Sarah Stevens

At 50 years of age I changed direction and retrained in something that has been close to my heart for many years having experienced the healing benefits of counselling.

I qualified as a Psychotherapeutic counsellor in 2018 and have been in practice since then, working as a counsellor (and supervisor) for an eating disorder charity as well as having my own private counselling practice supporting people with many different struggles in their lives.

Whilst having worked for many years as a counsellor and supervisor within the arena of eating disorders, I can offer help to anyone who is struggling to fit in to their world, however that may be manifesting, and wants to have a more secure sense of self.  

My therapeutic way of working is putting you at the heart of our sessions together. As a integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor I work in a trauma informed way, drawing on different theoretical backgrounds to work creatively with your needs. 

Together we will explore the landscape in which you find yourself and together we will find ways to change your relationship with whatever is causing you distress.  

Essentially I prefer to work with people face to face, in person however, I know that this is not always possible so I am happy to work via Zoom too.  I do also offer a 'walk and talk' therapeutic service when we spend time in nature which is another method of work that I value.

Do contact me for any more information as I am happy to answer any questions that you may have and I would love to engage with you in finding your way through your challenges in life.
