I’m Sarah, an integrated therapist. I started talking therapy as a career change after witnessing the impact of life challenges upon those around me, at home and at work. I felt ill-equipped to support them. At the same time, I observed positive changes in colleagues, friends and family who had sought help through therapy. This inspired me to become a therapist.
I started my therapy journey by understanding myself, exploring how I came to be what I am today. Through personal therapy, I experienced those bumps in the road that are an inevitable part of what you will experience when we work together to rebuild your mental fitness. This has aided my growth as a therapist, and means I understand that therapy is not about “what is wrong with you”, it is about “what has happened to you”. Our past experiences, good and bad, make us what we are today. We can use that knowledge to strengthen our wellbeing, and build our future.
This doesn’t mean having to relive personal trauma. Sometimes, simply understanding how you came to be what you are today can be enlightening. It can provide the platform from which to build your future self.
