What do they say about me?

"I have no hesitation in recommending Sarah.  She is a warm, resourceful and empathetic therapist whose clients are well-supported to make great progress."   (Supervisor.)

"It took me 5 years to find a therapist I could work with.  So glad I found Sarah... life is good now."  (Past client.)

"I was terrified to see a counsellor, but knew I needed help.  Amazingly, things started to feel more manageable from the very first session."  (Past client.)

"Sarah is up for the big challenge - luckily for me!  She makes you think you can do it. I hoped - at most - to learn to cope better with lifelong anxiety, however, it is all but gone..."  (Past client.)

Welcome - Edinburgh & online

I offer therapy to adults and young people from all backgrounds.  I take a broad, flexible, neuroscientifically-informed approach that is particularly helpful for managing issues such as anxiety, depression and unhelpful patterns of thoughts or behaviour.  I bring compassion and informed curiosity to bear on how we got to be where we are, in order that we may work out where we want to go next...


I often find myself working with those who have so far felt rather stuck...  Young people... people from overseas... professionals and academics... People who've seen a lot of other therapists. Outdoor types... those who tend towards logic and science...  Those who want a real understanding of what is going on for them and why...

Have a look around my site for information about counselling in general, and about me and my approach.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you think I may be able to help you.  If I can't, I'll do my best to signpost you somewhere that can.
