12 Years Experience

Making the step to seek support can feel like a big decision, and finding the right professional is key in helping move things forward for you. I admire that you are taking the time to read through my profile and appreciate that it's important you feel happy with your choice of professional.

My name is Dr Sarah, and I'm a Practitioner Psychologist. My approach within sessions is often integrative, meaning that I draw on various different therapeutic models to make sure that the content of sessions and evidence based skills used are appropriate for you, rather than you having to fit a 'one size fits all' model (please see 'Approach' section for the therapeutic models my practice is informed by).

I recognise that people access psychological therapy for many of life's problems. It is at times of difficulty that it can be helpful to access a safe space to talk. Together we can explore what you would like your life to look like and work towards specific goals to create a more positive future. Through this service, psychological therapy is offered through a secure online facility using video calls so that we can communicate with ease. ​By working together in this way, tailored packages can be offered from the comfort of your own home.

** Please note that with the current outbreak of COVID-19 online therapy can be a useful tool to maintain mental health support and connection while social distancing or self-isolating. Sessions have been discounted as a result of the current climate.
Sessions are now £90 rather than the usual £120 (50-60 minutes).

For piece of mind it is worth knowing that I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the European Certificate in Psychology. Holding registration with each of these professional bodies means that I am required to maintain a high standard of professional conduct and code of ethics. And as a rule I make efforts to keep up to date with the latest developments in research and best practice to make sure I can provide the most quality treatment approaches and advice for you.

Qualifying as Doctor in Forensic Psychology, I specialised in forensic mental health whereby I have worked within clinical settings including secure inpatient hospitals (private and NHS) and have also provided community based support (private, NHS and online). What this means is that I have worked with a significant number of people helping to overcome the most difficult and complex of psychological problems related to various life struggles, mental health, trauma, addiction, offending behaviours and stress related issues.

Working with those who are most vulnerable in the community and hospital settings to high grade clinicians and business owners I have taken a personalised, flexible and tailored approach in order to help meet their needs and work towards their goals. I’m passionate about what I do, and love to help people enhance the quality of life that they lead. With this in mind working together and gaining a shared understanding of any difficulties faced and what you are aiming for is a crucial part of the process. Together we can identify barriers to success, and support you to bring about greater clarity, awareness and meaningful change though a safe platform of online video link therapy.
