Sara’s practice is rooted in a deep and genuine interest to help people live more fulfilled lives that they feel in control of. She provides a safe, empathic, and empowering space where clients can freely process the difficulties, they are experiencing. As an integrative therapist, Sara uses both person-centred and psychodynamic approaches. This means she focuses on the client’s needs, believing in their autonomy to make their own decisions, whilst supporting them to develop a greater self-awareness on how their past may be affecting their present. Sara supports her clients in discovering parts of themselves that they may be unaware of.
