A Bit About Therapy

I use effective psychotherapy methods  with my clients to encourage personal insight and instill self-understanding. This compassionate and supported self-reflection fosters new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix. Therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and therapist alike. But the willingness and ability to make small changes to self-defeating behaviour and finding ways to cope with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.

Hello. Welcome to my website. My name is Sarah and I'm a professionally qualified and experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist, clinical supervisor and EMDR therapist in private practice, based in various locations around Sussex.

As a professional psychotherapist, I provide a safe and confidential space in which you can talk about and explore whatever is troubling you and together we can start to make sense of your distress.

People have sought my help in the past for many reasons, such as:

~Feelings of anxiety, tension, fearfulness, including panic attacks

~Finding it hard to build or sustain good relationships
