Counselling by Sarah
A warm welcome...
I'm Sarah, a highly qualified, independant Therapist. Thank you for viewing my website.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, I am not providing face to face client work. However, I am happy to say that I am providing online therapy to clients across the UK & USA.
Being based in the UK, it has meant a great deal to me to be recommended to clients in the USA also. I feel extremely privileged that my clients have included high profile people, known to the media; & also their children.
I hold Specialist qualifications in counselling children & young people. Trauma Therapy for adults & children; PTSD, Complex Trauma & Developmental Trauma & Relationship Counselling.
I’ve been the West Mercia Specialist Therapist for specialist rape charity, Family Matters UK for 8 years across Herefordshire, Worcestershire & Shropshire. I provide specialist therapy for child & adult victims of rape & sexual abuse, usually referred by West Mercia Police, GP’s & Social Services. I am experienced in Pre-trial therapy.
I previously ran the Changing Young Lives Project; A Specialist Counselling Project for Family Matters UK in Herefordshire, Monmouthshire & Gwent providing therapy sessions for victims of rape & sexual abuse, under the age of 16. I’ve also worked for the University Of Wales in primary schools across Wales & have seen clients for Social Services in Cardiff, Newport, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire & Gloucestershire.
For 7 years I thoroughly enjoyed being the School Counsellor at Weobley High School Herefordshire; a fantastic school that provides genuine care & goes above & beyond for all of it’s students.
I pride myself on being highly qualified; I hold a Specialist Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Children & Young People & a degree in Therapeutic Counselling. My commitment to my role means I embark on regular, ongoing training, such as; Safeguarding for Adults & Children, Self Harm, Integral Eye Movement Therapy, Relationship Counselling, Trauma Therapy.
My work is my passion; exactly why I strive to achieve the highest counselling qualifications I can ~ for my clients!
I understand and respect that each client is unique, has walked their own path and has their own story to tell... I feel highly privileged to be a part of that journey and put my heart and soul in to my work...
"People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner". I don't try to control a sunset....I watch with awe as it unfolds" ~ Carl Rogers founder of Humanistic Psychology Movement.
