About Me

My name is Sarah. I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and registered member of the BACP.

For many reasons, at times in our live's, we may find ourselves experiencing difficulties which can get in the way of our functioning in everyday life and relationships. For instance, we may experience depression and anxiety or notice changes as a result of trauma.

Professional counselling offers a safe, non-judgmental space to explore our experiences. It can empower you to obtain new insight and establish a deeper understanding of self. It may also offer empowerment to change or enable a sense of acceptance.

I offer a professional, one-to-one counselling service, working in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework. This means, that I will work in accordance with the trust you have entrusted in me, in addition to keeping my training current and up to date. I will offer an assessment, to ensure that I am working within my level of proficiency and to ensure that I am able to meet your needs.

I work with integrity, within strong Professional boundaries. For me, it is so important to work within a robust and safe ethical framework, honouring your privacy and autonomy. This, helping to create a sense of trust whilst adding a richness to our therapeutic relationship.

As part of the therapeutic process, I will work alongside you to create a safe containing space, which I will firmly hold for your therapeutic journey, offering encouragement and empowerment, whilst being responsive to your changing needs.
