Hello and welcome.


I'm Sarah and I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor offering individual counselling. I would like to offer you the space to explore past or present difficulties in order for you to feel less anxious, worried or depressed and so you can lead a more fulfilling and positive life.

Are you feeling overwhelmed with your job/home life/relationships? 


  • Are you feeling anxious?

  • Are you feeling preoccupied with worrying thoughts that are preventing you from living a fulfilling life?

  • Are you struggling with the relationships around you?

  • Are your past life experiences affecting your day to day well-being now?


I am a strong believer that each of us is the expert regarding our own thoughts, feelings, emotions and everyday processes.


You may well have a strong sense of what you are currently struggling with, but you maybe cannot name or understand it right now.


You know what it is that you do not want to feel or experience in your life anymore, but you maybe do not know how to go about making the necessary changes, or even where to begin.

Sometimes, issues, events and situations from our past or present can stay with us and end up negatively impacting our well-being today. Are you experiencing difficulties that are currently having an impact upon your relationships, job, happiness, well-being and everyday life?



I have over 8 years experience of working with individuals in private practice and within mental health organisations.

Fees, Availability &
My Approach

I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor, and the fundamental belief of the person-centred approach is that each of us has the potential to progress forward, to make positive changes and to gain a clearer perspective of ourselves and our lives.


This goal is supported by the therapeutic relationship built and created between the counsellor and client.

I have worked in private practice for over five years, where I have offered individual counselling. My fundamental framework and approach is Person-Centred, but I also integrate other approaches into the counselling sessions where appropriate.


The other approaches I have had training and certificates in are CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) T.A (Transactional Analysis) and Mindfulness.


I am passionate about mental health and Counselling. There is nothing more satisfying and rewarding than to witness clients I work with, grow, gain a new perspective and make positive changes to their life and mental well-being.


I will offer you a safe, supportive, non-judgemental, professional approach that will value you as an individual.

About me

Soon after finishing school, I became a manager of temporary accommodation for individuals and family's experiencing homelessness. I met many diverse people from all walks of life with all different stories, backgrounds and life experiences to share. I was in this position for three years and it was during this time that I realised I wanted to train to become a Counsellor.

I went on to complete two Counselling courses at Sussex Downs College, named, Introduction in Counselling Skills and Intermediate Counselling.

I later went on to complete a Foundation Degree in FdSc Person-Centred Counselling with the University of Brighton. I have attended many training courses through a position as a Recovery Worker in mental health such as A.S.I.S.T, safeguarding, equality and diversity, mindfulness, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Transactional analysis to add to my continuing professional development.

I am also a qualified trainer and have developed and delivered mental health awareness training within a mental health organisation and to external charitys'.
