About Sarah

About Me: 

I moved to Norfolk from the Midlands 30 years ago to study Fine Art at Norwich School of Art and Design (now Norwich university of the Arts). I've done lots of different work over the years, including various factory-based jobs, as a care worker, various pub and retail roles. Prior to training as a counsellor I worked with a partner to grow a successful online retail business. I'm a parent to two young adults. 

I'm neurodivergent, queer and creative. I like knitting, crocheting, dressmaking and dinosaurs. I don't like squelchy sounds or the colour red. 

My Experience:

I've worked in Private Practice for several years. Prior to that I worked for The Norwich Centre for Personal and Professional Development seeing all sorts of people bringing all sorts of issues, in both short and long term therapy. Whilst there I also worked with students from NUA. I have worked for The Sue Lambert Trust as a counsellor and group facilitator and have  worked for CRUSE as a Bereavement Support Worker. 

I have experience of working with people on anxiety, depression, self-esteem/self-worth, relating, bereavement and loss, with a particular interest in working with neurodiversity as well as gender, sexual and relationship diversity.

I've tutored on the Introduction and Certificate courses in Person Centred Counselling Skills at the Norwich Centre. I currently run an Encounter Group exploring personal and social identity and co-facilitate both an LGBTQIA+  and a Wellbeing group for The Sue Lambert Trust. 

My Qualifications:

Postgraduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling from the Norwich Centre for Personal and Professional Development. 

Postgraduate Certificate in Person Centred Counselling from the University of East Anglia.

Level 3 Certificate in Online Counselling Skills from Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body.

Form and Freedom: Person-Centred Supervision Training​​ with Cat Burton and Tonia Myhill.
