About me

                              St Albans, Harpenden, Hitchin and Online 

Experienced and highly trained, I offer bespoke sessions and packages to individuals, couples and young people. 

I have worked within mental wellbeing and coaching for over 18 years and enjoy creating meaningful change that lasts. Rapport is essential to any therapeutic or coaching relationship - a free of charge consultation allows you to get to know me and how I work without obligation. 

Where to start?

We use the initial consultation to discuss that you are looking to achieve. To delve a little deeper into your beliefs and limiting beliefs about yourself, and about the world around you.  I utilise my background in Psychology, Cognitive Hypnotherapy, NLP, EMDR, AMDR and Coaching to help you identify the unconscious blocks that are holding you back from how you would like to feel or what you would like to achieve.

Who do I work with?

I have experience of working with a wide range of people and issues. Though sessions together we are looking to understand more fully how you are personally creating the world around you. The means that I always look at your past, present and future, to help you build a more detailed picture of your internal world. It is only when we have a complete picture that we can begin to apply tools, techniques to the goals that you want to achieve. 

Young People

I work with young people to help them further understand themselves and also work with a range of issues that they may be experiencing. Rapport is really important, and especially needs to be present when working with young people. After meeting, you decide if you want to work together. It's important that this decision is yours!

Couples/Relationship Coaching

I work with couples separately and also together. We develop a plan which works for you both to get you the most effective results. Our relationships often bring up our biggest fears and triggers - we create a non judgemental space to explore this safety. Creating more understanding, communication and a deeper sense of belonging and love.

I love working with people to help them see the patterns which have been holding them back or creating feelings or ideas which don't serve them. It is a pleasure to help people see themselves the way that so many people already see them. I create a safe, non judgemental space for people to really explore all sides of themselves.

I also offer the Safe and Sound Protocol to those that I work with. The SSP is specially designed music which has been proven to reduce anxiety and help with creating more focus, and increased feelings of wellbeing

"In hindsight, when I started seeing Sarah, I think I was having an emotional breakdown.  On paper, my life was great, but it was a struggle for me, both emotionally and physically just getting through most days.......She helped me to think more clearly and to understand why I felt so anxious. She taught me practical thinking mechanisms, so now I look at problems and challenges in a different way; a more positive and effective way; I would not have got through the last year without her support, and what she taught me has enabled me now to move on and face the world as the happy person I always used to me.  Sarah was a ray of sunshine in my life when I needed it most; I cannot recommend her highly enough." Karen

When I first met Sarah I was in a very low dark place, I had tried the ‘conventional’ counselling/therapy route and didn’t feel that was the answer. I was very distressed and depressed when I first met Sarah yet after I came away from our first session I had this relaxed feeling. For the first time in my life I am not needing to run away from my feelings." Michael

"Sarah is calm, friendly and very approachable a great listener with a lovely manner. She is non judgemental and completely professional.Her sessions are engaging and exceeded my expectations. Sarah has helped me see things from a fresh perspective.  I was very lucky to choose Sarah as my coach as I always feel in tune with her during the sessions. “ Alison!
