Sara aims to collaborate closely with her clients to tailor any therapeutic intervention to their individual needs. Her personal philosophy as a therapist is to nurture a supportive, flexible and encouraging environment in which to identify the elements maintaining one’s difficulties. In addition she aims to support the individual to recognise their inner strengths for helping them to overcome adversity, whilst simultaneously exploring new and adaptive strategies and tools for addressing the presenting psychological difficulties and progressing forwards. Sara’s approach is informed mainly by Cognitive and Behavioural therapy (including Mindfulness, ACT and Compassion Focussed approaches) and is essentially practical and solution–focused. Her diverse training means that she also draws from a range of other influential theoretical models, including Person-Centred Therapy, Schema-Focused Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy.
