Qualifications and experience
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I practice within their ethical framework.
I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor. I undertook my training at the University of Brighton. In practice I draw on theories including person-centred, existential principles and Transactional Analysis.
I hold a certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling.
Alongside my private practice (Counselling with Sarah), I volunteer with a charity that supports carers. Counselling support is offered to a range of caring roles, such as parents, someone with dementia, Alzheimer’s, Autism, someone with a mental health issue, drug and alcohol issue or learning difficulties. In the past I have also volunteered for Brighton and Hove Mind and local low cost counselling service.
I continue to update my practice through attending seminars, courses, workshops, networking with other professionals, reading books, papers and outcomes of research. I am on the Committee of a local network of practicing counsellors and psychotherapists, which I currently hold the role as Secretary.
