About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed and out of control?

Perhaps you're used to looking after everyone else and don't know how to prioritise your own needs.

Have you had traumatic experiences that have made it difficult to build or maintain relationships with others?

Things can be different.

Therapy can help.

I can help.

Just by reading this, you have taken a really important step in your journey. I am a trauma specialist and can help with difficulties associated with all kinds of trauma, this includes birth trauma and helping you if you are an adult survivor of childhood trauma.

I work in a culturally sensitive way.

I am an experienced psychologist. My aim is to come along side you to support you in addressing difficulties that are preventing you from living the life you want.

Get in touch for a free 15 minute consultation to explore how we can work together to help you to thrive and move forward with hope.

"I found the sessions to be very beneficial, I felt listened to and Sarah always allowed me to express how I felt. Sarah gave me the opportunity at every session to cover anything I particularly thought would be beneficial. This was very positive and every session was professional and made me realise that how I was feeling and behaving was normal - this was very important." L.K., Hornchurch.

"I worked with Sarah to support me through some challenges I was having around anxiety. Sarah was attentive and highly professional. Sarah’s dynamic approach helped me to develop strategies best suited to my needs. I am very grateful for her support to re-gain my confidence and tackle my anxiety!" A.M., Canterbury
