My name is Sarah and I am a fully qualified and accredited psychotherapist. I am trained in Core Process Psychotherapy which is mindfulness based approach to therapy. Core Process psychotherapy is based on the assumption that at the core of all of every human being is an intrinsic state of health, awareness, compassion, and wisdom.
Some people choose to go to psychotherapy in order to learn more about themselves and enhance their potential for growth. However, Core Process Psychotherapy can also been used to treat a wide range of specific conditions, including:
.What I offer?
I offer both long and short-term counselling and psychotherapy with individuals on a face-to-face basis.
