Sarah is a psychodynamic psychotherapist
Why therapy and why now?
We can all experience times in our life when we feel stuck, frustrated, challenged or distressed. Therapy allows you the space to explore and bring awareness to your patterns of behaving and relating to yourself and others. I offer a confidential, non-judgmental space for you to explore at your own pace what brings you to therapy.
I work with clients on a wide range of issues including relationship and family difficulties, low mood, anxiety, trauma, feeling that life has lost meaning and purpose, shame, bereavement, depression, fertility, identity and self-esteem issues.
How I work
My work is informed by a belief that every individual has the capacity for growth and the importance of collaborative, respectful and compassionate relationships. My aim as a psychotherapist is to provide this type of relational environment for my clients.
My approach is psychodynamic, based on an understanding that early experience and past relationships are significant to how we relate to ourselves and others in the present day. I aim to work with both the unconscious and conscious components of experience, meaning the thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour we are aware of, as well as those that sit beyond our awareness.
I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and the FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling and adhere to their ethical guidelines.
There is a fixed fee of £75 for the consultation, payable by bank transfer prior to the session. If we decide to work together, an ongoing fee will be discussed and agreed between us.
I offer some low-fee places for full-time students and those on low-income.
