified counsellors. My supervision is informed by the Integrative approach whilst having a firm base in Person Centred core values. I feel that I can offer a space in which a collaborative and supportive relationship can evolve and where supervisees can explore their challenges and experiences. I understand and respect supervisees need for automony in their own practice and am able to support this through effective review and reflection.
I aim to assist my supervisees to provide good practice in an ethical and professional way by giving experienced and supportive third person perspective.
