Psychotherapy focuses on the here and now of a client’s thoughts, feelings and situation, providing a safe space for the client to explore and expand their awareness around, how they are feeling and what they are doing. Psychotherapy privileges experiential learning which is a process of learning through experience, rather than just talking about something. Sarah helps clients to actually feel into their experience and expand their awareness around their relationship to themselves and others. This helps to create more effective solutions to the clients issues or problems and generate sustainable change and transformation.
In Psychotherapy the therapeutic relationship is seen as a healing relationship. This is backed by recent research in Neuroscience which has discovered that a relationship with someone who can supply support and understanding reshapes a person’s neurological possibilities. That is, with the right supportive environment, change is possible. For this reason investing in yourself today through therapy is a commitment to yourself that reaps rewards for years to come.
