About Sarah

I used to be like you. I was depressed for many years but I didn’t know what to do about it. I went to see therapists who sat there blankly while I cried. I left and cried some more, wondering what was wrong with me. I felt so bad about myself that I would simply stay in bed and try to sleep most of the day away. I was unhappy in relationships because I either chose people who didn’t treat me well or I sabotaged relationships with people who did. I knew I needed help, but I couldn’t find it. I read books, I tried to eat better and to exercise. I was frustrated because I was willing to change but I just couldn’t work out what was needed.
When I started training as a therapist, I finally began to understand why I was depressed, how our environment and experiences affect us. I began to feel less crazy because there were reasons I felt the way I did and there were other people who understood how I felt because they had been through similar things. This helped me to feel less alone and ashamed.
Now I help people understand the impact their experiences have had on them and what to do next. I no longer live my life under a black cloud. When I am struggling I am able to ask the right people for support. I don't hate myself, I don't expect perfection and my inner voice is (mostly!) helpful and calm. I would love to help you do the same! 
I specialise in CPTSD and working with clients from dysfunctional or chaotic backgrounds. I help survivors of childhood abuse and trauma feel better about themselves.

Why did you choose to become a therapist?

I suffered from depression from about 15 and had several therapists before I found the right one. I knew that once I had helped myself I wanted to help others feel better about themselves and use what I had learned to help people reach their full potential.

Why do you think integrative therapy is the most effective form of therapy?

I trained in the type of therapy that helped me the most, I had 4 different therapists before my psychotherapy training. The type of therapy that I do takes into account your upbringing and the environment in which you grew up. You will learn about the subconscious rules that you learned as a young child and whether they are still relevant to you today.

How would you describe your therapy session & approach?

I'm not the kind of therapist who listens and nods. I ask questions, give feedback and am happy for you to ask me what I'm thinking, feeling or why we're going in a particular direction. I'll help you to explore your issues, understand the impact they've had on you and make the necessary changes to get the results you want.
