Hello. My name is Sarah

and I would love to help you

Most people come to therapy wanting to make sense of what is going on for them. Why do I feel this way. And how do I start to feel better. 

It is my firm belief that whatever situation you are in, or however you are feeling, there is nothing 'wrong' with you - the way you are, what you are experiencing right now or the situation you are in, are as a result of the culmination of a wealth of different life experiences that you have had so far.

Our upbringing and wider experiences create patterns of thought and behaviour that are often largely unconscious to us, which means we keep repeating them. Psycho-education and exploration in therapy helps you understand those experiences, the impact they had on you, and different ways of seeing them now. This is never about blame, it is about understanding, acceptance, and change.

Why is therapy different to talking to a friend or a family member? 

Therapy is different because unlike with a friend or family, you do not need to worry about the impact of what you say. You do not need to worry about me not approving of what you say, being hurt by it, or jumping in and telling you what to do. Therapists are trained to really listen and understand, and it is the very fact that I am not part of your every day life that gives you the freedom to fully express yourself. 

"Expression is the opposite of depression"    Dr Edith Eger

"When a person realizes he has been deeply heard, his eyes moisten. I think in some real sense he is weeping for joy. It is as though he were saying, 'Thank God, somebody heard me. Someone knows what it's like to be me'"
