Sarah Roberts offers a warm and empathic space for clients to feel heard and accepted whatever their struggles. In addition, her integrative approach means that she may offer CBT skills and tools to help clients identify specific thought patterns and behaviours. She may also bring in Psychodynamic skills to help clients understand how the past is showing up in the present. Overall, Sarah works in a way that is client-led and tailored to be able to best support clients in processing difficult thoughts and feelings.
Sarah’s experience includes working in a variety of settings with survivors of trafficking, those who have experienced domestic abuse, and pregnancy loss clients. This has given her a familiarity with issues of abuse, trauma, loss and depression. With additional experience of working with anxiety, guilt and shame, Sarah understands how difficult it can be to face experiences in the past and present. She believes in the importance of counselling as a space to feel accepted and safe, which can allow clients to process even the most painful or difficult experience and emotions.
Sarah is a trainee integrative counsellor and psychotherapist at The Awareness Centre and sees NHS patients for counselling at a GP surgery in Lambeth. She is a student member of the BACP and is in her final year of an accredited master’s programme in integrative counselling & psychotherapy.
