Anxiety, Depression, Eating Disorders, OCD
Sarah Demaree is in the final stages of qualifying as a psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and as a Certified Transactional Analyst with the United Kingdom Association of Transactional Analysis.
Sarah is trained in Transactional Analysis, which integrates the psychoanalytic, behavioural and humanist traditions to look at what goes on inside people and between people to promote personal growth and change. The underlying philosophy of TA rests on three central beliefs: one, that all people are ok, loveable and creative, and that our intentions are normally positive and constructive, even when our behaviour is undesirable, misguided or destructive; two, that people in emotional difficulty can still think and take responsibility for themselves; and three, that all emotional and behavioural problems, given adequate knowledge and resources, are changeable.
Sarah has specialist training in working with eating disorders, particularly overeating and binge eating, having helped obese men and women lose and manage their weight successfully since 2006. Sarah also works with clients suffering from depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, stress, bereavement, and relationship and parenting issues.
Sarah is keenly interested in the new field of functional medicine, and the growing understanding of the role of nutrition in psychological disorders.
