My name is Sarah and I am a psychotherapist.  I was previously a lawyer for many years in London and the South East before taking time to raise my three children in Dorset.  From 2005, I embarked on counselling training and I then spent some years working as a practitioner with people struggling with addiction both in the Probation Service and for the charity sector.  In 2013 I moved with my husband and children to Lincolnshire.  Since then I have worked as a recovery practitioner, for the NHS, in a prison setting. I also obtained a Master’s degree and clinical qualification in Psychotherapy from The Sherwood Institute in Nottingham.  During that time I acquired extensive experience specialising in supporting men, women and children who were survivors of sexual abuse and assault, including childhood trauma.  Most recently I have worked as a lead counsellor in the charity sector and also as a psychotherapist for students at Birmingham University (BACP accredited).  I am now working exclusively in private practice.   




I work from my therapy room in my cottage, which used to be the original village Post Office.  Situated in the peaceful and picturesque village of Harlaxton near Grantham, Lincolnshire it is easily accessible from the A607, A1 and A52 and by public transport.  Please feel free to have a look around my website to help you decide if you would like to contact me.
