Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach
Sarah’s humanistic and integrative approach aims to support clients in their search for a life less challenging. She offers a safe and non-judgemental space where clients can explore the issues affecting their lives, recognize their strengths and abilities and move towards belief in self. Personal growth and change empower clients, awakening a world of choice, self- control, healing and hope.
Sarah believes that the connection between therapist and client is the most important aspect of therapy where clients can feel supported in their vulnerability. She facilitates clients to process challenges, practice self-care, use supports and restore balance.
