Sarah Bates Therapist

About Me

Hello, I am Sarah, an Integrative and Transactional Psychotherapeutic Counsellor (long title I know). In a nutshell I work with clients both individuals and couples, to support and help them understand themselves, their wants, needs and beliefs.

Well done for recognising that you need some support and for reaching out, as I know that this isn’t always easy.

Starting your therapy journey, opening up and talking to someone about your thoughts, feelings and difficulties can seem a little daunting at first but the benefits can really help you understand yourself and make positive changes in your life.

The most important aspect of therapy for me, is developing a therapeutic relationship, a place where you can explore your feelings without fear of shame or judgement. Helping you work through what it is you want for yourself and your future. I am an experienced, accredited therapist, I work relationally utilising different therapy styles to suit your individual needs.

I believe that the therapy room should be a safe, confidential space, where you can explore and discover more about yourself and facilitate personal growth, challenging and changing unhelpful patterns and behaviours, ultimately to help you to achieve greater happiness in your own life.
