Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist (MBACP)
Hello, my name is Sarah Roberts and I am an Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist who works with adults. I am currently available to work online with clients across the UK, and in-person with clients in London – including at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney, E8.
I use the terms counselling and psychotherapy/therapy interchangeably when referring to the support I provide through listening, warmth, gentle challenge, exploration and empathy in a confidential and safe environment.
Some people come to therapy knowing what they want from it, and some people come confused and unsure. Whichever you relate to more, we will work together at your pace towards healing and change.
The therapeutic approaches I have integrated into my practice are:
– Psychodynamic therapy (including attachment-based theory)
– Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
I also draw from ideas from Gestalt therapy and Transactional Analysis (TA) and have an interest in the enneagram as a tool to develop self-awareness.
Training and Experience
I have completed certificates in Helpline Skills (Kirklees Rape and Sexual Abuse Counselling Centre – KRASACC), Introduction to Counselling Skills (The Minster Centre) and Moving Your Practice Online (Online Therapy Institute).
I have also gained a qualification in Mental Health First Aid and Advocacy in the Workplace (Learning Curve Group) and graduated with an MA with a Distinction in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (University of Roehampton).
Prior to counselling training, I gained experience working with survivors of human trafficking, survivors of domestic abuse, and people dealing with unplanned pregnancies.
As a therapist, I have experience working with the NHS to provide short-term therapy, as well as providing long-term therapy at community centres in London and at a pregnancy loss service.
I have worked with clients from a range of ages and backgrounds facing trauma, bereavement and loss, anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, life transitions and change, anger, confusion, feeling stuck and identity issues.
As a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), I am committed to an ethical framework and code of conduct, alongside ongoing learning and growth through Continuing professional development (CPD).
I offer a free 15-20 minute phone call for an opportunity for you to ask questions and an initial chance to see if I might be the right counsellor for you. After this, each 50-minute session is £65.
Some people prefer to skip the phone call and meet for a full 50-minute initial session – whether this is also on the phone, via Zoom, or face-to-face. In this case, the initial session will cost £45, with any following sessions charged at £65.
