2018 Client: Adult female
“I came to see Sarah in September 2018, as I needed help to deal with the thoughts and feelings I was struggling with, having left my Husband of 41 years due to the effects of domestic abuse. I was suffering from anxiety and physical pains and was in a very distressed and depressed state.
Sarah helped immediately by giving me a ‘first aid’ toolkit to help me manage the overwhelming physical and seemingly uncontrollable thoughts. She then helped me work through the confusion and feelings of guilt and to understand that my Husband’s behaviour was not my fault.
Sarah is patient and caring and I trust her completely. So when she suggested using EMDR to help my brain process my experiences I agreed without hesitation. These sessions proved to be a turning point for me, especially in dealing with feelings of guilt. I would highly recommend it. You have nothing to fear as Sarah will help you through it safely and securely. Sarah has given me the tools I need for the future and people have been saying how I look as if I’ve had a weight lifted off and that’s exactly how I feel. I am now enjoying my life, have a hobby that I love and am seeing friends and family whenever I choose to. Sarah is an amazing psychologist and I would encourage you to get the help you need which this incredible lady will provide..”
2018 Client: Adult male experiencing difficulties with anxiety
“After one of the most difficult periods of my life, and thinking that I would never feel good about life or myself again, I was fortunate to be put in touch with Sarah.
She always listened to my troubles with compassion and without judgement.
She made me see the best in myself and encouraged me to think about life in a much better light.
The strategies Sarah gave me are ones I continue to use in my day to day life and have helped me succeed in a new job.
I am loving life more now than I have for a long time.
I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah to anyone who is having difficulties in their life.”
