I’m Sarah and I’m a therapist offering sessions online or in person in Chorley, Lancashire.  

I am committed to providing you with a peaceful space, where you are free to say the things you are really thinking, free from judgement and worry about upsetting or not pleasing someone.  A place where you can truly be honest with yourself and begin to heal. 

There is no ‘one size fits all’ in therapy.  Your sessions will be tailored to you, your needs and concerns.  Providing you with the opportunity to understand yourself better,   realise how and what you think and feel, what you truly value and believe and appreciate who you are.

Outside Therapy

Outside the therapy room I love to swim and practice yoga.  I’m currently learning breathwork which is both challenging and wonderful in equal measures!  I like to swap my Dr Martens for my walking boots on a regular basis, combining my love of nature and passion for photography!    I’m partial to great coffee and a good book too!

Inclusive & Diversity Practice

I work with people of all genders, ages, disabilities, neuro-diversities, cultures, ethnicity, sexes, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, class, and socio-economic groups.     When meeting in person, my room is on the ground floor and fully accessible or alternatively we can meet via Zoom.    I use dyslexia friendly fonts and off-white paper.  Should you have any specific learning or accessibility needs, I will work hard to understand your uniqueness and meet your needs as best as I possibly can.

The next step

The next step is to arrange an introductory call (either by phone or by zoom).  This call will last about 20 minutes and will give us the chance to get to know each other.  You can ask any questions you might have and I can explain a little about how I work.    This will help you decide whether therapy feels right for you and whether or not you feel comfortable with me.
