Sarah aims to support people to feel comfortable and her approach is to understand a person’s difficulties without judgement. She can offer a range of evidence-based therapies. Sometimes people know which therapy they want and sometimes the best approach is agreed following a thorough assessment and discussion.


Having worked as a Clinical Psychologist since 2008, Sarah has experience working with adults with a range of difficulties. She is experienced in supporting people with depression, low self esteem, anxiety, stress and burnout, trauma and post traumatic stress and adjustment to physical health problems. In the NHS she works in a senior role supporting people with long term pain and she also supervises other psychologists. Since achieving her doctorate in Clinical Psychology she has trained in a number of therapies and specialises in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR). ACT aims to reduce the impact of painful thoughts and feelings and helps us focus energy on valuable and fulfilling activities. EMDR helps us to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress arising from difficult life experiences. Sarah also draws from Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Sarah specialises in the psychological impact of physical health problems, helping people to adjust to changes to physical health and to learn to live well alongside symptoms that might persist.
